Letter from our Board President
May 17, 2021
Dear Unity of Blue Water Family,
This has been such a challenging year, but there is a real sense of hope and optimism as more people become vaccinated and the number of COVID-19 cases in the community declines. In accordance with guidelines put forth by the Centers for Disease Control, and adopted by the State of Michigan, face masks are no longer required at Unity of Blue Water for those who are fully vaccinated. If you are not vaccinated or just prefer to be cautious, of course you may continue to wear a mask. This means we can return to some of the things we have missed so much in the last year, including singing, forming a circle to pray together, and staying after church for coffee and conversation.
As we hit the "reset" button and move to grow our church into the safe and nurturing spiritual center it has always been meant to be, I'd like to invite you to plan to stay after church on Sunday May 30th for a brainstorming session where we can talk about our hopes and dreams for Unity of Blue Water. Bring ideas for events you'd like to see at the church and ways to reach out to the community. Please invite anyone and everyone for this exciting exchange of ideas. Brain food (pizza) will be provided so we can really get the creative juices flowing!
A couple other things real quick: As I said, this has been a challenging year for us all. But our building is still here at 431 17th Street in Port Huron, and the lights are still on. So many people have been so generous during a difficult time. But more help is needed. So, if you have not been giving a love offering because you have been physically distant from our building, and if you can find it within your heart, your financial support is needed and greatly appreciated.
Please reach out to anyone who may have drifted away and would like to come back. ALL are welcome! And we will continue to stream our Sunday services on Facebook Live for those who prefer to look in from a distance. Looking forward to seeing you this and every Sunday morning at 10:30am. And don't forget to plan to hang around for pizza and brainstorming on Sunday the 30th!
Yours in Unity,
