  • Meeting attendees as they exit the Sanctuary in the receiving line.

  • Receiving genuine praise, appreciation, support and love for your service.

  • Ensuring you’ll be at church early enough to enjoy praying in/centering with the prayer chaplains and minister, hearing the special musicians warm up, getting warm greetings from the sound team, ushers and others that are there early to also serve.

The Worship Assistant team is always welcoming additional confident speakers into this vital service-to-community role.  Please speak to a current WA to learn more about this opportunity to lovingly serve the Unity congregation. Let the WA team leader know if you would like to be trained to join the team regularly or as a sub on occasion.
