Change for Change 
Our Prosperity in Action Team has come up with a fun way for the entire congregation (even the kids) to participate in the hiring process of our new senior minster in a way that truly supports Unity Church of Overland Park through this time of change!
Change for Change 

What it is: To help cover the expenses of bringing three candidates in to try out for the senior minister position, the Prosperity in Action Team is implementing the "Change for Change" program.


How you do it: Pick up a "Change for Change" cup at church, and at the end of each day, put your change in the cup. Then on Sunday, bring your change with you and put it in the "Change for Change" bowl in the lobby. We will give you regular updates as to how much has been raised.  In fact, thus far we have raised $1111.80.


New opportunities to help: You may also now choose to fund a specific expense, such as a plane ticket, or hotel stay, or a breakfast or lunch. The Prosperity in Action Team has a list of specific expenses, both large and small, that you may now pledge to take care of on behalf of our spiritual community.  Just speak with one of the PiA team members in the lobby after services.
Be the Change

7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Thursdays, August 1, 8, 22 & 29

With Rev. Robin Ferguson


This class will explore the dynamics of change and transformation and the awareness that comes from consciously moving through life with intention. We will focus on gaining greater self awareness and group awareness around the idea of change and how we can respond with grace rather than react with resistance. This will be an experiential class that will invite you into a deeper relationship with your life and also offer you practical tools to move through transformative times with greater ease and grace.

 In the Presence Meditation

7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 16

with Debra Baker

In the Presence
This meditation provides the opportunity to go into a deep, deep experience of the Presence. Meditation does wonderful things to our human bodies, giving them vital time to revitalize and heal themselves. At the same time, our souls experience their real, true selves, going to the place inside that is timeless and eternal. After the meditation, there will be a sacred prayer circle to share and honor one another's prayer intentions. You'll experience such serenity you won't want it to end.


Suggested Love Offering: $10
