7:00 to 9:00 pm
Facilitated by: Greg Barrette, Senior Minister

This advanced seven week course in building a new consciousness and acceptance of abundance begins on Tuesday, October 14th at 7:00pm and is facilitated by Greg. You will profoundly alter your experience of life’s abundance and awareness of your own highest potential. 

Keys to the Kingdom will help you identify and change any limited beliefs you have about abundance, happiness and success. This is not a course about simply getting more money or material things; it is actually a guide to developing a higher level of spiritual awareness.

Learn Unity's prosperity principles and challenge yourself. One of those principles is tithing (giving 1/10th of all you receive to where you are spiritually nourished.) Tithing is required to participate. In order to give yourself permission to test it out, we will return all that you tithed during these weeks if you are not satisfied. Tithing does work and that's our guarantee!!
