He’s had no shortage of life-changing experiences himself so be ready for a powerful talk!

He’s certified to teach Mental Health First Aid. And completed United Nations’ Humanitarian Aid courses; Harvard University’s Building a Better Response course; Richard Rohr’s Living School; and walked El Camino Santiago.
In-Person & Livestreaming on UnityCentralOregon.org
We are delighted to offer you the option of in-person service or Live-streaming on our website using Zoom! You can watch even if you don’t have a Zoom account (you don’t even have to fix your hair!). It will also be available as a recording in the video library on our website and on Facebook later that day.
Masks are no longer required at our in-person service. We encourage those that still feel more comfortable wearing a mask to continue to do so. Whatever feels right for you is the choice we encourage you to go with. 😊😷
Reminder – Bring a Snack to Share on Sunday
We love it when our community stays to connect and chat after service. We encourage you to bring in a bag of crackers, fruit, granola bars, or dip to share. We’ll provide the coffee and tea!

Prosperity Potluck with Rev. Jane
Thursday, July 28th at 6pm in the Unity foyer
This is a 7 week series that begins this week. You can RSVP for just one, all, or anything in between.
These classes are free but we encourage donations! RSVP HERE.
Creating a life by design is not accidental. At these potlucks, we will gather in community to share a meal and to learn the principles (based on the work of Gay Hendricks and Unity teachings) that will turn our lives into masterpieces of delight and blessing fields that benefit one and all.
Given summertime, and the travels that go with it, we ask you to commit each week, rather than for the whole series, as the seating in our foyer is limited. This is a chance to get to know others in the community (and invite friends who may not come Sunday), eat good food, and learn powerful spiritual principles that will allow you to create a more prosperous life. Please bring a healthy dish to share!
Topic for this week (week 2)- The Laws of Unconscious Attraction and Conscious Creation

This week we’d like to give a shout-out to Ande Cardwell. Ande has been instrumental over the past year in coordinating opportunities for Unity members to help local non-profits. This past Saturday the group she organized prepared and served lunch at Family Kitchen. We have a regular team that helps on the 4th Saturday of every other month, but are in need of a few more people since there are a lot of lunches to make! If you’re interested in joining us, or want to let Andee know about another organization that needs help you can contact her at . It feels so good to give and live our Unity principles! Thank you, Ande for being instrumental in making these opportunities happen. You are appreciated 💖.
