We Are Part of a Worldwide Spiritual Movement…
Unity Spiritual Center is part of a world-wide spiritual movement with headquarters in Unity Village, Missouri, near Kansas City. Unity is a way of life. It is often called “a positive path for spiritual living.” We have no set creed in Unity, but we do have five foundation statements that express the essence of who we are.
Unity is a teaching of personal empowerment. Our commitment as a congregation is to be a support system for each other as we seek individually and collectively to live in alignment with God, the Spirit of Infinite Goodness, and create happy, healthy, prosperous, fulfilling lives.
We welcome you with open hearts and affirm the truth of these words: “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters dwell in Unity!” (Psalms 133:1).

Crafting a Year of Intention & Power: 12 Creative Salons
February 25: STRENGTH
(Taught by Shiloh Sophia, www.shilohsophia.com) Saturday, February 25, 1-6 p.m.
Monthly workshops with kindred spirits taught by well-known Bay Area artists exploring your possibilities and potential by creating your very own Book of Powers…
Unity teaches that every person has 12 Powers that, when developed and consciously used, can bring us to our highest potential as expressions of the Divine. This year, starting on February 25 and concluding in January 2018, you will have the opportunity to work with Unity minister/author Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon and several well-known local Intentional Creativity© teachers in constructing chapters for your very own Book of Powers, as we explore together how to craft a Power-full year!
Held at Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco on the third or fourth Saturday of each month (please check schedule for the exact date), a Bay Area artist and Intentional Creativity© teacher will lead you through an art activity exploring that month’s Power that will result, at the end of this year of exploration, in a book celebrating your 12 Powers of strength, wisdom, love, power, imagination, understanding, will, order, zeal/enthusiasm, elimination/release, life, and faith.
You are invited to attend any and all of these afternoons, and no previous art experience is necessary. Working with watercolor paper, watercolor and marker, each of us will create an illumination of image and word exploring these Powers…your Powers!
Each afternoon will open in a circle with refreshments and poetry so that we can get to know one another and support each other’s intentions. The time will always be from 1 to 6 p.m., and each session costs $75, which includes all art supplies. Join kindred spirits as we explore together the power of Intentional Creativity©, sacred practice and community in developing our Divine potential!

USC Annual Meeting

12:15 – 2 p.m.
Do plan on joining us for our Annual Meeting following the Sunday service on February 26; we’ll be taking a look back at our achievements last year, tell you about plans for this year, and hold elections for new members of the USC Board, so if you turned in your Member Reaffirmation form (or become a member this month by taking the Membership Class), you’ll be able to vote.
We’ll also leave time for you to offer your good ideas and suggestions…so save the date and do plan to attend!
Open Hours for Creative Projects
Thursdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Do you have creative projects that you’d love to start (or finish), but don’t have the space — or haven’t made the time?
Then plan to spend Thursdays at Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco, where we offer open “studio” hours every week from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. so you can create! You can write in our quiet Sanctuary or paint/craft in our break room… just bring your supplies and stay for an hour or two (or all day)!
Get Rewarded for Giving
You can set up an automatic credit-card tithe or love offering… and get reward points on your credit card! You may not know that you can join others at USC in setting up a monthly, automated credit-card tithe or love offering. Setting up this automatic system, at whatever amount you choose, helps both USC and you in a number of ways… we can plan on that specific amount of monthly income, and you can reap any rewards that your particular card offers!
Just fill out the credit-card form in the literature rack in the front foyer (and remember that you can cancel the automated system at any time), and turn the form in (you can leave it in the wooden box on the Bookstore gate). If you have any questions, please call the office at 415-566-4122. Thank you for helping us… and your reward points… grow!
Please help us serve our spiritual community better by filling out our survey!
Through Sunday, February 12, we are conducting a survey of all USC friends and members in order to serve you better. The paper survey will be distributed in the Sunday bulletins, and we can also fax, email or send you one if you contact the office (you can also click the link below for a version that you can print out and bring in).
This survey is completely anonymous; it consists mainly of multiple-choice and ranking questions to get a clearer understanding of how USC can expand its capacity to serve you, our beloved spiritual community. This is also a chance for us to dream big…what would we like to co-create here at USC as we enter our 71st year and beyond? So let your voice be heard…fill out the questionnaire, drop it into the gold box in the front foyer (or give it to our Office Manager, Jeannine Etter)…and thank you in advance for your participation!
