Unity Spiritual Center of Lansing is a spiritual tithing community.

This means we donate 10% of all income to sources of our spiritual inspiration as a way of acknowledging that God is our one and only Source which comes to us through many channels. 

We tithe to various Unity organizations – Silent Unity, Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute, Unity Worldwide Ministries, Great Lakes Region of Unity Churches and sometimes to specific Unity churches. 

We also tithe to organizations that bless and inspire us with their work.  We call this Congregants' Choice.  You nominate local charitable organizations that bless, inspire, and have a meaningful impact on you which supports you in your spiritual awakening.  Every choice has gifted us even more than we have gifted them.  We have tremendous love and dedication in the Lansing community, continually striving to support one another.
