You Are Unity! Let’s SEE You!
Each one of you spectacular beings makes up our Unity Community and we are all so blessed to be connected.
We have spent the last year celebrating our 20 years on Mudcut Road. Now we want to celebrate each one of you who are carrying the legacy of light and love forward.
We are taking down the History of Unity Bulletin Board that we had the chance to honor all year, and replacing it with pictures of YOU…the future of Unity.
Please bring in a picture of yourself, at any age, to be placed on the Bulletin Board. We are hoping to spark connection and communication, so pictures of you with those you love, doing what you love to do, at any phase of your life are welcome. WARNING: If you don’t bring a picture in, our Candid Camera will snap one of you, maybe when you least expect it 🙂
Do you like coffee? Do you like fellowship? Do you like to serve? Well, then… you are the PERFECT person to volunteer for our fourth Sunday Fellowship Hour!
We need a person, couple or team to set up and clean up on the fourth Sunday of the month (only). You will be trained and assisted to get started and helped to fill your spot if you can’t make it on your Sunday, so your commitment is easy to manage.
This is a great way to connect with others. If you are interested please see Jeff Fischer or Rev. Janice on Sunday. Thank you!
