I formally joined the UCOH family in 2015 and have volunteered in several areas since. 

Currently, I volunteer on the Labyrinth team, Childcare Team for Sunday service, and Pew Fairy Team. The Sunday morning childcare team was my first volunteer venture. From there, I joined the Pew Fairies, and later added the Labyrinth Team.

Seasonally, I have helped with decorating the Church for the Christmas season and have also worked in the Front Office where I performed different tasks, including answering the phones. 

I believe it takes a village to run any business or organization. I like being helpful, being a part of a team that collaborates to accomplish necessary work. Being a Pew Fairy allows me peaceful time alone in the Sanctuary, as does working in the Labyrinth. On the other hand, childcare enmeshes me in the social fabric of the church. I enjoy the balance. 

Unity has so many offerings: classes, study groups, exercise groups, support groups, services, prayer team, etc. It seems there is something to attend to every need or want. I am happy to be a UCOH member and I particularly love the Sunday services!

Congratulations, Carole. The UCOH Community loves that you have made UCOH your spiritual home, and we continue to be blessed by your presence and and sacred service.
