Rev. Richard often speaks of rubber-meets-the-road spirituality. We are focused on raising $2.1 million. We would pay off the mortgage, create a fund for building repairs, and enable increased investment in key programs aligned with our Core Intentions.
If your decision is to Love It, we are asking that you fill out a secure online pledge form so that we can anticipate your commitment. You may also call the office or fill out one of the hard copy pledge forms available on Sundays. We ask that you finalize your pledges by October 1.

Answered Questions from August 6 and 13
What do you mean by “Love It or List It?”
- For many years Unity North has managed her finances well but continues to have high facility expenses. With our 20th birthday quickly approaching, our building and grounds are beginning to feel their age. Your Board of Directors and Finance Committee have been brainstorming solutions. Two presentations have been made to the members.
Are you selling the property?
- At this time, we are simply presenting all options to the Membership. As a Board, we have not made any decisions nor do we wish to influence our Membership in any way. This is a time for thoughtful conversation about the future of our facility.
- We recently replaced an HVAC unit at the cost of about $21,000. The roof needs replacement and there are 16 other HVAC units that have been repaired or will need repair or replacement in the coming years. While we do have savings, and we have a Legacy Giving program, we can no longer live “paycheck to paycheck” knowing that the building will continue to age.
