Hands & Flames
Fall Religious Education is in Full Swing!

Our youth are enthusiastically exploring interpretations of the spirit and the mystery that some people call God in our Spirit Play classroom. These stories are adaptations that come from many places, including religious texts and folk tales.

Assistance is always needed in our Religious Education classroom
If you would like to join in on the fun, please let Deanna Greenstein, Coordinator of Religious Education, know!

All students must have an updated registration form. If you have not filled one out, please see Deanna for one.

All adults volunteering with youth must have a current CORI form on file. If you have not yet filled one out this year, please see Deanna.

Updates from Fellowship

Everyone is a Greeter: Although we schedule two people to be greeters for every Sunday service, we hope that everyone present considers themselves an integral part of our greeting team.  Remember to say hello to visitors and offer to show them the way to Social Hour. Social hour can be as intriguing as our worship service and we want to share that experience also. 

Greening Social Hour: Several members are encouraging everyone to help reduce our use of disposable coffee cups by instead using ceramic coffee cups. Feel free to bring a coffee cup of your own or one to add to the our small shared collection.  Enjoy some fellowship over washing some dishes! Hop in the kitchen and wash a couple mugs before you leave.

Social Hour: Thank you to all who have signed up to host Social Hour after our Sunday services. For all who enjoy this time of snacks and conversation, please remember to drop some money into the social hour fund basket near the coffee pot, to pay for the paper products, juice, coffee and creamer.

Name Tags: We are trying yet another way to organize Name Tags. Feel free to take your name tag home with you and remember to bring it with you to Unity. There is also an alphabetical box at the back of the sanctuary if you'd rather leave it there. If you have never had a name tag and would like one, please mention it to a Greeter. If you forget your name tag, we will have blank ones at the back of the sanctuary that you may use occasionally. 
Mark Your Calendars
  • Halloween Party and Trunk or Treat: Friday October 23, 2015 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.

"Like hope, trust, and love, gratitude is both a feeling and a spiritual practice."
- Christine C. Robinson, Alicia Hawkins

We are grateful for all who contribute to our Unity Church community, those before us in a Sunday service and those unseen whose presence is a service for all.
