As the Unity building recovers from the September 8th, 2019 fire, meet us at The Fledge.
UNITY AT THE FLEDGE
Our neighbors have been kind enough to invite us to use the sanctuary space at this neighborhood creative incubator.
Each Sunday morning, the Celebration Team and Fellowship team prepare the space for service. We can accomodate up to 120 people. Parking is available at the Ronald McDonald parking lot on Sundays, as well as the Unity lot.
Located at 1300 Eureka, the building is one block north of the Unity building.
The main level of the Fledge is handicap accessile with an outside ramp on the Holmes Street side of the building. There is a bathroom on the main level off the entry way. Fellowship time is also held on the sanctuary level. Sunday SALT (Sunday Adult Learning Time) is held on the lower level, first door on the right.
The Fledge is a radically inclusive environment serving neighbors, immigrants, newly returning citizens, and more. It helps people learn practicle skills and guides them to start their own businesses. The Fledge operates on values over rules.
The lower level contains a kitchen, an T shirt print company, several recording studios and an open conversation spaceas well as the room we use for our Sunday SALT sesions. There are always projects in progress.
The lobby is a store for products created by members at the Fledge. The yard is a variety of vegetation. All produce is available to whomever needs it.
You will also find racks of clothes for free for anyone in need.
