January's Divine Faculty is Faith

Faith is the ability to believe, intuit, and perceive.
Faith blesses my day and paves my way!

Sunday January 5

Lessons in Truth at 9 am

Sacred Grounds & Books

Lessons In Truth
Join us as we study Lessons in Truth in 2020. This classic Unity text by H. Emilie Cady is a course of twelve lessons in practical Christianity. Books are available in the UnityCR Sacred Grounds and Books. Each month we will explore a "lesson" - some of which include Statement of Being, Thinking, Affirmations, Faith, Spiritual Understanding, and Spiritual Gifts.

At 10 am Rev. Debra Williams
"New Beginnings"

Rev. Debra WilliamsTS Eliot wrote, “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice.” As we begin the New Year, an opportunity to write a new life story is set before us—one that announces the infinite possibilities within God’s intention for our lives and for UCR.  Come, learn how to find your voice and create the life you are meant to live.

Tithe Team

We're looking for two or three people to research local charities and make recommendations to the board for where our local tithes for 2020 might go.  The research will include who the charity serves, how they align with Unity’s mission, what portion of their income goes to programming, and other criteria. See Laura Meade or any other board member if you're interested in being on this team. You cannot be affiliated with a potential recipient to serve on the team. Once the team is in place, it will accept suggestions of various local nonprofit organizations to consider.


Team lead –  Frank Niedermayer
This team, on a rotating basis, welcomes people to UCR on Sunday mornings and occasionally for a special event, like a memorial service.  They also serve as ushers during the service. It’s a great way to meet people with very little time commitment (you’ll be at UCR anyway!). Right now, there are openings for the 1st Sunday of the month, the 3rd Sunday of the month, and the 5th Sunday (March, May, August, November).  See Frank if you want to sign up or get more information.
