Covid – 19 Update

 

Due to the increase in Covid cases due to the Omicron variant, we would like to implement some additional precautions to keep everyone safe.

 

– If you have been attending in person services and you test positive for Covid, please contact the office to let us know. This information will be kept private, and will allow us to notify other members of a close contact exposure.

 

– The updated mask guidance recommends KN95 masks, as they are the best protection against this new variant. We will have some of these masks available.

 

– Please be sure to social distance while sitting in the Sanctuary, including sitting every other pew if possible.

 

– Please don’t come to Unity if you are experiencing any sort of cold, flu or Covid symptoms.

 

– We will have a TEAM revisit our current guidelines and update them as needed as this pandemic situation continues to change.

 

Thank you for your patience, understanding and compliance during these difficult times!

Preview for Sunday

 

Guest Speaker – Reverend Jim Yeaw

 

 

‘Creating the Beloved Community’

 

In this message we will continue to share ideas about a Spiritual Community, such as the one named Unity of Fort Collins. The title is appropriate as the term is associated with Dr. Martin Luther King and relates to January as his birth month. In this segment we will talk about obstacles to Being. We will share how obstacles can be opportunities. We will highlight the five most common pitfalls: ignoring stages of consciousness or awareness; addiction to authority and form; expectations of leaders; lack of vision. In the next segment on January 30 we will share ideas on opening the heart in a beloved community.

Tech Update

 

We understand that there have been some issues with the audio on the live stream.

 

We fully recognize that our online presence is here to stay, and we are creating a new vision for improving the technical aspects of our live streaming.

 

We are looking for some people that would be interested in volunteering to help Andres with the tech duties during the Sunday service. If you are interested, please contact the office at 970-482-1620 or office@unityfc.org. 

 

We are currently creating a new website and newsletter.  We are hoping to launch them in the next month.

 


 

Envelopes for Cash Donations

 

Earlier this year we started using envelopes for cash love offerings. Please be sure to write your name, the date and the amount on the envelope. This will allow us to record them, and then we will send you a donation letter at the beginning of the following year for you to use as a receipt for tax purposes. Thank you for your generosity!

Our Sunday School program continues to grow, and we can now accommodate children of all ages, as long as they are potty trained and can tolerate wearing a mask.

Unity is proud to partner with ClimateWise!

ClimateWiseLogo

What is ClimateWise, you ask?

ClimateWise” is a free voluntary business program that encourages the adoption of strategies proven to use energy, water, and land more efficiently, while generating less waste, lower operating costs and reducing greenhouse gases.”

 

Unity has achieved “Platinum” status.

 


The Uni-Teams

 

A few years ago, when we had the forums and asked folks what they wanted to see at Unity, you asked for more personal interaction. You asked to get involved. So the Uni-Teams were born. At that time, the teams were formed according to the interests folks spoke of.

Since that time, some of the teams have thrived, some have lost energy. So at your request, we have reorganized them. Have a look at what’s available and let us know if you’d like to participate in one (or more!).

Don’t see a team for a subject/area that you’re passionate about? No worries.
Pitch your team idea to us. You can even be the chairperson.

Here is a list of the current teams and their description:

 

OutReach Team 

  • Provide service to help support under-served individuals and communities external to our Unity—in our neighborhood, town, state, country and world, enabling them to become more self-sufficient and prosperous.

 

Hospitality Team 

  • Focusing on raising community awareness of our wonderful Unity facility, and hosting additional appropriate events in our Unity home. We have several existing Unity hosts currently trained in sound system setup.

 

Facilities Team

Care of our Unity home

  • Includes building maintenance and improvements
  • Grounds upkeep and landscaping, ice mitigation, sprinkler system etc.

 

Community Life Team

  • Nurturing and caring for our Unity community in the form of movie nights, book study, education, classes, etc. “In-house” events for our Unity members to encourage bonding, engagement, education and spiritual growth.

Prayer Requests

prayerrequestsSilent Unity
1-800-NOW PRAY (669-7729)

In need of a friendly voice and an affirmative prayer for yourself or someone else?

Silent Unity is a 24-hour, 7-days-a-week, even-on-holidays, all-faith, free support service provided by Unity Village, at Unity Headquarters, in Missouri. You simply call the number and you are greeted with a lovely recorded voice for a (very!) brief hold, then a live person comes on the line and talks to you and tells you that they are privileged to pray with you today, and asks how they may join you in prayer.

All requests are kept confidential.

After your prayer, he/she will ask if you would like to receive a support letter.

Then they take your prayer request and write it on a piece of paper and take that paper to their Chapel, where in 30-minute shifts, someone stays in prayer 24/7.

Your request is held there in their Chapel for 30 days, being prayed over constantly.

Myrtle Fillmore started Silent Unity as a prayer group. People started writing in and requesting prayers, and they would pray on those issues and answer the letters. When the amount of letters arriving became overwhelming, they had a phone line put in to handle more volume. This was in the early 1900’s. It has been a free, supportive service ever since.

You can call their number (1-800-669-7729) and talk to someone, email them, or you can even download an app for you mobile device.

You can also submit a written prayer request at our Unity. The Prayer Box is prayerboxlocated in the entry. Just write your request on a piece of paper and put it in the (locked) box. All notes are kept confidential unless otherwise requested. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 970-482-1620 or contact via this website.
