Welcome 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).

Ongoing…

Open Hours for Creative Projects

Thursdays, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.watercolors
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.- 3 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!
