There in nothing small in the service of God… — Frances de Sales
Unity Church in the Gardens depends on the enthusiasm and commitment to service of our many active sacred servers, who are the heartbeat of our community.
You may be asked to serve on a ministry team. If you say “yes,” we know that you will find serving this ministry to be a wonderful opportunity to stretch and grow spiritually. If you are not ready, we will respect your “no.”
Programs and activities in this ministry happen because people like you say “yes” to leadership and service. As we share talents, ideas, time and energy, we are abundantly blessed in return.
My life is abundant and I share my abundance by serving others.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold… service was joy. — Rabindranath Tagore
