Invitation to Sunday’s talk, with Katie Schmidt

Finding the Complete You with Gen Z

with Katie Schmidt

This talk is a discussion about finding balance between your feminine and masculine side. It will also dive into how to explore your identity and break social norms!

Katie is a Gen Z representative of our Unity community who gave a fabulous talk a few months ago and we are excited to welcome her back. Gen Z’ers have a voice we need to hear and we’re proud to offer a space for this generation to share and be heard.

No need to bring food to share this week since the auction will take place following service and there will be a catered buffet provided!

Childcare and activities available

Open to for children 0 through 12 years.

Wear Your Prosperity Coffee Table Book by Genesis Ilada

This book project was the brainchild of member Genesis Ilada after participating in a Unity prosperity class. Genesis is a professional makeup artist, designer, and photographer and wanted to use her skills to feature images of Unity ministers and members along with their stories of prosperity to raise funds for our community. The end result is a beautiful coffee table book now available for purchase. Genesis says, “The book’s purpose is to share our individual Prosperity story and what it means to be prosperous. It highlights our deep connection with Mother Nature through promoting positive tourism in Bend by photographing our members in city and state parks.” The book is priced at $88 and you may add more as a donation.

You can view the beautiful book in the Unity foyer.

Happening Later in March…

Member Appreciation

Rev. Jane Hiatt

Our beloved Rev. Jane will be going on a 6 week sabbatical starting next week, so let’s wish her a relaxing time off. Jane stepped up to help with many of my weekly tasks so Kevin and I (Clare) we were able to relax and recoup on our recent trip 6 weeks trip to Thailand. Now’s my time to do the same for her 😁. If you need anything during Jane’s time off feel free to reach out to me and I’ll see if I can help or let you know who can. We’ll miss you Jane!!
