We currently have one service each Sunday at 11:00 am. When attendance increases we will return to our regular schedule of two services each Sunday.
We strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask while at URV, regardless of their vaccination status. As we move indoors for winter, we all need to be more aware and cautious. We encourage everyone to follow social distancing guidelines. If you have any acute respiratory symptoms or other signs of being sick, we ask that you stay home, take care of yourself, and watch the YouTube service.
Our YFM program is back in action! Bring your children with you on Sunday – they will enjoy the expanded program under our new director, Dawn Rees-Blakeman.
At the Sunday, May 22nd, 11:00 am service and YouTube service we will look at Unity’s Fourth Principle, which is about the importance of prayer and meditation in our lives.
“Unity suggests that we try Affirmative Prayer. Jesus explained this so well when he said, ‘When you pray believe that you have received and you will receive’ (Mark 11:24),” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.
This Sunday, May 1st, at the11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will explore Unity’s First Principal.
“Unity’s first principle – that God is absolute good everywhere present – challenges us to move beyond our ‘press release’ about God. It’s important to get at what we really believe about God when the chips appear to be down,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous says.
This exploration of Unity’s First Principle is part of a new series that will examine all of Unity’s Five Basic Principles. Spirit Circles – small groups that meet at URV, people’s homes, and online – are studying Unity’s Five Principles for their spring session. To be a part of a Spirit Circle click here.
At the Sunday, April 3rd, 11:00 am service and YouTube service, we will explore how labyrinths have been a key part of human beings’ spiritual walks for thousands of years.
“Labyrinths have provided a spiritual path home in a wide range of societies through the ages. There are some common denominators for getting the most out of labyrinth walks,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.
Join us for guided walks at URV’s labyrinth before and after the 11:00 am service.
At the Sunday, March 27th, 11:00 am service and YouTube service, we will look at Unity’s unique take on Judas Iscariot.
“Almost all branches of Christianity long ago have thrown Judas Iscariot out of their churches and told him never to darken their doors again. Unity has a very different approach. The early Unity pioneers felt there was a bit of Judas in all of us. They advised us ‘to love our Judas back to health.’” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.
At both the March 20th, 11:00 am service and YouTube service, we will start a two-part series on Judas Iscariot.
“Recently, there has been an incredible amount of interesting research and archaeology related to Judas Iscariot,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes. This Sunday we will look at the question, “Why did Judas do what he did?” Next Sunday we will explore Unity’s unique take on Judas.
