What Volunteering Means....


Sacred Service Angel of the Month

I joined UIM in 1985, when we had our services at the Masonic Lodge in Larkspur - we called it “the church in the box”, as we had to set up and take down all the items for our service each Sunday.

My fist volunteer job was Volunteer Coordinator, finding volunteers for all the various assignments.  Then I became involved in the fundraising for our new church at Hamilton, working with Patricia Keel.  From that assignment, I became part of the Helping Hands/Loving Kindness, giving people rides to doctor appointments, etc. Also, we help with serving dinner to the homeless in San Rafael.   I’m still doing that as well as being on the Welcome Team and working in the bookstore on the fifth Sunday of the month.

Volunteering at Unity in Marin is a gift to me - I have met some wonderful people, and it gives me great pleasure to serve.

Volunteer Welcome Table

Your help with welcoming newcomers to our church is needed. We have heard from numerous people who have said they did not feel welcomed when they first attended Unity. Imagine the people who may not have returned for this reason.
Please join us at the welcome table for a short 15 minutes after one of the services to help make our newcomers and people who may have been coming for many months feel welcomed. This commitment is once a month for 15 minutes. It is a wonderful way to meet new and established members!
For more information, please come to the Welcome Table in the courtyard.

Assistant needed for Rev. Pat

Rev. Pat Palmer is director of our Youth and Family Ministry and also the Service Ministries. Both of these are really enjoyable roles; however, there is sometimes an overwhelm of computer tasks. If you are pretty knowledgeable in Google Docs, making flyers, and using Excel, your help would be hugely appreciated! Sometimes there is involvement other than computer creations too.

(Plus - Pat likes to laugh and it would be great to have someone to do that with, as we ‘get done’ the various things that come up in the day-to-day functioning of our spiritual community!) To meet for coffee and talk about whether you might like to help, contact Pat at everevolving@earthlink.net
