REMINDER: ROAD CONSTRUCTION. EWEB is working on Hilyard from E. 33rd to E. 40th Avenues until summer 2024. Currently, congregants can drive South on Hilyard because they are not "thru traffic" going further than Unity.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES: We are seeking candidates for our Board of Trustees. We have two open seats.

POTS OF SOUP: Each Sunday we serve 2-3 pots of soup. We are looking for 1 person who can bring a pot of soup on a Sunday. Please sign up in the Fellowship Hall if you can help out.

CHURCH CLOSER: We are looking for a volunteer who can serve one Sunday a month by assisting the speaker of the day, receive the offering bags, help count the offering, and close down and lock the church. Please sign up in the Fellowship Hall or call Géna at 541-345-9913, ext. 11.

Since we began offering a combination of in-person and live-streamed Sunday services, physical attendance at Unity has averaged between 45 and 60 people compared to over 150 people pre-pandemic.  We therefore rely more than ever on your financial support through online donations, mailed-in checks, or automatic donation through our Simple Giving program.  If you are not already using Simple Giving, please consider continuing your financial support by mailing donations to Unity of the Valley, 3912 Dillard Rd., Eugene OR 97405, or contributing through PayPal on our website at unityofthevalley.org

Every challenge in life is an opportunity to expand and deepen our awareness of the One Spirit in all things. Let us remember that with all our precautions, we are in service to that One Light and Love — in truth, we ARE that One Light and Love. And what an amazingly beautiful thing that is!
