A Positive Path

     for Spiritual Living

   Spiritual Social Action                   

Unity's 5th principle states that it is not enough to understand the spiritual teachings, we must take action. Listed here are some of the ways in which Unity of Olympia is furthering its mission and applying this principle through Spiritual Social Action. 

There are many ways you can support our spiritual community and help make it possible for us to support these and other charities. Donations of time, talents and treasure are all needed to help our community thrive. Contact our Unity Services Coordinator to learn more.

Abundant Sundays

We believe in an abundant universe and therefore we are a prosperous community. Part of being prosperous is the amazing gift of giving to our community. Whenever a month has five Sundays we give a gift to a charity organization above and beyond our full 10% tithe. We do this with great pleasure!

If you have a favorite non-profit that you’d like to see Unity of Olympia support, please send an email to Rev. Terry Murray and she’ll take your recommendation to the Finance Team. 

Friendly Water for the World

The mission of Friendly Water for the World is to expand access to low-cost clean water technologies and information about health and sanitation to people who lack these necessities for life. We provide opportunities to partner with individuals and communities working to improve living conditions around the world, and to learn from each other. In the past decade, more people around the world have died from waterborne illnesses than from all wars combined. The toll is greatest among children and families. Lack of access to clean water reduces community productivity, renders education efforts ineffective, and strains already inadequate health care resources. Facing constant sickness and threat, families cannot plan to improve their lives. They are disempowered. We hope you will join with us to support Friendly Water for the World!

Thurston County Food Project
