Unity Teams

Greeter/Usher Team 
What could be better than receiving hugs and love as part of your Unity service?  That is what members of the Greeters team experience each Sunday.  We welcome visitors and long-timers alike to our church home during regular and special events.  Greeting is one of the best areas of service for newcomers because it is a great way to meet new people. You will also hand out Welcome Packets during the service to 1st time visitors, and collect the offering.

Helping Hands for the Houseless

Our newest community outreach project. Each Wednesday, a team of 4 to 5, lovingly prepare sack lunches for our neighborhood houseless community through Beacon PDX. “Sharing our Love as a community by connecting with people in need (food insecure group of houseless campers) and those that serve them.”
