We meet on the second Monday of every month at 6pm at Unity of Oak Park. All are welcome to attend.
November: We are excited about a lot of forward movement at Unity of Oak Park. We thank everyone who attended our informal congregational meeting in early November. We are greatful for all the direction and insight Rev. Phil has provided us as the transitional minister. We will have our last workshop with him on Saturday, Decemeber 8, where will we focus on our mission, vision and values and we encourage all to attend. We are excited about the Cookie Walk and Bring a Friend to Church day on Sunday, December 9. Rev. Phil shared with us that 90% of new people come to church when they are invited by a friend. We ask that everyone consider bringing a friend and particiipating in this fun day. We are looking for volunteers to help in baking cookies and they can sign up in the book room. We will be moving to one service at 10am beginning January 1, 2019. We hope this will positively shift the energy at Unity of Oak Park and look forward to your support with this important decision. We hope you'll join us at our special holiday services that are scheduled. We warmly wish you and your families a healthy, happy, and prosperous holiday and joyous start to the new year.
October: We are grateful for the flurry of activity at Unity of Oak Park lately. From classes to workshops to Sunday services, we are grateful for all the involvement and dedication. We invite everyone to attend a Congregational Meeting with The Board on Sunday, November 11, after the 11am service in Friendship Hall. In an effort to keep up communication and transparency between the Board and Congregation, we will be holding meetings three times a year instead of just once a year as we've done in the past. We are moving forward with our updated website and look forward to sharing a preview of it then as well as an overall financial update and open Q&A. We thank you for your continued tithing that enables us to cover the building and operating costs to run our church, your support helps us remain a vibrant, abundant, and prosperous community and we are grateful. We hope to see many of you at our first ever Halloween Trunk or Treat from 1-3pm on Sunday, October 27. I believe we are still in need of volunteers so please sign up in the Book Room if you can help in any way. With light and love, The Unity of Oak Park Board of Trustees.
