Sacred Service

We believe all service is an act of devotion to God and your community of faith. We draw closer to God as we draw closer, in loving service, to each other. Service is a key part of spiritual growth and personal transformation. To evolve, you’ve got to get involved.

We believe that everyone has something to give. And we believe that everyone is called to service. There are many places to become involved here at Unity on the North Shore and to accelerate your growth through service. You can be involved a lot or a little. Behind the scenes or out in front — it's up to you. We have a place for you. Our minister and leaders are happy to talk to you and help you find your perfect place.
