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/May Sunday Worship
April 29: Coming of Age
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 4:30 p.m. service, while all services will include a collage of voices, with religious education staff and ministers leading in joyful celebration.

May 13: Raising Kids Who Care
What gives rise to compassion? The images are everywhere. Compassion is born of brokenness. Hope takes hold first in broken hearts. And so this Mother’s Day, on the verge of the start of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, we’re going to sing and celebrate the blues, not out of melancholy, but with that deep resilience that every mother needs to know. Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Kevin Ward will lead the service. Music by the great guitarist Dean McGraw, along with a few of his friends.

May 20: Flower Communion Family Sunday
Join the whole church family and bring a flower to place on the Flower Communion arch as we celebrate the resilience and diversity of the Beloved Community. This uniquely Unitarian Universialist ritual recalls the life and ministry of Norbert Čapek who defied the Nazis and died a martyr at Dachau. The 9:00 and 4:30 services will include a ceremony of dedication for older children. Please contact Michelle Hill at email@example.com if your would like your child to participate.

On Family Sundays, children experience the entire worship 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.
May 27: “…for Peace and a New Hope”
One service only at 10:00 a.m.
Archibald Macleish asks “Whether our lives and deaths were for peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say; it is you who must say this.” Each year on the Sunday before Memorial Day we invite the congregation to honor those who have died and those whose lives have been forever changed by war. Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs and a worship associate drawn from among our many veterans will offer a poignant, powerful service to close our series on hope.
