Weddings, christenings, memorial services, and more… all are among the ways we can support you in your desire to recognize and celebrate the spiritual dimensions of the passages in your life and the lives of your loved ones.
We can help make one of the most important days of your life even more meaningful. Unity is a place where people of all faiths and gender identity may be married. Our minister officiates at weddings in many locations. You may choose to have your wedding in our sanctuary or garden, at another outdoor garden, in your favorite hotel, at home, or another special place.
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. Here at Unity Church of Anderson, we call this ceremony a “spiritual baptism.”
Christening is the act of welcoming a child into our world and recognizing this soul by name in its human journey. The spiritual baptism gives parents an opportunity to formally 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 can also be performed for children and adults.
In Unity, we call these services celebrations of life. Each service is crafted around the details of the loved one’s life. 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 in our sanctuary or at the location of your choice. Our services are positive, uplifting celebrations of the life lived. We honor each person’s spiritual traditions.
