Our Mission is to be a continual source of nourishment for the increase of spiritual awareness by providing support and encouragement to the people of the community for the increase of peace and harmony in their lives and to encourage the people who come to this center to collectively join together to further the peace and harmony in the world.

Our 2015 Capital Campaign  is being launched via a Volunteer Orientation Meeting (VOM) on Sunday, February 1, at 11:30am - Noon in Temple Space and then Noon - 1:00pm in the Sanctuary. At that meeting, POETYC Volunteer Teams will form in the areas of Prayer, Outreach, Events, Thanks, Youth/Children, and Communications to support our campaign efforts. These teams are open to all. Check out the POETYC TEAMS tab to learn more about those teams. You can join even if you can't make the Feb 1 meeting!

Unity Temple recently conducted a  FEASIBILITY STUDY, which showed overwhelming support for both the existing Temple ministry leadership and for a capital campaign. Having received a final report of the study and discussing it a length at its August 19, 2014 meeting, the Board of Directors unanimously approved a capital campaign.  The campaign management team was formed thereafter and is joyously rolling out this 2015 campaign to REVIVE the ~ 65-year-old Temple building so that this ministry can continue to serve its members and the community for decades to come.

Turn the Page KC is supported by seven AmeriCorps VISTA service members.  Each of these VISTAs work with elementary schools to do whatever they can to help increase the percentage of students reading at grade level by 3rd grade.  By helping students build home libraries, we equip them with fun books to read.

Please consider donating children's books as long as they are in good condition, We could also take adult novels, biography's, non-fiction etc, etc and we would sell them for cheap to buy more children's books.  

Please drop your books off at the bookstore or at the youth education department.
