It takes a lot to run Unity Spiritual Center. While it takes a lot of steady financial support to pay the bills and the staff salaries, it takes a lot more to provide the myriad of services. As you look around on Sundays or any other day of the week you will see a lot of folks volunteering to help out. Often the same few people are filling multiple roles. If you are not already volunteering for something I want you to look around and think about where you might fit in, where you might be helpful. I have found that in life, you tend to get out what you put in. The more you put in, the more you get back out of life. The cool part is what you get back is most often multiplied in good and rewarding ways.
Volunteers are needed everywhere: Youth Ed, Baristas, Bookstore, Landscape Crew, Sound Booth, Sunday Snacks, Spirit Group hosts, Rummage Sale, Choir, Unity Foundation Board, the Board of Trustees, the list goes on. Some of the roles that need filling require training (which we provide), but many others are open to anyone jumping into right away.
When you do figure out where you might fit, grab a volunteer, a board member, or one of the staff members and ask them how you get involved. Ask them what they get out of volunteering. You will make new friends, you will get love, satisfaction, and more back. We need you working with love, in service to others. You need you working with love, in service to others. Give it a try. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
