"10 Secrets for Success & Inner Peace"
Sunday Series, beginning April 27, 2014, for 7 weeks
9:00 am & 11:00 am Services

Tuesday Series, beginning, April 29, 2014, for 7 weeks
7:00 pm
Facilitated by: Greg Barrette, Senior Minister

The best selling book, "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace" by
Wayne Dyer, will be the basis of a seven-week Sunday and Tuesday
series at Unity Northwest Church.

"Is your life path lit by your inner candle flame, or are you stumbling along in the dark? " asks Greg Barrette. "Each Sunday for seven weeks, we will explore Wayne Dyer's classic book of practical
spirituality, followed by a seven week Tuesday night discussion-based class series, using directed study questions, meditations and lessons designed to move you into a new relationship with your inner self." The children and teens in the Youth Ministry Program will also have then own set of lessons that align with this material.

"Dr. Wayne Dyer reminds us of what so many people forget in the
day-to-day grind of life, that material success is not what we are
ultimately trying to achieve, and shouldn't be our driving force. We
can only find true success and inner peace once we discover our
burning inner desire, or as Dr. Dyer describes it, an "inner candle
flame."

"Circulation Day"
Friday, May 2, 2014 - Drop off your items
1:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Saturday, May 3, 2014 - Come get "new" stuff
8:00 am to 1:00 pm

Unity Northwest Church is holding their "Circulation Day" which is a kind of Yard Sale without any money involved. It will be held in the church front yard on Saturday, May 3rd from 8:00am to 1:00pm. "We invite everyone in the Northwest Suburbs to simply bring their unwanted items to the church on Friday, May 2nd from 1:00pm to 8:00pm, and then come back the next day to take what they need from what has been left by others," said Greg Barrette, Senior Minister of Unity Northwest Church. 

"A woman who had never seen our church before, came to last year's Circulation Day after waking up that morning and praying for the needs of her children, one of whom had a terminal illness whose medical bills had wiped them out" said Barrette.  "She could see no way to meet their family's needs, such as the two bicycles her children required."

"When she drove down Central Road, she saw the sign saying “Free Garage Sale,” pulled in and found the exact items she was praying for, including a microwave, a vacuum, and one bicycle.  But she needed two.  A volunteer from our church remembered an unused one in her garage, and drove home to get it."

"Circulation Day demonstrates that there is always enough to go around, if we simply distribute it right.  Just bring what you don't need and take what you do. It's free of charge.  Over the past thirty-five years, Circulation Day has been experienced by hundreds of thousands of people. It is a lot of fun and teaches us that there truly can be enough if we just circulate it!"
