Our Ministry supports the environment of Unity Church of Greater Rochester by maintaining conditions and standards of beauty and order in our physical environment by maintaining the church grounds and gardens.

Our photographer captures the beautiful moments of our church so that others may experience with their eyes what is felt in the heart.
Volunteers welcome and provide hospitality and directions to all who enter Unity Church of Greater Rochester. We offer a warm smile and warm hug or handshake. We answer questions and, when there are new people, we have them put their names and contact information in the registration book and give them a name tag so others can address them by name. We help them find their way around and answer questions about Unity and our church.
Our library provides materials on Unity, New Thought and New Age philosophy and history for free circulation. Church members may sign out materials and are asked to return them in a timely fashion. Unity book donations to the library are welcome.
Our mission is to bring spiritually uplifting music to the congregation. The church has a song leader who joyfully leads the congregation in hymns. Music resounds in the souls of us all.

A Nominating Committee initiates a search for at least two qualified candidates for the Board of Trustees. The committee consists of the minister, three active members selected at the annual meeting by the membership, and a representative of the current Board of Trustees.
Prayer Chaplain Team
Awakening to the Christ within ourselves through prayer, we affirm the divine identity in others so they can see it in themselves and receive its blessings. Chaplains are available each Sunday after the service to provide one-on-one prayer. The team meets regularly to pray and plan activities that support the prayer life and spiritual well-being of the congregation. Our Prayer Chaplains visit members in their homes, hospitals, or other settings and make phone calls to provide prayer and spiritual support. Chaplains receive extensive training
Publicity & Social Media
The team seeks to reach out to the community and publicize our church teachings, activities, and events. Our tools include the website, the newsletter, the Facebook page, the YouTube video channel, and various print materials.
Special Events Social Committee
The committee plans and implements social events, involving set-up, food preparation and serving. Love offerings from the congregation for refreshments supplement the church’s budget for the Social Fund, which helps to pay for large events such as our Thanksgiving dinner and summer picnic. The Social Committee organizes holiday events each year and assists with occasional luncheons between Sunday service and Congregational meetings or special events.
Sunday Offering Counters
Counters oversee the inflow of love and prosperity that our church brings forth when we gather as one. Our counters work in pairs.
Ushers provide a welcoming and facilitating presence during worship and special services. The ushers are to make sure the sanctuary is warm and welcoming looking. The lights are adjusted during the meditation. They welcome congregants as they come into the sanctuary with warm smile. They take up the Sunday offering at the end of the service. Most importantly, the ushers are part of a team with greeters to welcome people to a spiritual experience at Unity Church of Greater Rochester. Volunteers are trained and work in pairs. They are scheduled through a coordinator.
The mission of the Welcoming Ministry is to reach out to visitors and new congregants, offering a warm welcome to our services, facilitating the growth of relationships and offering the opportunity for deepening involvement in church life. The Welcoming Ministry works in concert with the ministers and other church volunteer ministries, including Greeters, Ushers, Platform Assistants, Publicity, etc.
Our education program provides a caring, nurturing, friendly, welcoming environment for children of all ages and teens. Vetted volunteers help our youth develop by teaching Unity principles and curriculum through prayer and the arts: story, drama, puppets, and visual arts. Help teens grow through discussion and study with peers. Volunteers assist our ministry leader in the Sunday School on an as-needed basis.
