Hello and welcome! Abundant Life Spiritual Center is a dynamic spiritual community affiliated with Unity Worldwide Ministries. Our focus on awakening those who walk through our doors to the divine within and inspiring them to live confidently, passionately and powerfully. Together we learn how to Live Fearlessly and Love Outrageously because life is meant to be filled with joy and lived with ease as a positive experience, not a struggle. We named ourselves Abundant Life because we know that the Abundant Life - a life of wholeness and authentic self-expression, purpose, creativity and love - is the divine birthright of everyone and we want to support your living it.

There are many ways to experience the Divine in community. At Abundant Life Spiritual Center, you will find our Sunday services are upbeat and celebratory as well as contemplative and meaningful. Our music is contemporary and our minister's message is always thought-provoking, practical and inspiring. People who walk through our doors almost always comment on the loving energy they feel. We've even been told that our energy is at a palpably higher vibration than many much larger spiritual communities. Everyone leaves feeling good and equipped for the week to come.

A special event commemorating our five-year anniversary will be held on Saturday, October 3rd from 6-9 pm at The Patty Turner Center, 375 Elm Street Deerfield, Illinois. At this event we will celebrate the many lives that have been transformed because of our center, and the beginning of an exciting new chapter in our unfoldment. Dinner will be catered by Maggianos. Wine will be available for purchase. Musical entertainment will be provided by our band, The Grateful Living, which will perform a selection of their most popular and engaging pop/classic rock/indie performance songs.
The theme of Unity's 2015 World Day of Prayer is "Pray Up Your Life - Pray Up the World." Our participation in Unity World Day of Prayer will begin with a contemplative sacred service at 7 pm on Wednesday, September 9 at the Patty Turner Center. This service will launch our 24-hour prayer vigil as we join with Unity ministries across the globe in prayer. We are also commemorating 125 years of Silent Unity during this event.
Every year at Abundant Life Spiritual Center we hold a Spiritual Education and Enrichment (SEE) class for Unity credit. This year our class is Lessons in Truth. This SEE core class is an exploration of Unity’s oldest book, Lessons in Truth, first published in 1903, by H. Emilie Cady, homeopathic doctor and New Thought metaphysician. As Ernest Wilson put it, “Next to the Bible itself, Dr. Cady’s Lessons in Truth is Unity’s primary textbook.”
Our men's group will resume on Sunday, September 20. This group meets every third Sunday of the month at 9:00 a.m. prior to our Sunday service. It's a great place for men to be in spiritual community together and receive support for the joys and challenges in their lives. All men in our community are invited as well as any men outside our community who may be interested. The group is facilitated by Jonathan Nicholas
