Some of our New Members, September 2016.

• Only members can vote on important church matters – election of Trustees, purchase of real estate, calling of a special meeting, etc.

• Becoming a member is an important step that demonstrates your commitment to this church, our spiritual community, and Unity as your spiritual path.

• Membership is a public affirmation of Unity’s place in your life and in our world. It inspires others to consider taking this same step.

• As a member of Unity, you are a part of a growing group, around the world, that stands for the universal principle that God is Love and present in all people.
