We are asking for love donations at this time during our online church services to support our work and to allow us to continue through these troubling times. We are not meeting in person so can't pass around the offering plate to help us with ongoing operating expenses that need to be paid: partial rent, full insurance, Zoom fees, payment to the national organization, to name a few.
Scroll to 'Online Church Service'.

World Honeybee Day
Tuesday August 23
No In-Person Mediumship Development Meetup
In-Person Mediumship Classes at UUFSB:
Because there has been little response from people who can commit to coming to in-person mediumship classes at UUFSB on Tuesday night, there will be no class on Tuesday, Aug. 23. Please wait for further news for these classes to resume in September.
UPDATE: The In-Person service that was scheduled for Saturday, September 3 has been changed to Zoom due to the Labor Day holiday weekend.
The next In-Person service will be on September 17.
Moving to Two In-Person SCOL Services: Our church is planning to begin having two in-person/hybrid services a month at UUFSB starting in October. We plan to have in-person/hybrid services on Oct. 1 and 22. For the months that follow, wait for additional emails with more information. If we have enough people attending these two services, we will continue to have two in-person/hybrid services for the months that follow.
At this point, we are not requiring you to wear a mask but you may certainly do so. (Health protocols may change due to changing NY state and UUFSB mandates.) The room for our services in the Religious Education wing has two portable air-purifying systems that will be used during the time we are there.
We require a minimum of four people to attend (not counting the platform workers and helpers). Please let us know if you can commit to coming, and how often, to our in-person/hybrid services. Also, we are looking for more people to serve at our in-person/hybrid services. If you have an interest in offering a Spiritual Address, offering a guided meditation, or being a greeter, please let us know in an email. Please email our church with your reply or for any questions you may have: firstname.lastname@example.org

Here's the link to view a catalog of the activities, workshops and events this year at Lily Dale:
NSAC Convention 2022
After a two-year absence there will be a convention held this autumn in Phoenix, Arizona.
For more information visit https://nsac.org/news-events/convention/
A delegation from Summerland will be attending, more details soon.
A note from Rev. Frank Kotowski:
Jane R., Terry K., and I went to Amber Court Assisted Living in Smithtown last Monday, August 8 as community outreach.
There we offered a program of a guided meditation, Spiritual healing, and spirit messages to SCOL church member Daveda Horn and fellow residents of Amber Court.
Our program was facilitated by Amber Court Recreation Director Mezzy Desravine.
It was a wonderful experience and we plan to do this more often.
Spiritual Healing Requests
Spirit healings result from law-governed forces being put into operation following the sending forth of a thought directive (prayer). Spirit guides and doctors will diagnose the trouble and its cause, attention being directed to overcoming the cause, and then removing the symptoms.
Please set time aside each day to send healing thoughts for each of those listed below, that they may receive from Spirit that which is for their highest and best needs. Your healing prayers are needed and benefit others in ways we may never know.
To request that a name or situation be placed on this healing list, please send a
note to email@example.com
Prayer for Spiritual Healing
I ask the Great Unseen Healing Force
To remove all obstructions
From my mind and body
And to restore me to perfect health.
I ask this in all sincerity and honesty
And I will do my part.
I ask this Great Unseen Healing Force
To help both present and absent ones
Who are in need of help
And to restore them to perfect health.
I put my trust and love in the power of God.
Prayers for all those who have experienced violence and abuse.
Prayers for areas affected by recent natural disasters around the globe:
fires out west, flooding in the southeast, earthquakes in the Philippines.
It is a pleasure for us to serve Spirit and our
community. Here is a list of the Board Members
who are here to help you. Blessings.....
