Sundays at Unity Church
Sunday worship at Unity Church is a cornerstone of our religious community. It is where we envision and create a new reality for a better world. It allows us to come together for community and deepen our individual spirit. It is about us coming together as a religious family. It is where we practice being our best selves. It is an encounter with mystery and awe to plumb our spiritual depths.
During the church year, worship services are held at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 4:30 p.m., except where noted. From the Sunday before Memorial Day through the Sunday before Labor Day, there is just one service each week at 10:00 a.m.
The entrance to the Sanctuary is at 733 Portland Avenue and parking is available in the church's lot on the corner of Portland Avenue and St. Albans Street. Map and Directions
April Sunday Worship
April 2: Whose Are We?
Having wrestled with the concept of sin, we turn our attention to what redeems us. Rev. Janne Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Rochelle Lockridge will explore the spiritual lessons of interdependence and the process of redemption.

April 9: Till Sleeping Nations Woke
In the Hebrew Scriptures, God seems to love the cities best. Whether shown by Jonah’s mission to the Ninevites or the ways in which Jesus turns toward Jerusalem, it’s clear that God loves the diverse peoples and creative potential of the city. As we enter into what Christians call the Passion Week, Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Grant Wacker hope to shed some light on the redemptive power of these places where we gather in great numbers.

April 16: Practice Resurrection: Peter’s Denials
Easter Family Sunday: Worship at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. only
At the Last Supper, Jesus predicts that before the cock crows Peter will deny knowing him three times. It comes to pass. Shamed and devastated, Peter somehow finds his way back to life and service. He is redeemed. How do we rise up from despair? How do we find our call to ministry after we’ve been captured by remorse? The whole church family will gather for a joyful Easter celebration as together we find that the stone’s been rolled away and the tomb is empty. There will be no 4:30 service on Easter Sunday.

On Family Sundays, children experience the entire worship service together with their families in the Sanctuary. A children’s message and activity books related to the stories and sermon help children to engage in the experience of worship. Regular religious education programming does not take place on Family Sundays; however, the nursery is open for children under five years of age.
April 23: Wake Now My Senses
Earth Day is an opportunity to be mindful and caring of this planet. Join Hallman Ministerial Intern Jessica Clay and worship associate Nicole Lynskey as they explore theological perspectives in caring for the earth and our responsibility towards the redemption and repair of it.

April 30: Coming of Age Sunday
Coming of Age Sunday celebrates the signature year-long journey of our 9th grade youth, transitioning from the inherited faith of childhood to the adult journey of faith, and marked by youth sharing their statement of faith or Credo. COA youth, mentors, and families will be present at the 9:00 a.m. service, while all services will include a collage of voices, with religious education staff and ministers leading in joyful celebration.
