Life is the ability to energize, vitalize, enliven, animate, and invigorate.
I am filled with life, sweet life!

Advent Study Group

December 15, & 22 at 9 am

Join a discussion group on Unity’s 2019 Advent booklet and topics around Christmas. Everyone is welcome on any or all of the Sundays.

This Sunday, December 15

Guest Speakers: Joshua & Mary Haun

Topic: Humanity

Joshua & Mary Haun
Join us this Sunday as our Youth and Family Ministry Co-Directors Mary and Joshua Haun share their views on how our humanity need not be seen as a problem impeding our spiritual growth. Rather, our humanity always points us back to our divinity... reminding us of the miracles ready to express in, through, and as us!

Joshua and Mary Haun began their spiritual journeys in 2013. Since that time Spirit has guided them to dig deep to heal their mind and excavate old ideas and beliefs, using their relationship as the foundation of their healing. They are devoted to God and use A Course in Miracles as their path to atonement.  Ordained as ACIM Ministers in 2015, Mary and Joshua are the co-founders of Living Prayer Ministries and currently serve as the directors of the Youth and Family Ministry at Unity Center of Cedar Rapids, IA.

Guest Musicians: UCR Spirit Choir

Hark, the herald!  Our angels sing!  Come listen to UCR’s very own choir of angels singing, with a special treat from the children.
