to Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco! We invite you to explore all the resources here for living a more meaningful life. Please join us for an inspiring service Sunday at 11 a.m.
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).

11 a.m. Sunday Service with Guest Speaker Arlene Jech “The Book of Revelation”
Do plan on joining us on Sunday, January 22, as USC Board member and Aramaic scholar Arlene Jech returns to provide a look at the often misunderstood Book of Revelation through the lens of Aramaic (the language of Jesus) translations.

It’s sure to be enlightening and inspiring, so feel free to bring a friend or family member… everyone is always welcome at USC!

Guest Speaker Marcie Guzman
Sunday, January 29, 11 a.m.
Marcie Guzman began a quest to find a church whose spiritual essence would be fulfilling. Her search led her to Unity, where the message of the Divine resonated and so her spiritual journey began.
Marcie is a busy professional, but is very committed to God and loves to serve as it strengthens her spiritual journey. Her talents are complemented by her passion and enthusiasm for living life to its fullest. She is often sought out for speaking engagements, so do plan to attend on Sunday, January 29!

Just a Reminder…
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!
Throughout the month of January, we will be conducting a survey of all USC friends and members in order to serve you better. The paper survey will be distributed in all Sunday bulletins throughout the month, and we can also fax, email or send you one if you contact the office (we are also looking into ways to offer it online).
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!
Rev. Maggie on Sabbatical
January 10-January 29
USC’s beloved Rev. Maggie is taking some much needed time off for a little R&R! Messages left specifically for Rev. Maggie won’t be returned until she returns from sabbatical on Monday, January 30. Office Manager Jeannine Etter will be in the office as usual on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during Rev. Maggie’s leave.
Thanks to You, We Met The Challenge!
Because we raised more than $7,070.70 by the date of our 70th anniversary,
the matching amount will be DOUBLED by our generous anonymous donor!
We give thanks to God and to our generous donor, and we give thanks to all of you who helped us to meet this challenge so that we can continue to enhance our beloved USC environment and offerings as we move into our 71st year!
We are so blessed…we are so thankful…and working together, we DID this!
Want Some “Studio Time”?
OPEN HOURS FOR CREATIVE PROJECTS
EVERY THURSDAY FROM 10 AM – 4 PM
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)!
