What Happened to the Congregation?
We received many expressions of concern over what happened to the remaining congregation of the Unity Church of Alhambra when the church building was sold and our transformation into a Foundation took place.
The remaining active members held a marvelous Sunday celebration ceremony on March 14, 2004.
"We were overjoyed to see many of our past members, and together we shared wonderful memories of Unity friends, ministers, and history of the church. The building was blessed and released, acknowledging the consciousness of the thousands of people who have come through the doors of the church over the previous 52 years."
Most of the congregation has moved on to other nearby Unity churches, or now attend other local churches in the area. "Our fixtures, furniture, and books were lovingly shared with active members and Unity Churches in Brea, Las Vegas, Pomona, and Torrance, on a love-offering basis."
The new church property owner was the Mandarin Baptist church, which has a large sanctuary and school close by, and used the property in their expansion.
