To inspire and foster spiritual growth in one another and in the community.

Unity Center of Reno prides itself in our strong commitment to serving our community in partnering with local organizations that support others that are less fortunate. Throughout the year we organize to raise funds and collect goods to help meet those needs.

Reaching out to the community and serving others inspires spiritual growth in those that are serving as well as receiving. As we foster love in action this often brings a new awareness, healing within, and a purpose to our lives.

Unity Center’s Outreach program meets the first Sunday of each month after Sunday service. If you would love to serve in this program and have ideas on how to serve contact Barbara Williamson at 775-527-2850 or barbbw@charter.net
