Mediumship Development Meetup
Hidden Energies of Winter
Hi, everyone. For our Mediumship Class on Thursday on Zoom, we will be working with energies that seem to be dormant and hidden beneath the surface. Let us tune in to the energies of Winter and see what activities are still happening that are less obvious than those we witness and experience in the warmer seasons.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
••• Please contact Frank before Thursday, 2 pm, to let him know if you are coming or not.: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to attend this Meetup and are younger than 18 years of age, Frank must receive permission from your parents or guardian in writing in an email prior to the Meetup.
••• The cost for this class is $10.00, or $6.00 if that is more affordable. Please pay on our website at this link:
Frank Kotowski is facilitating this mediumship group, which is open to both SCOL members and non members. These classes are to help you build your intuitive and mediumistic abilities. Beginners are welcome!

We are asking for love donations at this time during our online and hybrid church services to support our work and to allow us to continue through these troubling times. We are meeting less often in person so we have less opportunity to collect donations in person 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'.

In-Person Mediumship Meetup on Tuesdays: We have decided to suspend in-person mediumship classes at UUFSB until there is more interest for those wishing to attend.
Two In-Person SCOL Services a Month Now: Our church is having two hybrid services (services that are in-person at UUFSB and also live-streamed on Zoom) a month now. They are usually on the first and third Saturdays of the month, but this may not always be the case.
Our next Hybrid services will be on February 3 and 17. If anything changes concerning our in-person services, we will let you know.
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 hybrid services. Also, we are looking for more people to serve at our 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: email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
