In respect of the contagious nature of the Corono 12 Virus, we will refrain from meeting in person for the month as long as Michigan's "Stay at Home" orders are in place. Meanwhile, considering watching one of our Youtube videos, join an on-line class, or participate in safe but new ways that we are even now co-creating.
Once the world has regained a new balance of health and wholeness, we will again be meeting as posted below:
Join us on Sundays at 10:30am...
for our one-hour celebration service full of music, uplifting and thought-provoking messages and a group of welcoming and affirming people.

What should I wear?
We're more concerned with meeting your real life needs and blessing you for the coming week. So whether you dress casually or come in a dress or a tie, you'll fit right in.
We have a very diverse community! We're proud that our spiritual community includes everyone, regardless of any cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation, social norms, nationalities or faith of origin. On any given Sunday, you can expect our attendance to be 70+.
What's available for my kids?
Our Youth and Family Ministry is holding the space for young people to become part of our dynamic program for our youth. The 4th Sunday of each month, we have a special program for the Youth which meets during the Celebration Service (kids start with their parents in the sanctuary and then we bless them as they go off to the their classrooms.) On other Sunday, all ages are welcomed into our Sunday Services. There are "Quiet Activity Bags" available. as well as TV trays kids can use to color and do quiet games. We do ask that children under 12 not be left alone in the lower level unless they have a responsible person with them for safety.
What are the services like?
LIGHT, JOYFUL AND UPLIFTING! Loving, self-affirming, and practical messages help you to deal with real issues. People have often said, "Those words were just what I needed to hear!"
What about parking?
We have parking right next to the building,as well as on-street parking. People also use the Sparrow Hospital parking located off of Michigan at Holmes, one block from the church.
Are you handicap-accessible?
We currently have stairs from the outside to the sanctuary. We are in the midst of a renovation of our current building to become accessible to everyone. Watch our weekly email for updates. Our Listening Assistance Devices to aid the hearing-impaired are available from any usher. We offer ASL during the service.
Is Unity an open and affirming denomination and is Unity Spiritual Center of Lansing an open and affirming congregation?
Yes and yes. A number of the members of the congregation are part of the LGBTQ community. It is actually part of our bylaws that all members agree to a broad diversity statement in order to be a member. Open and affirming extends far beyond the LGBT community to inclide open and affirming to the many diverse and rich expressions of the human condition - racial, physical abilities and different abilities, economic, relationship status, age, religious background, political affilitations.
