Wellspring Wednesday at Unity Church has long been a multi-generational opportunity to gather midweek at church for food, fellowship, and fun. While the church building remains closed due to the pandemic, we are unable to share a meal together but we continue to gather online for programming. Multi-generational chapel services are prerecorded and posted on the church’s YouTube channel each Wednesday for viewing anytime that afternoon or later; and Unity’s Religious Education program offers Our Whole Lives (OWL) classes for youth and periodic Tweens gatherings on Wednesday evenings starting in September.
For adults, one or two live online programs each Wednesday will begin at 7:00 p.m., offering enrichment, spiritual practice and fellowship. I hope you’ll join us. If you haven’t yet participated in an online program using Zoom, church staff can help you get started. Descriptions and registration links for September’s programs are listed below. (Unless otherwise noted, you can use the registration link right up until the program starts to participate.) Also watch your daily email from the church for additional program options that may be announced as the month unfolds.
