Sunday Volunteer Team
There are many ways to serve at Unity Church and, by extension, serve the community. Here are just some of the areas where we always need extra support:
Sunday Manager – Headed by Theresa Butler-Pentecost
Revs Patricia and Robin have a very hectic schedule on Sunday mornings and need someone to serve as their “right hand” every week. The Sunday Manager is the portal through which everything passes on Sunday morning. If more seating needs to be arranged, the Sunday Manager finds the people to make it happen. If a last-minute change needs to be communicated to the Music Director and the A/V staff, the Sunday Manager gets it done.
Greeter/Usher – Headed by Sue Bezdziecki
Every church has ushers. At Unity Church of Venice, ushering is just a small part of the fun! Our Greeters/Ushers are the first people to meet newcomers and in that respect become the face of Unity. Gregarious, open-hearted people should seriously consider stepping up to this task!
Welcome Team/Ambassador – Headed by Linda Loos
Beyond being Greeter and Ushers, there’s yet another level of service to our newcomers. The Welcome Team is responsible for seeing to it that any questions newcomers may have get answered. The Welcome Team tells them about Unity, our staff, our schedules. . . virtually anything a newcomer may question. We always want to extend a warm, welcoming hand to our visitors and newcomers.
Audio/Visual Team – Headed by Nathan Figueroa
Back in our school days, we all remember the A/V folks being the “nerds” who ran the projectors, cameras, sound systems, etc., in the classrooms. This is a whole new level of A/V! Unity Church of Venice’s A/V Team keeps us on the cutting edge of church technology, and is on the front-end of every church event. They make the Ministers and Music team look good and sound good. They’re responsible for sound, music playback, video livestreaming, audio recording, graphic design and are an integral part of our new, state-of-the-art website!
Daily Word Reader – Headed by Lin Richard
It’s as simple as it sounds. The Daily Word is a long-standing tradition at Unity. Based in Unity Village, The Daily Word is a source of serenity and transformation for millions. Each Sunday our Daily Word Reader simply recites the word for the day along with the accompanying lesson and scripture during the service. Sign up sheet in the hallway.
God’s Café/Hospitality – Headed by Marge and Brian Smail
Unity is blessed with an abundance of excellent cooks and we can always use more! But a part of providing for our Sunday Fellowship involves everything from preparation, setup, serving, refilling and cleaning-up in Fellowship Hall (God’s Café).
Bookstore – Headed by Nancy Stone
The Bookstore is always in need of volunteer clerks/cashiers. If you’ve had the chance to visit, you know that our bookstore (Spiritual Oasis) is a special corner of our campus! Filled with New Thought reading materials, sacred artifacts, spiritual gift items and many other wonderful things, it allows for a pleasant and gratifying experience for volunteers.
