Sunday Services

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. 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 live streaming 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, Jane Harden.

Mother’s Day and Unity’s Second Principle

This Sunday, May 8th, at the 11:00 am service and at the YouTube service, we will look at Unity’s Second Principle, which states there is a Divine Spark inside of all of us.

“It’s fitting that we will do this on Mothers’ Day. This Spark of the Divine Feminine is our real essence and not our fears,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

This Sunday’s message is part of a six-part series on Unity’s key principles. Spirit Circles are now exploring these life-changing concepts. To be a part of a Spirit Circle, click here.

Unity’s Five Principles: Beyond Our “Press Release” About God

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.

Unity’s Five Principles: The Background Story

On Sunday, April 24th, at the 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will start a new six-part series on Unity‘s Basic Principles.

“We will first look at the background story concerning how these principles came about because there is a great spiritual lesson behind how they were created,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

I would have been there … but maybe not?

At the April 10th, 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will explore whether we would have been at the first Palm Sunday parade had we lived in Jerusalem back then.

“It is easy to say we would have joined Jesus in that triumphal entry into the Holy City. But often, our actions indicate that we might have been ‘no shows,’” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous points out.

Labyrinths: A Spiritual Path Home

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.

Unity’s Unique Take on Judas Iscariot

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.

Judas Iscariot: Why did he do it?

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.

Spiritual Lessons from Sea Horses

This week’s YouTube service teaches us some excellent spiritual principles from seahorses.

“A diver in California learned some wonderful truths about meaning, values, and purpose from seahorses, and so can we,” notes Rev. Dr. Rick Belous.

This week’s YouTube service is a reposting of a popular service from 2020. Next week we will go back to newly recorded YouTube services.

Turn Your Radio On

This week‘s YouTube service will give a metaphysical twist to an old gospel favorite, Turn Your Radio On.

“God is always broadcasting. If we are not hearing anything it’s probably because we have not turned our spiritual radio on. There are ways we can do this,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous explains.

This service is a “rebroadcast” of a popular YouTube service recorded in August 2020.
