Volunteer Teams

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."   -Mahatma Gandhi

We all have sacred gifts and wonderful talents to offer one another. These offerings are woven together to create a tapestry of kindness and compassion...a community of love.

We have a thriving volunteer program that offers a place for anyone seeking to share their talents and passion. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our office by calling (770) 534-0949 or by emailing unityofgville@gmail.com. We look forward to talking with you about any of our volunteer teams.
