California Pandemic Roadmap

While it's good news to hear that faith-based organizations are considered essential, Unity of Santa Barbara is essentially still closed and services are continuing to be held online through at least the end of May and likely through the end of June, based on the governor's 4-stage reopening plan for California.  We will not be holding services in our parking lot. Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these interesting times.  Stay safe and stay well!
