Important Announcements
You are Invited!

to Unity Council Meetings 

Council meetings are usually held on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 11:30am.

They are open to everyone and everyone has a voice, so feel free to join us.
Transition Update ~ June 6, 2019

At the membership meeting on Sunday, June 2nd, we approved the proposed Vision, Mission, and Core Values statements for our Unity.

We also approved the proposed bylaw changes, and agreed to be Unity Worldwide Ministries (UWM) members. UWM was informed of our decision, and they have sent us their "packet" of information to fill out and return to them, so that they can then begin sending us Spiritual Leader candidates.

Please check out our Transition Timeline page on our website, to see our progress with the transition.

General Info

The Art of Consensus

Years ago our Unity family released Robert’s Rules of Order and moved to consensus, because it reflects how we actually function in community decision-making. Simply put, consensus is the process of reaching mutual agreement in a group and ensuring that everyone is heard. It moves people toward what they have in common.

The process of voting can exclude the minority opinion. Consensus follows the spirit of Unity, and we believe that the Universe/God/Spirit/Truth supports this process. The Unity Council uses consensus to make all its decisions, and the community as a whole practices consensus at annual and special meetings.

Find out how we use consensus on our website

You can also subscribe online and receive the The Daily Word digitally.
DROP YOUR GEAR at UNITY!
 

Unity is a year-round, drop-off point for Homeward Alliance (formerly Homeless Gear)

There are bins in the lobby and Rumi Room so that you can donate gear at any time of the year.

Donated gear is distributed to people and families who are homeless in Colorado.

They welcome used and new outerwear:
coats
winter gloves
hats
fleece
thermals
hoodies
boots
hand and foot warmers
etc.

Outdoor gear:
tents
sleeping bags
tarps
backpacks
water bottles
flashlights and headlamps
"mess" kits
blankets
hygiene items
etc.

They also welcome
non-perishable food items.

They have a
Children in Need program, so diapers, for instance, are a welcome donation. You can even donate new and used bikes and trailers - any condition.

Please, no basic clothing items (t-shirts, jeans, etc.).

Click on these links to learn more about their many
programs.

Thank you for helping our Colorado homeless!
People are asking, "How can I donate to Unity?"

Some folks have expressed curiosity on how to best donate regularly even when they can’t attend services. We want to make it as easy as possible for you, so we offer several options:

~ Go to our “Links” page on our website (unityfc.org/links) and click on the “Donate” button. After clicking on it, you will be taken to a Paypal page. From there, you can choose to make a one-time payment, or you can choose to make it monthly. You can use your debit/credit card or your Paypal account.

~ Set up a one-time or reoccurring payment through your own bank with their "Bill Pay." You will need our address, below. Then your bank mails Unity a check(s).

~ Snail mail a check to us (1401 West Vine Dr., 80521).

~ Call the office and make a donation by credit/debit card (970-482-1620).

~ Come by the office and bring cash, card or check.
