Many Hands Make Work Light
Thank you to the many hands contributing to the day-to-day activities at Unity of Bloomington. We invite you share your time and energy. Here's how!
Youth and FAmily Ministries
We have a magnetic Youth and Family Ministry program that is grounded in Truth Principles and connected to everyday life. Our work is fueled by Spirit, which inspires an explosion of community participation and deepens the spiritual experience of all who are involved. If you love children of any age and have time and energy to spare, you will find this to be a most gratifying Team with which to work.
Music and Sound
Our music program has many moving parts: solo and ensemble singers, choristers, keyboardists, drummers, other instrumentalists, sound technicians, and PowerPoint clickers. We have songwriters and folks who lead music with the children’s program! If you have a gift or interest in music and/or sound, please let us know so that we can include you on this Ministry Team.
These folks greet people, distribute programs before the Sunday service, and help collect the love offering. Volunteers for this Team are asked to sign up to help once every 4-8 weeks. Arriving 10-15 minutes before the service starts on their Sunday, it helps if they are naturally friendly and enjoy smiling!
food and fellowship
We host community potlucks four to five times each year. That’s when our Hospitality Team is indispensable. Everyone brings food to share, but if you want to setup, decorate, help in the kitchen or cleanup after the meal, we would be happy to add you to this group.
Outreach & PUblic Service
An important part of living the Truth that we know is service beyond our own spiritual family. This Team has made and collected items for people in need, raised money for a far-away Tibetan monastery, and participated in interfaith services and projects. We welcome your interest, energy, and ideas to this Team.
In-reach and helping angels
We often think of ourselves as a spiritual family and like any family, we want to take care of our own. This Team is available to coordinate the any needed help, such as the need for transportation, a move, or food brought in after an illness, injury or death in the family.
Sometimes we need coverage in the Unity office. If you are available to answer the phone, water the plants or get familiar with the copier, your occasional assistance in this capacity is welcome. Additionally, we may need volunteers to change the message on the outdoor sign on Rogers Street. We supply the text and the letters. You do the work!
building and facilities
We have an amazing facilities manager who works with us, but a few times a year, he needs some help. Spring gardening, fall leaf-raking, major renovation projects all give us opportunities to pitch in and get our hands dirty, literally. This Team helps us maintain our stately, mid-century modern building and the beautiful grounds that surround it.
