Sunday, April 21, 11:15 a.m.-.1 p.m. — Our Sacred Healing Ministry offers individual Reiki sessions and quiet meditation on the third Sunday of each month. All are welcome.
Thursdays, September 6-November 8, 7-8:30 p.m. — Jerry and Rev. Sharon Peters lead a weekly book study of The Ten Commandments starting September 6 and continuing through early November. Written by renowned Unity mystic and meta-physician Emmet Fox, The Ten Commandments brings out the deeper meanings of the well known Christian commandments in a scientific yet spiritual way. The book explores the master key to life — and has been described as a universal guide to all that matters in making life more satisfying.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase ($13). Having a copy of the book is not required to participate in or benefit from the sessions — feel free to join the discussion to learn and share your perspectives.
A love offering will be taken each week to acknowledge the efforts of the leaders and help pay for the use of the church facilities.
Saturday, May 19, 1:30-3:30 p.m. —
Women of Unity offers an opportunity for women of the church to come together to encourage one another while getting to know each other in a place of acceptance. We meet the third Saturday of the month to share an interesting topic or activity, and we ask that people bring a small snack. Stop in and check the group out to see if it is something that will be of a benefit to you. Facilitated by E.A. (Beth) Sears. Hope to see you there!
We have coffee and light refreshments available Sundays at 11 a.m., immediately following all Sunday Services. We invite you to join us for this informal way to connect with friends old and new.
Sunday, March 18, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. — Church leaders will share details about the state of the church while giving everyone an opportunity to ask questions and get answers about their church. Active members will also be choosing new members for the Board of Trustees and the Board Nominating Committee at this meeting. While congregants who have not officially joined the church are not eligible to vote, they are welcome to attend.
Sunday, March 11, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. — We invite you to sit in the sacred space in the presence of meditative music to receive Reiki and/or similar healing services offered by trained practitioners. Reiki provides a nurturing to one’s self physically, mentally and emotionally – allowing for a balancing to homeostasis. Reiki does no harm and it offers a gentle positive energy to promote healing within our being. If you do not wish to receive a healing from one of our practitioners you are still welcome to share in the quiet meditation space in our sanctuary during this time.
Please join us every Wednesday, noon-12:30 p.m., for a time of meditation. Facilitated by Rev. Sandra Butler.
Bring lunch and share a meal together after meditation.
