Plenty of activities from which to choose

Rev. Wedeking speaks at service

Feel alone in the world? Depressed? Pastor Ron Wedeking will speak Sunday morning at South Whidbey Community Church on the topic, “Remember Whose You Are,” based on the text from Psalm 100.

Sunday worship is from 10 to 11 a.m.

The service is preceded by an adult learning forum at 9, with Stan Walker leading a study in the Book of First Corinthians, and Rick Zapata leading a study in the Book of Genesis: the life of the Patriarchs. These are open classes and everyone is invited.

Home Bible studies are also offered; check the church website for times and locations.

‘Single in a Married World’ at UUCWI

Having officiated at more than 200 weddings, Rev. Amanda Aikman will share her perspective at the Sunday service for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island on the need to celebrate and honor one another’s status — whether married, partnered, happily single or “still looking.”

Aikman is consulting minister at Skagit UU Fellowship in Mount Vernon. She is a spiritual director and joyfulness consultant, and is the author of “Full-Spectrum Joyfulness.” She has won numerous national sermon contests.

The service is at 10 a.m. and all are welcome. Values-based children’s religious exploration classes and childcare will be provided. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation meets at 20103 Highway 525, just north of Freeland.

Learn how to break the hold of fear

Do you feel media-mesmerized? Stories of death, disease, destruction can have us peeping around corners and quivering under covers. You have the power, right now, to break this mesmerizing hold of fear; in doing so, you open up possibility for prayer to help not only yourself, but also the world.

“The enemy is gone forever … the Lord rules forever,” (Psalms 9).

On Sunday, May 29, the Christian Science service focuses on the beliefs of “Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism” and, through readings from the Bible and “Science and Health,” all are welcome to explore how to protect against all-mesmerizing influences.

Services begin at 10:30 a.m. at 15910 Highway 525, just north of Bayview.

Rev. Fahnstock gives the next Unity lesson

Unity Minister Rev. Robbie Fahnstock will give the talk “My Life without Me” at the Unity of Whidbey service on Sunday.

Fahnstock will lead an exploration of how important it is to live from listening to our hearts rather than listening from the frenetic noise of our heads.

Music will be provided by Tadd CharetteNunn, and Sam Glass will serve as platform assistant.

The service is 10 a.m. Sunday at Unity’s church at 5671 Crawford Road. All are welcome.

A Course in Miracles group meets 3:30 to 5 p.m.
