Come to the October 18 “Parking Lot” Service

On Sunday, October 18, at 11:00am, Unity of Roanoke Valley will hold a live “parking lot” service. It will be safe with masks, social distancing, and following all of the standards from the state and CDC.

More details will appear in our e-newsletters about how people should park, etc. The service will be broadcast into your car FM radio. Bring lawn chairs if you want, and details will be given about how they can be safely spaced.

This will not be a repeat of the service we post on YouTube. It will be an entirely different service, with a different message, and different music.

 The Sessions Band will be there, and Dr. Janice Cusano will also have great music for the service.

 So come and join us. A good and safe time will be had by all.

Unity World Day of Prayer

FROM FEAR TO FAITH
UNITY’s WORLD DAY OF PRAYER

The evening of Wednesday, September 9  
through  
the evening of Thursday, September 10. 

Usually many Unity churches open their sanctuary for 24 hours of prayer and provide several special events. Given COVID-19, we are not doing that. Instead you will be able to go online to participate in events at Unity Village (Unity’s world headquarters). 

To see the events schedule and what you can attend online click this link, or go to https://www.unity.org/wdop . 

“Unity started out as a prayer ministry. The World Day of Prayer reminds us of the power of prayer. Moving from fear to faith is something we really need as we go the challenges of 2020,” Rev. Rick comments. 

Prayer requests can also be phoned in to Unity of Roanoke’s office.
We also encourage you to post a positive thought, quote, or prayer, to URV’s Facebook event page by clicking here.

Meet Rev. Rick on July 5
