Message from the Minister

Dear Spiritual Community,
I'm sitting in my office, it's Wednesday, January 30, 2019, 10:55 a.m., and the air temperature outside is up to-25F. What's this about!!!? When I interviewed back in June nobody told me it gets this cold in Wisconsin. Our office coordinator, Timothy Haukeness, and I are here "holding down the fort," not that it needs holding down or anything. We've just got work to do!
If you think about it, what really "holds down the fort" here at Unity Christ Center? Answer: All of us! That's what makes us a spiritual community, and not just any business. Each of you is an integral part of the consciousness that is constantly creating our ministry. Your highest thoughts, your prayerfully considered beliefs, and your loving service to others is what makes us who/what we are.
On February 9th and 16th our board of trustees will be holding two strategic planning meetings along with some other center leaders. These meetings are to determine through a prayerful discernment process the goals we'd like to see manifest in our spiritual community in the next year. We invite you join with us by sharing your ideas, dreams, inspirations, and projects you think would benefit our ministry. If nothing comes to you to share, then please hold us in prayer! Help us continue to not only "hold down the fort," but BUILD THE FORT!
Feel free to talk with any board member or myself. We are looking forward to your input.
Reverend Alden Studebaker is available to support you through spiritual counseling, prayer, hospital and other visitation, weddings, funerals/memorials, christenings, and special blessings. His private church e-mail address is revalden@aol.com.   His office hours are variable depending on the week, but he is consistently in his office on Tuesdays - Thursdays. To make an appointment, call the church office at 715-836-0010. In case of an urgent need, call his mobile no. 715-450-1868.

The Power for February is "Strength"

Affirmation: I have the strength to accomplish all that is mine to do.
Strength- The ability to endure, stay the course, persevere.
The disciple, Andrew. Represents the stability that lies at the foundation          of every true character.
The corresponding color is light green and the location is the small of the back.
