LOCALmotion – Jozelle Smith

Since 1949, small but mighty Westside Unity Church, located at 10724 Barman Ave. (just across from the Culver City Municipal Plunge), has offered local folks an alternative to more traditional Christianity, with members who are committed to making a positive difference in the world. Board president Jane Leonard invites everyone to join in each Sunday’s 10:00 a.m. worship experience that’s combined with upbeat, contemporary music. There’s also a mid-week meditation, renewal and healing service Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (310) 838-4761.
On the sick list is Bob Wassertheur, former CCPD Sergeant and CCUSD security chief, hospitalized in Oceanside. Please join us in sending Bob your positive thoughts and prayers.
