Being of Sacred Service
In Unity, we feel a sacred responsibility, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference through personal example and active service in our churches, our communities and our world.
We believe being of loving service is a sacred pathway to experiencing Spirit’s Presence; and being of Sacred Service is essential to one’s spiritual growth. We believe being of service creates an opening for us to realize the Christ presence within ourselves and others.
We invite you to look at the opportunities we offer to be of Spiritual Sacred Service, not only as a way of supporting the ministry, but more as an opportunity to create heaven on earth, here now. As a spiritual community, we are participants in creation. Let us create an atmosphere that fosters loving support and fellowship while providing the opportunity to experience an ever-increasing expression of God in our community and within ourselves.
Being of loving service comes with its own perks, such as:
- Insight into developing our natural gifts and talents.
- Heightens our awareness of spiritual principle.
- Empowers nurturing relationships.
- Giving from love always raises consciousness.
- Helps us remember who we are, expressions of God/Co-Creators.
Our Spiritual community has said “Yes” to creating a field of love and the opportunity for the Holy Spirit to express Itself through us. Our intention is to maintain a safe, empowering place for people to remember and experience the truth of who they have come here to be through sacred service and education.
