Connecting as Community

Ways to Stay Connected As Spiritual Community

We know that these are challenging times as we are called to social distance.  We realize we can still connect heart to heart and spirit to spirit.  We would like to share with you the many ways that you have of being connected during these upcoming weeks.  Check back as this page will be updated with new offerings.

Sunday Services:

Until further notice, we are following recommended guidelines to have no more than 10 people gathered together.  This means that we will be going fully online with our Sunday services.  We will have 1 service ONLY at 11 am.  In  addition to the Livestream, we have several months of archived services as well.  Click here to visit our Sunday Service Livestream page.
 
Services are also Livestreamed on our Facebook page.  As you join us, let us know you are there through the chat stream.  Interact and chat with others who are also present.
 
Services are are also Livestreamed to our YouTube page.
 
Livestreamed services will be archived on our Website, Facebook, and YouTube pages for those who are not able to join us live.
 

Sunday Fellowship:

We will be using our Zoom Platform to create a Sunday morning fellowship experience.  When you enter the Zoom room, you will be placed into a breakout room with up to five other people.  This will create the intimacy of sitting around a table in the Community Room and sharing conversation.  You will get to know people you may never have met.  You will not necessarily be with the friends you would typically share Fellowship time with.  It is our hope that when we are once more gathering in person, you will have a host of new friends you will have made in Zoom!  To join the Zoom Room at 12 pm each Sunday, click here.

Prayer:

Prayer continues to be an integral way in which we align our mind with Divine Mind, releasing ideas held in error, and affirming the Truth!
 
Daily Prayer Call:  At 8 am, Monday-Friday,we hold a daily prayer call.  Click here for more information or to hear a recent prayer call.
Online Prayer Request:  Our Prayer Chaplains are here to pray with you.  You can submit an online Prayer Request by clicking here.

Live Prayer after 11 a.m. Livestream Service:  Our Prayer Chaplains will be available after our 11 am service in the Zoom Room to pray with you one on one.  Click here to enter the Zoom Room after 11 am Sunday service.

Long Distance Reiki:

The Monday night Reiki Clinic has been an important part of Unity Spiritual Center through the years.  Mary Lee Boeswetter is continuing to offer this service virtually on Monday evening from 7-8 pm.  The service is offered on a sliding scale of $5-$60 for a one hour treatment.  To find out more, or schedule your appointment, call Mary Lee at 440-808-9209 or 216-408-5742.

Caring for Our Grounds:

Spending some time outside, in the sunshine, is a great way to move through these days of social distancing.  Our grounds are large and your support is welcome. Master Gardner Diane Spence will be at Unity at 10 am on weekdays to guide you in gardening at Unity Spiritual Center.  There will be plenty of distance between gardeners, and the support of caring for our grounds is greatly appreciated.

Financial Support for Your Spiritual Community

We are committed to providing you with an abundance of spiritual resources and opportunities to connect as a community.  Our center is fully funded by the donations we receive from YOU!  In addition to participating in the various offerings above, one of the best ways you can continue to support Unity Spiritual Center is through your ongoing donations.  Traditionally, our Sunday service is the time most people choose to give.  We trust God as Source is providing.  We trust you are a channel through which God's good flows to us.   You can click the donate button on the left to make your donation today.  Consider setting your donation up as a recurring donation.  Whether you choose a one-time gift or a recurring donation, know your financial support of Unity Spiritual Center is making a difference in helping us thrive through these upcoming weeks.  Thank you!
