First Unity Church Sunday Service — January 16, 2022

Important Note:

Effective Monday, January 17, all upcoming First Unity events have been cancelled, including: January 17 Ladies Night Out; January 17 Men’s Club; and January 19 Hospitality Ministry.

We will hold an in-house service this Sunday, January 16, reverting back to the 6 feet distancing guideline.  We will not have all the pews roped off as before, but those of you who plan to attend physically, please seat yourselves 6 feet away from others (except, of course, those in your party.)  This also means virtual hugs only. 😞
Starting Sunday, January 23, we will have service via live stream only.  It will be at 10:30 a.m. as always.  You can find the link on our Facebook page, website, or First Unity Church of St. Louis YouTube.

Please join us for First Unity Church’s January 16, 2022 Sunday Service at 10:30 a.m. This week’s message is from Anne Hartupee, Licensed Unity Teacher, and is entitled “Unwrapping the Gift You Are.

You can livestream the service through the following direct link:
