South Whidbey churches plan weekend services

‘Beyond Resolution’ is the topic at Unity

Rev. Patty Becker will discuss “Beyond Resolution” at the Unity of Whidbey service on Sunday.

Many of us have goals we want to achieve, habits we would like to change and new directions in which we would like to direct our lives. Beginning a new year sparks enthusiasm for change or growth. Goals are worthy things to have, but are often short-lived. What about thinking bigger? What about creating a vision for your life that aligns you with your true potential?

Join Becker as she offers concrete ways to create a personal vision that addresses four major areas of life. Go into 2011 with more than a resolution or two; go with a dream worthy of your possibility.

Tadd CharetteNunn will provide the music, and the platform assistant will be Karen McInerney. “A Course in Miracles” group will meet from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

The Sunday service is at 10 a.m. and all are welcome. Unity of Whidbey is located in its new chapel at 5671 Crawford Road in Langley. Visit Unity of Whidbey’s website for more information.
