What happens at a service?
The Contemplative Service is a quieter, more meditative service.
 
Our Sunday Celebration Services are powerful, positive and fun! You’ll experience great music, friendly people, and the practical messages you hear will help you deal with the real-life issues you face during the week.
 
We celebrate God in an inclusive, loving and inspiring environment. Come and feel the joy of Spirit moving and flowing through you.
 
We request that our sanctuary is respected by not bringing food and beverages into the Sanctuary. Water is acceptable. Feel free to partake of food and drink in the Fellowship Hall before and after services, meetings and/or classes.
 
How do I meet people?
After every Sunday service we have fellowship with coffee, tea and snacks. We invite you to join us so we can get to know you and let you know other ways to meet great people and participate in meaningful ways.
 
What do I wear?
Unity of Syracuse is a welcoming place with a casual environment where you can come as you are. Most of us will be dressed casually.
 
What denomination are you?
Unity of Syracuse is trans-denominational. We embrace all spiritual teachings based on the teachings of Jesus. To those seeking spiritual growth, Unity offers a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity. It is viewed as a movement in consciousness, rather than as a religion.
 
Unity is without creed or dogma, has no formal liturgy and recognizes no sacrament. Unity is where we ask questions, not give answers. We believe the answer to every challenge lies within the heart and mind of each individual. Our emphasis is not on the demands of a personality, institution or religion... it is on spiritual transformation. Unity centers and churches represent diversity of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability and sexual orientation.
 
I have children; do you have activities for them during your services?
Starting at 11 a.m., our Children’s Church serves children from Nursery through 12th grade.
 
The first Sunday of each month is a “Family Celebration Service,” which means that all the children are in the sanctuary. This allows them to participate and serve by assisting with parts of the service. 
We are pleased that our entire congregation is able to worship together.
 
How can I learn more?
Read About Us and What Is Unity? for starters; then, if you want to know more, explore the other pages on this website. You can experience part of our Sunday service, the minister's message, by listening online.
 
How do I get involved?
There are many ways to get connected with Unity of Syracuse’s community. You can take one of the many classes or workshops, join one of our small groups or volunteer in one of our Service Ministries and Teams; please check the Calendar to find out what's happening this month and/or sign up for our weekly mailer (just enter your email address in the box on the homepage of this site).  Volunteer opportunities within one of our community teams offer meaningful service with others who share your interests.
 
Stop in during office hours, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday and Friday. Feel free to approach any of our leaders on Sundays with questions or concerns, as they are here to serve you.
 
MEMBERSHIP

Unity is a trans-denominational philosophy that finds its roots in all spiritual teachings but particularly those of Jesus.
 
It is sometimes called “practical Christianity” because we teach spiritual principles that apply to everyday living.
 
We honor the sacred Truth contained at the heart of all major religions. 
 
We teach oneness with God and with all God’s children.
