Letter from the Board President, Maria Garcia

Dear Congregation,

The number one question the board has been asked is, “Who will be our new minister?” I am here to finally answer that question. The new Senior Minister for Unity San Diego is Rev. Karla Lightner as of May 1st. She has shown great passion and strong sense of vision for our church. Over the years her dedication to the church has shown with a spirit filled light. The board looks forward to working with Rev. Karla to continue our spiritual growth together.
    Life is full of change and new adventures. Let us embrace these moments as the beautiful reminder that God is ever present and ever with us.

Changes to the Board . . .
   This is to inform the congregation that Board President Amy Lint has resigned her position on the board due to personal demands. We thank her for her dedicated service. Stepping into the role of President is Maria Garcia. While Mathew Lightner remains on the Board of Directors, he has resigned his position as Treasurer. Stepping in as our new Treasurer is Carla Manson. Also, PJ Bovee has stepped down due to work and family demands.

Maria Garcia,
Board President
