Events of the Season at a Glance
This holiday season at Unity Church of San Antonio features new experiences as well as cherished traditions. After over 20 years of providing a Christmas experience at Pecan Hill Apartments, we celebrate a time of successful completion of our outreach there.
In its place, an inaugural holiday outreach to a program long supported by our CommUNITY, THRU Project. We also chime in Christmas by combining our traditions of candlelighting with the sweet sounds our young people in one special Sunday service. Our time-honored Remembrance Service, Burning Bowl Ceremony, and White Stone Service endure.
Whatever offering resonates with you, know that you will be warmly welcomed by our affirming CommUNITY.
Remembrance Service, Thursday, December 6, 2018, 7:00 p.m.
At Unity Church of San Antonio, we offer an annual Remembrance Service to honor any of life’s transitions, changes, and losses. At the service, we are invited to recognize the spirit of the people who have touched our lives. This year our service will feature a special altar where you can place a photo of your loved one. A corkboard and pushpins will be available for your photo, or feel free to bring your framed photo that can stand on its own.
Deck the Halls! Sunday, December 9, 2018, 12:30 p.m.
Lend your helping hands to get our beautiful sanctuary Christmas-ready. Don’t work on an empty stomach; a generous person has donated money toward pizza to have available in the CommUNITY Center before we start. Get a slice before you arrive to help us decorate!
Unity & Thru Holiday Connections, Sunday, December 16, 2018, 12:00 p.m.
THRU Project supports young people leaving foster care and is a non-profit born at Unity Church of San Antonio. Please donate homemade cookies before the service on December 16, and bring them to the CommUNITY Center – the Unity youth will package them during the service for the THRU clients to take home. Then attend a light luncheon and dessert at 12:00 p.m. with THRU Clients. Funds donated earlier in the season will provide stuffed animals for THRU clients with small children.
Candlelighting Christmas Celebration, Sunday December 23, 2018, 11:00 a.m.
Explore the metaphysical and symbolic aspects of the season at this family-friendly service. Christ being born anew is a powerful reminder of our own spiritual rebirth and our True essence. It is also a potent reminder that the transformative power of the human spirit can be called forth at will.
Burning Bowl Service, Monday, December 31, 2018, 7:00 p.m.
This ceremony provides an opportunity for participants to let go of thoughts, feelings, events, and ideas from 2018 that no longer serve them. All are welcome to participate in this meaningful and powerful ceremony where you can gently release 2018, creating an opening for fulfillment of desires in the New Year.
White Stone Ceremony, Sunday, January 13, 2019, 11:00 a.m.
The white stone is a symbol of freedom found in the Bible; it represents starting the New Year with a clean slate. Claim your freedom and discern what your inspiration will be in the coming year at this meaningful service.
May your days be filled with peace, hope, and joy this holiday season from all of us at Unity of San Antonio.
