Featured Events
SpiritGroups
Consist of small groups of people who meet weekly to connect with one another while exploring a spiritual topic or theme.

Our new SPIRITGROUP SERIES will begin week four on Sunday, May 2. The series is based on the Unity Classic, DISCOVER THE POWER WITHIN YOU, by Eric Butterworth. Oprah Winfrey count's this book as one of her favorites. This 7-week series features guided sessions led by Unity of Houston minister Michael Gott. In addition, the Sunday Lessons will draw on the weekly topic from the group discussions. View an introductory video about this week's topic on our SpiritGroups page.

Community News
Community In-Reach

As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic and the consequences of social distancing, members of our community are dealing certain hardships. Consequently, our in-reach team is offering their assistance. If you or someone you know could use a little assistance, please fill out our contact form. If you are willing to serve as a volunteer for our in-reach team, please contact our team coordinator Sandy at 208-964-4084.

Community Garden

​If you like to garden but do not have the space at home, we have plots available. You can acquire one or more for the season for the low cost of $35 per plot. The fee covers the cost of supplying water for our drip irrigation system. Since this is a COMMUNITY garden, please invite your friends and neighbors to participate. Plots are offered on a first come first serve basis. To reserve plots, call Audra at 208-667-7300 or Jerilyn at 208-664-1125.

START USING BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSHES
It should come as no surprise that plastic toothbrushes are not recyclable. Fortunately, there is a safer alternative. Toothbrushes made with bamboo handles reduce plastic waste. Bamboo is considered a renewable and sustainable plant. In addition, it does not require any pesticides, fertilizers, or additional irrigation to grow. Consequently, growing and harvesting bamboo is a carbon neutral process from start to finish. So, check out the many options available and get yourself some.

Join the Mowing Team

We are assembling a team of volunteers to help mow the Unity grounds during the summer months. With a team, this work can be assigned on a rotating schedule, so we won't have to burden a single individual. We have riding mowers, an electric push mower, and an edge trimmer to make this work as easy as possible. Let Jerilyn know if you can help.
Unity Food Pantry

After much consideration, we are shifting our approach to the Community Food Pantry. Rather than hosting one here at Unity, we are partnering with Parker Subaru to provide free food via their 24-hour public pantry on Government Way and Clayton. This existing resource is better located and is restocked daily. In addition, Parker Subaru has staff on hand to maintain it. We will assist them by supplying unexpired, non-perishable food items to keep it stocked. You can bring your food donations to Unity, and we will deliver them to Parker Toyota. There are more details on our website.
 
Other Happenings
A Course in Miracles, Men's Group, and the Spiritual Evolution Group meet regularly under prescribed safety protocols. During the spring and summer months, as weather permits groups are holding meetings outside. If you have questions about the status of a group, contact us and we will help you connect with the appropriate group facilitator.
