Services During COVID
Summer Building Usage and
Soft Opening in September
This summer will be a practice for us to feel comfortable at in-person gatherings. Starting this month, Reverend Julia will offer a Pet Blessing Service for us outside the church on June 20, 2021, at 3:30 pm. The service will also be online in our Zoom room. Fellowship will have some lemonade and cookies for us after the service. This will be a pack-out event, which means whatever we bring in, we’ll need to take out with us. At present we don’t have trash pickup or cleaner. If you would like to volunteer please call me at 719-291-3522.
On August 22nd, Fellowship has planned quite a gathering for us, an All-Church Sunday FUUnday & Picnic at Black Forest Regional Park, 4800 Shoup Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80908. Fellowship will keep us informed of the details.
Small-Group and Ministry Teams may meet in person at your homes as well at the Unity Campus. You may decide amongst yourselves whether you want to wear masks and practice social distancing. If you choose to use the Unity campus you must pack-out and clean up any time you use the building.
Use of Unity Campus – Anyone who wants to be on Unity grounds for any reason, please contact Gretchen Hein. She is the liaison between Unity and High Plains for any summer activities at Unity Campus. She will be in contact with the Unity Office Administrator and will get it scheduled on the joint calendar with Unity. Please let her know at least three days ahead if you’d like to use the building by email her
A Soft Opening at Unity September 12th – Ingathering Service in the Sanctuary at 3:30 pm. Mark your calendar. More to come later. For those who are not ready to meet in person, we will continue to have an online presence. Services will be on Zoom throughout the summer.
Can’t wait to see you all in person!!

News on Covid Policy from the HPCUU Board
March 22, 2021
Recently, congregants have been wondering when we will be able to return to in-person meetings. The Board pledges that we will be transparent, responsive, and deliberate about how we go about this. We value your input and value our being together. Before we make a major decision regarding meeting in person, or any other major decisions regarding our response to COVID, the Board plans to gather your thoughts through a personal call and/or survey questions. We will welcome your feedback, questions, and concerns.
The HPCUU Board will continue to follow guidelines of the CDC, the State of Colorado Department of Health (CDHP), and the El Paso County Health Department (EPCHD) criteria for meeting in person, masking, and social distancing as we have all along. The Board will also continue to collaborate with the Unity Board on decisions regarding the use of the campus. As options come to our attention the Board will inform the congregation through the HPCUU Web Site, Urgent Board Updates tab.
If you haven’t gotten vaccinated yet, we hope that you all join the excitement about getting vaccinated and follow through when it’s your turn.
Rest assured, we will continue our vibrant online presence regardless.
Gretchen Hein, Board President
