Centered in Divine Love, we honor and celebrate single, divorced, or separated adults awakened to peace, abundance, and respect for all creation.
Namaste! Welcome! Glad You're Here!
As a vibrant, spiritual community, we provide intermittent opportunities throughout the year for single, divorced, or separated adult church members, prospective members, and friends to socialize with one another in positive, joyful, uplifting environments for such purposes as dancing, playing, viewing, discussing, and learning.
As the event approaches, brief reminders will appear in Sunday bulletins and mid week emails. There will be no announcements about it in the Community News presentations at the 11:00 AM service, because only events open to the entire community are presented on Power Point. Information can be found on the Unity of Fairfax web site on the Calendar, All Events, and Home in the "Upcoming Events" below. An additional sign-up sheet may become available on the Welcome Table in the Atrium.
Join an activity that beckons your heart. While at play, please introduce yourself. Leave, remembering at least one new face you met.

Rules of Engagement
- Each member shall respect the actions and viewpoints of all other members equally.
- Each member shall experience an equal opportunity to hear and to be heard.
- If a conflict arises between members, without bias, co-leaders shall facilitate finding a resolution to the mutual satisfaction of each party.
- In order to provide the widest variety of activities as possible, each member shall take a turn either hosting an event, co-hosting an event, or at the very least, telling Charli Brown or Karen Jo about an event that she or he would like to be included on the singles calendar.
- As a social network, nothing said or done at these events or activities is considered private or secret. Expect participants to leave an event bubbling with anecdotes about what happened and what was said that may be shared with others in zeal. Such activities are not appropriate venues in which to share a confidence.
- Attendance isn't required, but we hope group members are naturally attracted to attend at least 3 activities in the year.
- If a member feels distant from offerings over time, he or she should speak up, host, or co-host something more attractive to him or her.
- In order for events to be successful, each member is expected to RSVP in a timely manner. That way proper space can be reserved or cancellations made as needed.
- Telling a host or co-host that one plans to attend something is a commitment not to be taken lightly. Not showing up after making such a commitment lacks honor. If circumstances change after making a commitment, the host should be told of the change in advance.
- Plans for an event or opportunity need to be made early enough to review its relation with the church calendar and get included in the church bulletin and Community News slide presentation at the 11:00 AM service. The host or co-hosts for the event are responsible for taking care of these tasks for that event and may arrange for help in doing so.
