Invitation to Sunday’s talk, with Rev. Kelly Billings

Thriving or Surviving?

with Rev. Kelly Billings

What’s often served us in the past to help us survive, might be different from what we need to thrive. We’ll consider things that have served, but now might be preventing us from going forward and growing spiritually. We’ll look at honoring them, releasing them, and exploring a path forward in our spiritual growth.


Bring a favorite snack item to share with the community after service! We’ll provide the coffee and tea ☕️.

Childcare and activities are available for children 0 through 12 years 🌈. We are in need of youth volunteers to help. Contact Clare –  

Sunday Morning Meditation – Every Sunday, 9:00 to 9:45 AM (Doors open at 8:50 AM and close at 9:05 AM)🧘🏽

Member Appreciation

Did you make it to the Earth Day Fair in downtown Bend a couple weeks ago? If you did, you saw our Unity booth with members sharing info about our Unity offerings and doing face painting. We all know it takes a ton of work to organize an event like this so we want to give a huge THANK YOU to lead organizer, Colinda Wolf-Finch!! That booth would not have been possible without her (I saw her to do list and honestly don’t know how she got it all done!). She rallied a great group of volunteers we’d also like to thank – Dave Finch, Nolan Finch, Leia Napoli, Rev. Jane Hiatt, Genesis Ilada, Tally Nelson, Erin Hitchcock, and Anne-Marie Ecklund. Thank you so very much for spreading the word about our amazing community and raising some funds for Unity!


How to Set Up Auto Donations to Unity

Auto donations are an easy way to support our community without having to think about doing it each Sunday at service. It’s also a huge help for our board when they create our annual budget. You can set your monthly or weekly donation using a credit card, debit card, or bank account. You can cancel or change the amount anytime. There is no amount that is too small or too big. We are so grateful to all who financially support our lovely community ! 🙏🏽 🌈
