Friday, June 6, 2014 7p.m. Unity will put on a GREAT show!

Written by Unity United Church. Posted in News

Time to brag again.  I serve a talented group of people. You may ask, “Yeah, well what makes you say that?” THE GREAT BRITISH SHOW Well, can YOUR group of people put on an original musical production (well, original in the production sense of the word—the music is all well known) complete with singing, dancing, props and costumes having only rehearsed for a couple of months? *crickets chirping* I didn’t think so. Janet Antebi is the founder  of JAYCO productions. Unity is blessed by her presence in our church. She has put on a number of shows throughout the local community and the province. She has graciously offered her theatrical, musical and directorial gifts to our church. With the help of the Unity congregation and choir she has put together   “The Great British Show”.  Why “Great British”? Well, it was inspired by Victoria Day and -initially- the show was supposed to run very close to that day .  The date changed due to a scheduling conflict but the theme stayed the same. So, come on out to the Great British Show: FRIDAY, JUNE 6, @ 7pm. Read the poster for details. FOR TICKETS: Call Penny: at 705-727-6274 or Call Carol: at 705-534-7027

Accessibility leads to (temporary) inaccesibility

Written by Unity United Church. Posted in Accessibility Project 2014, News

Well folks, the accessibility project continues at Unity. Pretty exciting really. We are lucky/blessed to have the funds, the builders and the human resources to make this happen. Special thanks to the building team for their leadership and vision during this time. Photo 2014-03-23, 10 02 45 Right now, we have hit a rather ironic point in the process. In order to be accessible, we need to endure some temporary inaccesibility. We are really, really sorry about that.  For all intents and purposes, our church is a worksite right now and we need to make sure that those who use the downstairs portion of the building while construction is happening do so safely. And sometimes, the safest place for those of us who don’t have safety equipment or safety clothing can be is away from the work site while work is going on. So…this week, the office will be relocating to our Music Director’s home. Our worship committee will also be meeting there. Our Jesus 24/7 program and our Sounds of Silence programs are going on hiatus until June. Please keep an eye on this page for further details. If you need to reach us, send an email. They are still being checked during this exciting time! 

Working from Home March 12, 2014

IMG_1109Another morning in March, another snow day. That picture is on the 400 Northbound.

Yesterday, the weather was gorgeous—denim jacket wearing weather, sunshine streaming through the car window weather, crank up the tunes and roll the window down weather (until you realize it’s not THAT warm.)  The outside temperature according to my car’s thermometer was 7 degrees. Seven! Perfect day for the drive to Presbytery meetings. (Close to 7 hours worth!)

But that was yesterday.

And today, we have this…with the possibility of the temperature dipping to -29.

So, I will be working from home today. Unity folk know how to reach me. If you need to reach me and you’re not sure how to do that, drop me a line through this website. I’ll be checking it a LOT today. (Please click “>>” to see the rest of the message)
