New to Unity? What to Expect

New to Unity of Portland?

If you are looking for a spiritual community of loving people, you have come to the right place. Our community is made up of people, like yourself, who have been looking for an open-minded spiritual community. We are here because we’re on a spiritual journey to become all that we were created to be.

Unity welcomes people of all religious backgrounds and beliefs. We welcome people of all creeds, sexual orientation, and social background. There are no exceptions in our welcome to everyone. In Unity, we don't tell people what to think; rather, we offer tools that individuals can use to create lives of meaning and purpose. It’s an exciting time to be here because we are being asked to evolve individually, collectively and globally.  We know that positive, empowering transformation is occurring!

Please stop by and check us out. You will find a warm welcome awaits you, and when you’re ready, we’ll support you in making friends and finding ways to have meaningful connections within the community. If you have questions, please contact me. I look forward to meeting you.


What to Expect at Unity

We hold an hour-long "Soul Celebration" service at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays, and at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. (You can dress up if you like, but you do not have to!)

You can expect to find a loving community, filled with friendly people and families from all different lifestyles.

Wherever you are in your life's journey, Unity of Portland is here for you. We lovingly invite you to visit us and discover your new spiritual home


Bringing Children?

If you bring children to the 11 am service, the greeter will direct you downstairs where children are signed into their special Sunday Soul Celebration. 

At the conclusion of the service, the children are brought into the Sanctuary for a brief time to be with us, sing the Peace Song and interact with us.  They will go back downstairs so you can sign them out.  Alternately, your children are welcome to stay with you during the service. 

At the beginning of the service, the minister will ask if there are any newcomers and (if you’re comfortable doing so) to raise a hand so that ushers may deliver a welcome folder with information about this community.

Our Sunday services are best summed up as “music, meditation, message.”  The music will vary between our in-house band, the choir, guest performers/soloists, and some congregation-wide singing which will always have the lyrics projected on a screen. A guided meditation will last 5-7 minutes, followed by the minister’s main message which combines spirituality, science, and ancient wisdom.

Join Us For Connection Hour

After the service, congregants gather in our Friendship Hall for coffee and fellowship. Here you'll have a chance to meet others, ask questions, and pick up materials about upcoming events and ongoing activities within our spiritual community. We also have a Welcome Table just outside our Sanctuary where you can pick up an informational packet about Unity of Portland, and get answers to any other questions you may have.

We look forward to having you with us!
