We offer positive, spiritual, non-denominational ceremonies and a peaceful environment for a reasonable price. Unity honors all spiritual and religious paths. We attract many couples who do not have a regular church home or for some reason cannot be married in their own church.

You do not have to be a member of our church to get married here. You can bring your own minister or use one of our ministers, who provide positive, contemporary and spiritually rich ceremonies created especially for each couple.

We celebrate, with you, the love that is calling you to dedicate your lives anew as a couple. Call us if we can be of service to you. Please call our office at 540 562-2200, ext. 10, for more information.

Christenings
Christening is an ancient ritual that predates even the earliest Christian traditions. The rite and the interpretation of its meaning have undergone many changes over time, and today christening is practiced in many different ways. The purpose of Christening is to recognize the spiritual identity and purpose of a soul. In Unity, we look to the example of Jesus as our guide.

mother and childIn Mark 10: 13-16 we read that Jesus took children in his arms and blessed them.

Christening in Unity is the act of welcoming a child into our world and recognizing this soul by name in its human journey. It is a time for parents to dedicate themselves to raising their child in an awareness of God’s loving presence.

Godparents ~ You may choose as many people as you wish, or have no Godparents. There is no legal obligation or responsibility made through a Christening service.

Spiritual Baptisms ~ For children and adults, we also provide a baptism service.

At the time of the passing of a loved one, many people want a service and don’t know where to turn. We are here to support people in times of grief and loss. We can provide services at the location of your choice. Our services are positive, uplifting celebrations of the life lived. We honor each person’s spiritual traditions.

Home Blessings
A private home blessing ceremony acknowledges and honors your home as sacred space, a sanctuary of love, peace and joy. Many people request a home blessing as they settle into a new home or apartment, but a home blessing ceremony is appropriate at any time, whether you have just moved in or have lived in your home for many years.
