FAST FORWARD Progress
by Donna Burkholder, UCSA Board of Trustees Member
In March of 2014, the Board of Trustees at Unity Church of San Antonio presented to the membership a five year plan for UCSA called "Fast Forward.” There were ten initiatives in the plan. Intentions were set and prioritized during a congregational gathering. We are pleased to announce that the Mortgage Team has completed their work. They have negotiated a new mortgage. They have provided more fund raising options to pay off the mortgage in less than five years. Implementation of the fund raising options will begin soon.
Nehemiah Retreat at Unity Village
By Dottie Henderson, LUT
Join Us at the Upcoming Nehemiah Service Retreat October 19-24, 2014
Last October Katy Giglio and Dottie Henderson participated in the Fall Nehemiah Service Retreat, and upon completion, made an immediate commitment to return. As two of several dozen Nehemiah Retreat volunteers from around the nation, we came together in sacred service to rebuild and restore the grounds and buildings of Unity Village. We worked on different projects that greatly needed our attention. We felt deeply appreciated as Unity Village residents and staff would drive by, stop their cars, and personally thanks for our gifts of service.

August Appreciation - Ushers and Lending Library
Last Sunday, our CommUNITY honored two Sacred Service Teams during church at Unity Church of San Antonio. UCSA took time to appreciate UCSA’s Usher Team and Lending Library Team.
Ushers arrive early and help prepare a comfortable environment for worship. They perform many tasks above and beyond greeting people warmly at the door! Ushers check the campus for Saturday night trash and check the rest rooms. During the service, ushers the dim lights at meditation time. They collect the offering as well as completed prayer intention cards. After services are complete, Ushers pick up items left in the pews after the service. They provide what's needed to make the Sunday celebration an inspiring experience.
