March 11 It’s Time to Flip Your Mattress


When Jesus told the paralytic by the Pool of Bethesda, (John 5:2-23) “Get up, pick up your mat and walk”, was that a simple command to end the 38 years that the man had sat by the pool? Or can we infer something much deeper in that phrase, something that we can apply to our everyday lives? It’s Time to Flip your Mattress is the title of this Sunday’s March 11 lesson. I look forward to seeing you at 10:00 AM. Angie Aldarondo will be our vocalist.

March 18 It’s Time to Boogey

Someone once said that “Inspiration without action amount only to entertainment.” Yes, it is important to take action and we see this very clearly in all the stories that we read about in scripture. Before most of the miracles of healing that Jesus performed, there was some action that was taken before the healing actually took place. Let us explore, how specific action can move us in the direction of our dreams. See you at 10:AM

February 18, 2018 This Sunday

We all have heard the phrase, mind over matter at one time or another. In a nutshell, it means that our minds have power over outer circumstances.  Yet this Sunday, I will propose to you that the phrase, Mind over mind (upper case and lower case are intentional) not only makes more sense, but it has a much practical application whether we are seeking to express wholeness, harmony or prosperity. I look forward to seeing you Sunday at 10. On the way to church, please only go through clear intersections.

This Sunday, Feb 11, 2018

How did Myrtle Fillmore’s healing from tuberculosis actually happen? Does anyone know? Was it overnight or was it the result of mental paradigm shift?

These and other questions that can bring about healing will be discussed this Sunday. Ishtar will be our vocalist.

Weddings and More

Weddings, Christenings, Memorial Services, and Home, Office and Pet Blessings and more… all are among the ways we can support you in your desire to recognize and celebrate the spiritual dimensions of the passages in your life and the lives of your loved ones. For more information, please contact us.

We can help make one of the most important days of your life even more meaningful. Unity is a Christian church where people of all faiths may be married. Our ministers officiate at weddings in many locations. You may choose to have your wedding in an outdoor garden, in your favorite hotel, at home, or another special place.

Christening is an ancient ritual that predates even the earliest Christian traditions. The rite and the interpretation of its meaning have undergone many changes over time, and today christening is practiced in many different ways. The purpose of Christening is to recognize the spiritual identity and purpose of a soul. In Unity, we look to the example of Jesus as our guide.

mother and childIn Mark 10: 13-16 we read that Jesus took children in his arms and blessed them.

Christening in Unity is the act of welcoming a child into our world and recognizing this soul by name in its human journey. It is a time for parents to dedicate themselves to raising their child in an awareness of God’s loving presence.

Godparents ~ You may choose as many people as you wish, or have no Godparents. There is no legal obligation or responsibility made through a Christening service.

Spiritual Baptisms ~ For children and adults, we also provide a baptism service.

butterfly-monarchMemorial Services
At the time of the passing of a loved one, many people want a service and don’t know where to turn. We are here to support people in times of grief and loss. We can provide services at the location of your choice. Our services are positive, uplifting celebrations of the life lived. We honor each person’s spiritual traditions.

Home Blessings
A private home blessing ceremony acknowledges and honors your home as sacred space, a sanctuary of love, peace and joy. Many people request a home blessing as they settle into a new home or apartment, but a home blessing ceremony is appropriate at any time, whether you have just moved in or have lived in your home for many years.

Power of Prayer

prayerThe Prayer for Protection*
The light of God surrounds me;
The love of God enfolds me;
The power of God protects me;
The presence of God watches over me.
Wherever I am, God is!

“Beloved, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours.”
– Mark 11:24

Unity is a ministry founded on the power of prayer. It was through prayer that our co-founders, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, received significant and seemingly miraculous healings. Prayer always has been central to Unity and to our ministry at Unity Sample.
