Thank you for your support!
During this unprecedented time, we have worked hard to stay connected with our community by offering an online self-care class, a multiple-session art class, three different book-study classes, Daily Word readings and guided meditations at noon three days a week, and of course Sunday services. If you have enjoyed one or more of these, would you please consider giving a donation to Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco? Our expenses continue during this time of sheltering-in-place, so your generous support of USC as we continue to offer spiritual support really helps!
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).

Join Us for Our
Live Zoom Sunday Service
on February 28, at 11 a.m.,
Followed by USC’s Zoom Annual Meeting…
Dear USC Family,
As you know, we will be meeting virtually on Zoom through the first quarter of this year–our 75th anniversary year!
To make it easier for us to connect, we use the same URL for every event. The events will still require you to enter through a waiting room, and to type in a passcode. Here is the link for every gathering, along with the passcode:
Join Zoom Meeting:
(If you forget the passcode, it is the zip code of the church followed by the numeral 1.)
After the service, we hold a “hospitality hour” at the same link…it’s been great to get to check in with each other in a more casual way and everyone is invited to join us! However, this Sunday we will be holding our Annual Meeting following the service, in which we will be giving you updates about USC and electing new Board members, so please plan on staying for this!
We are still using our YouTube channel as a gathering place; and you can always access it at your leisure to find videos that we have recorded in the past (there are approximately 150 videos for you to watch!). Our USC YouTube channel can be found here or by copying this URL and pasting it into your browser:
(If you have any difficulty accessing that link, just visit www.youtube.com and do a search for “Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco”–you can become a subscriber to our channel too!)
We are also active on social media. Please click the links on this page to find us.

WE ALSO CONTINUE TO OFFER THE FOLLOWING…
On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, we hold a Daily Word/guided meditation at noon. This lasts for 15 minutes and is always held at the same link listed above and below (again, you will need the passcode–941321–to enter):
During this time in which we aren’t inhabiting our church walls, please remember that each one of us IS the church, and reach out to those who might like a comforting email or phone call.
Together, we can stay connected as a community and emerge from this shelter-in-place with an even stronger connection to each other!
We in Unity know how important our consciousness is and have a host of wonderful spiritual tools and practices that we can draw upon during these uncertain days to keep us connected to Spirit and to help us choose faith rather than fear. Unity is offering a number of wonderful resources on their website, which you’ll find here.
I want to leave you with this wonderful quote from Harriet Tubman:
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
Sending you an Ocean of Love and keeping you all in my prayers–knowing that the Love of God enfolds you–and looking forward to seeing you at the service and Annual Meeting on Sunday.
Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon
