Notes From the President


Dear Members & Friends of Unity Church,


The budget meetings continue!


The members of Unity Church agreed at the recent annual meeting that the Finance Committee would hold three "unofficial" gatherings at which members of the church could help formulate a plan to bring our aspirations in line with our budget constraints.


The final meeting will be held on Thursday August 2 at 7:15 pm, and recap prior discussions to formulate a sense of the congregation to present to the executive body for further deliberation and action.


If you will need child care during this meeting, please remember to contact Cheryl Brigante at no later than Tuesday, July 31.

Hope to see you next week!

 School on Wheels Gets A Boost from Unity
SOWMA Support Cropped
L to R: Victoria Gold, Shannon Pender, and Michael Gold
With the stunning reality that the average age of a homeless person in Massachusetts is 8 years old, Shannon Pender held a school supply drive in support of School on Wheels of Massachusetts earlier this year for her Coming of Age project.  
Shannon took a couple of helpers, Michael and Victoria Gold, to deliver over $600 worth of supplies collected from the Unity Church congregation during the drive. Michael, Victoria, and Shannon then stayed an hour more to help fill backpacks for the upcoming school year. A real labor of love.

Woman Reading the News  Publishing Date Changes for August

Because even the news editor needs a vacation, the Unity News article submission and Unity News publishing dates will change slightly for the month of August.

Unity News will be published on the third and fifth Fridays in August (August 17 and 31). That means that articles for these editions should be submitted no later than the Tuesdays before, on August 14 and 28 respectively.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Cathy Adler at 508-243-6679 or

Our Summer Services

This summer Unity Church has something new! We have seven Sundays without Rev. Tess, and we have seven principles. This was too perfect a match to pass up, so during this summer let's celebrate our Seven Principles.

The Worship Committee is so excited to try this more intimate, slightly shorter, hopefully cooler, Sunday Worship with you! This is a great way to become more familiar with the principles if you are new to our Faith, or to return to the roots if you've been here a while.


How will it work? Click here to read more...
