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).
“Crafting Love” Named One of the Best Spiritual Books of 2019

Rev. Maggie’s hour-long radio show, “Creative Spirit: Connecting Art and Soul,” has been archived here, and you also can download previous shows on iTunes.
Live Zoom Sunday Service on November 29, at 11 a.m.,
Followed by a Live Zoom Fellowship Meeting…
Dear USC Family,
As you know by now, at the Zoom Town Hall Meeting, the Board and I announced that in order to ensure the health and safety of our beloved community, we have made the decision to meet virtually on Zoom until the beginning of the year–our 75th anniversary year!
To make it easier for us to connect, we have gone back to using the same URL for every event (except fundraisers like our upcoming USC Concert on December 6). The events will still require you to enter through a waiting room, and to type in a passcode. Here is the link for every service, 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. Everyone is invited to join us!
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 close to 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, I am holding a Daily Word/guided meditation. 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!
A Special USC Fundraising Concert:
“Music and Merriment”
Featuring Karen Drucker, Patrick Meier, Glenn Waters, Deborah Winters and USC’s own Michael Hatfield.
Sunday, December 6
12:30 to 2 p.m.
Live on Zoom!
We’re having a party–a musical party, that is, to raise funds for our beloved USC! We are selling tickets at the following levels: $25, $50, $75, $100, $200, and $250…just pick your price, and use our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) to send your money through PayPal.com. When you register, you will receive the special Zoom link that will allow you access to this fun and festive concert! Tell your friends and family–this is open to the public…and not only will it be a good time for all, you’ll also be doing good for the church, too!
A TWO-PART ART WORKSHOP:
An Advent SoulCollage(r) Journey
Saturdays, December 5 and 12
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Live on Zoom!
$35 for both sessions
Rev. Maggie has spent some of this time during sheltering-in-place to become an official SoulCollage(r) facilitator, and is excited to introduce this art-making method to USC. SoulCollage(r) is a fascinating way to access one’s inner wisdom by making individualized cards that become part of a personal deck–and no previous art experience is required. For Advent, we will be focusing on the themes of Hope, Peace, Love and Joy to close out this challenging year! The fee for attending the class is $35 for both sessions, which includes materials that Rev. Maggie will mail to you. You can register by sending a check made out to Rev. Maggie to the church, or pay through PayPal (contact Rev. Maggie for the email address to use)–all registrations must be receive by Monday, November 30, so that Rev. Maggie can send out your materials kit.
NEW ONLINE CLASS ON PROSPERITY
Facilitated by USC’s Terri Wade
Tuesdays through December 8

End the year strong with this fun, inspirational class facilitated by USC’s Terri Wade. You’ll be studying The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity: A Simple Guide to Unlimited Abundance by Edwene Gaines. Just log in using our USC Zoom link:
entering our passcode 941321, and learn spiritual principles that will enrich every area of your life!
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.
In this Thanksgiving week of 2020, a year that has held events that have been unprecedented in many ways, I want to leave you with a link to an article that gives some good ideas on how to keep gratitude alive during this time of pandemic…and offers reasons about why we should try to keep stoking those feelings. You can access the article by typing the following URL in your browser, or by clicking here:
Know that you–yes, you!–make a difference to Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco, and that we each are grateful for the part you play in our spiritual community. May you know what a blessing you are to our world this Thanksgiving week, and may you and your beloveds be deeply blessed always.
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 our live service and fellowship hour on Sunday.
Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon
