History during Covid

April 4th, 2021 Sunday Celebration Service live streamed  https://venue.streamspot.com/a92da340

March 22nd, 2021 UPDATE:  Due to the rising virus rates as well as the delay in obtaining an occupancy permit from the Delhi Township, in person meetings are still suspended at this time.  Services will be recorded and eventually lived streamed from our new location without a congregation present.

January 30th, 2021 UPDATE: The Board of Trustees met the end of January.  Current indicators are that we will be meeting our 5 criteria to begin meeting again in-person in the near future.  We have an aspiration of holding our first live Sunday Service at our new property on Easter, April 4th based on our current trends continuing.

  1. Multiple weeks in reduction of infections
  2. Adequate testing
  3. Sufficient personal protective equipment available
  4. Contact tracing programs in place throughout the country/state
  5. A widely available vaccine and/or effective treatment -

November 30th, 2020 UPDATE: The Board of Trustees and Leadership Council met Monday, Nov. 30th to update our course of action to safely maintain our church life as we navigate the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the midst of uncertainty and in consideration of the safety of the congregation and employees and the recommendation of our Celebration Team, it is the Board of Trustees’ decision that

  1. “Unity Spiritual Center of Lansing” will not hold any in-person Sunday Services, classes, meetings, or groups through the end of March , 2021.  Office hours will be by appointment only.”

We believe that good science, coupled with our seven Unity Core Values, must be the basis upon which we make decisions about in-person gatherings.

  • Inclusivity: Our abiding care and concern for the most vulnerable, inside and outside our congregation.
  • Stewardship and Integrity: Recognition that we are part of an interdependent web and, as such, our risk-taking and our protective actions affect far more than just ourselves.
  • Spiritual Awakening, Joy, Prayer, and Freedom are values which we can uphold and practice without gathering in-person.
  1. The five criteria we will use to determine when we can begin meeting in person again:
  1. Multiple weeks in reduction of infections
  2. Adequate testing
  3. Sufficient personal protective equipment available
  4. Contact tracing programs in place throughout the country/state
  5. A widely available vaccine and/or effective treatment - we are estimating it will be a number of months until this is available.


  1. Unity Spiritual Center of Lansing will continue to offer virtual Sunday Spiritual Experiences. The Celebration Tearm is exploring options to offer the equivalent of “live-format” weekly services which would include our Unity band but we have not yet found a safe way to do this.  Unity will also continue to offer classes and small groups on zoom and other appropriate virtual gatherings sites.


Thank you for your continued loving support and enthusiastic participation in our Unity community.
