True gratitude…is recognizing that love rather than apprehension holds lasting value, and that there is no end to the embrace of love.
Because love does exist, you and I can be free. ~Hugh Prather

Preview for Sunday

 

“The Altar of Love”

 

Take a breath in. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it. How long can you hold your breath before you have to release it? The truth is that 50% of our lives is taking in and 50% is in releasing or letting go. Right?! And yet how many times in our lives do we hang on to things, people, ideas, situations that no longer serve us? Why is it that we resist letting go?

 

These are a few of the thoughts and ideas we will explore this coming Sunday. Come learn more about what the Spiritual Practice or Power called “Release” is, and how you can best utilize this Practice in your own life in new and powerful ways.

 

There are many benefits to be gained as we begin using these “Release Practices” in our every day lives. I look forward to exploring this arena with you this Sunday, either in-person or by live-stream. Until then, take a breathe of love in and release out anything unlike love, and know you are loved.

 

With great gratitude and love always,
Rev. Liz

Outdoor Clean-Up Day

Saturday October 23, 2021

Please join us for the fall outdoor clean up day!  We will focus on outdoor garden projects small and large, trimming trees and shrubs, cleaning up flower beds, etc.  We would also like to get all our windows washed, inside and out.

 

We will provide some tools and tarps.  If you have your own favorite tools, please bring them.  More details will be provided later, and there will be a sign up sheet available at the Sunday service.  Social distancing and safety protocols will be followed and we can still have fun working together.  

 

And a big thank you goes out to all the ‘Adopt-an-Area’ volunteers that have keep the Unity grounds looking nice all summer.  This work will make the fall cleanup much easier!

If you have any questions you can contact one of the Council members listed at the top of the minutes.

 


Unity Leadership Opportunity!

 

Perhaps you have some experience in managing finances, people, organizations, diverse groups and opinions? Are you a good problem solver and communicator? If so we need you!

 

One of our present Council members needs to leave the Unity Council and will not be able to complete his Council term, which completes in February 2022. In support of his need to leave the Council, we are looking for your support in volunteering as a temporary Unity Council member until February 2022.

 

Even if you have not served on a Council like this before, please consider volunteering. Now is when your service is most needed and when your service can be the most rewarding.

 

Please contact us at office@unityfc.org if you are interested in this opportunity and for more information!

 

Here are some fun facts and realistic expectations about serving:

 

There is one Business Meeting per month (currently the third Sunday from 11:30 – 1:30 pm).

 

This is a volunteer position. The giving of your talent, leadership and wisdom is your reward.

 

Candidates are elected by the Members at the Annual Membership Meeting in February.

 

All regular Council positions serve for two years and may be re-elected for another term.

 

You will have the opportunity to form deeper relationships with other council members and your ministers.

 

Thank you for considering this opportunity. 🙂

 


Unity of Fort Collins
Sunday School

   

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.

 

Please enter at the West door by the playground, with a mask and water bottle!  We are keeping everyone safe by using hand sanitizer at the door, health screening questions and social distancing while we are inside.

 

One child in the bathroom at a time and we have our own bathroom. At this time only adults are entering the sanctuary. The Sunday school room is cleaned after each use. 

 

We will enjoy some circle time and have some fun outside. Our “All together now” program explores Unity core beliefs.  We have had some great volunteers so far and we are looking for a few more. 

 

We are so excited to see our kids back at Unity!!!

 

Any questions contact Stacey Thompson 970-658-1198 or Staceythompson702@gmail.com

“Grief and Loss”
Spiritual Support Group”

2nd and 4th Wednesdays

 

 October  27  ~  6 pm

 

After this past year, many of us are struggling with loss. Grief has many faces and it can be the loss of many things in your life. This group may offer you some comfort and guidance.

 

We’ll have a chance to acknowledge areas we are grieving and to name it, so that it’s easier to validate and allow support in.

 

This group will meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. It can be a drop-in or a regular group depending on the group’s desire.

 

Facilitated by Rev. Davine Young, who is a chaplain and very familiar with loss.

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.
