“The Course”

 

Where and when in your life do you ever feel off-balance or out of synch with someone or some aspect of your life? Have you ever heard about the course an airplane flies between it’s departure and arrival cities? The flight course is never a straight line between the two places. The plane is actually off course 90% of the time in it’s flight path! I find it amazing that the plane being 90% off it’s course, still arrives at it’s intended destination!

 

What is it that needs to occur for the plane to arrive at it’s destination? This is the subject of our service this Sunday. Together we will explore more of the spiritual power known as “Order” and what we can do when we find ourselves personally off course or out of synch with someone or something in our lives.

 

If you are curious about this subject, I encourage you to join us in-person or in our YouTube live-streamed service at 10 am this Sunday or you can revisit the recorded service at a later time. Until then, may you remember that you truly are a unique individualized expression of Divine Love, supported by an Intelligence far greater than you know. And so it is.

 

With great gratitude and love always,
Rev. Liz

Special Video being shown again

Sunday October 10 at 11:30am

 

On Intergenerational Spirituality and the Evolution of Churches – John Wimberly Keynote from Unity Worldwide Ministries 2021

 

Dear Unity Members and Friends,

 

Reverends Liz and Davine shared with the Council a session they attended (virtually) with a man, Dr. John Wimberly, who is a wise consultant and is working with Unity Worldwide.

 

The Council really appreciated seeing this session and experienced him as helping form thoughts and dialogue.  We wanted to share this same session with the Unity Community for our collective conversations.

 

This is not a dogmatic or prescriptive session. It is a forward thinking musing about intergenerational needs and evolving spirituality.  We were inspired and would love to expand the conversation.

 

The video will be shown at 11:30am on Sunday October 10th in the Sanctuary, after the service.

 

Love your Unity Council,

 

Kurt Johnson, Anne Hudgens, Nina Kunze, Gerald Gates, Katie Dockery

 


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

   
We are excited to announce that Sunday School
is now open for ages 4 and up!!!

 

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.

 
At this time, we can only accommodate 4 years old and above. We cannot wait to be open for the younger children.

“Grief and Loss”
Spiritual Support Group”

2nd and 4th Wednesdays

 

 September 29nd  ~  6 pm

 

(will not meet on Sept. 22)

 

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.
