Unity Myrtle Beach Moves to New Location

Unity Myrtle Beach (UMB) (formerly Unity Christ Church) recently moved to a new permanent location at 6173 Salem Road, Myrtle Beach, located off of Highway 707, near St. James High School. UMB purchased this five-and-one-half-acre site three years ago and has been improving the property, setting up the office and holding some outdoor Sunday services, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are now working on plans for building a permanent structure on the property.

UMB was founded in 1986 under the leadership of their Founding Mother, Rev. Mary Ann
Finch, an ordained Unity minister. Formerly with the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church, Rev. Finch felt called to bring the message of Positive Spirituality and the teachings of Jesus through the lens of metaphysics and conscious awakening, as taught by the Unity movement, founded in 1889 by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore.

Rev. Margaret Hiller, Spiritual Leader of UMB since 2005, and the Unity congregation are grateful to have found the new property in the historic Burgess Community and look forward to being
good neighbors and an integral part of this significant area and its rich culture. Burgess is a 28-square-mile area, flanked on the west by the Waccamaw River and U.S. 17 Bypass to the east, and
was settled and farmed in the 1880s by formerly enslaved people.

Wherever one is on their spiritual journey, all are welcome at Unity. To learn more about Unity, consider attending a Sunday service, one of their classes or book groups or any of their ongoing activities and events.
