Whether you are an Adventurer or a Gardener, we have a fun way for you to connect with like-minded friends.
Volunteer opportunities within our church
Our “Ministry of Service” is dedicated to supporting maximum authentic spiritual growth, and opportunities to render genuine spiritual service for the greater good of all. You can offer your time, your talents or your treasures – two hours or eight times a year – Atlanta Unity wants your love to show in a brand new way – through service to others. We believe all service is an act of devotion to God. See how giving to our children, our elderly, other families, giving to the earth or how sharing a talent with another, can make a difference in your spiritual growth and path. Give of yourself and receive the many blessings of our love in action!
Atlanta Unity’s Magnet Ministries are all about creating passion and joy! These small groups, about 8-10 people who share an interest in a topic, hobby or activity, meet on a regular basis, creating a supportive, trusting environment within which to share their passion, grow, and transform spiritually. Small groups build and strengthen relationships within our spiritual community, by providing a setting in which we can minister to each other, sharing personal needs, concerns, challenges, and joy. Group members then take their new awareness out to the broader community in some form of service that revolves around their “magnet.” Check out the “Bridge” book at the Information Center.
Atlanta Unity is “Green”
Unity Churches International developed an EarthCare Ministry Team to foster the awareness of our spiritual oneness with our Earth home and to promote active care of creation. They have designed an EarthCare Congregation Program to assist congregations in integrating an earth-oriented spirituality into their ministry using seven steps: Pray-Vision-Inspire-Learn-Take Action-Share-Renew. Taking part in this program,we invite you to bring cardboard and paper items from home and deposit in the bin outside in the back parking lot. The church receives a small stipend in exchange. We also have an ongoing fundraiser while we collect used cell phones, ink and toner cartridges. If you are interested in joining the EarthCare Ministry at Atlanta Unity please contact Beth Remmes at 770-715-4525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whatever your talents and interests, there is a place for you, to help people make friends, touch lives and build a loving community.
If you have questions about any of these Ministry Teams, we are here to help. Please call Unity Atlanta: 770-441-0585 x205
Our Adult Education classes are usually 2-6 weeks long, and are taught on either Sunday mornings at 10:00. The classes are based on books that follow the teachings of Unity, or, are in alignment with Unity principles, and are available to deepen our understanding of our spiritual selves.
The Bookstore Angels keep our bookstore, The Wisdom Well, running smoothly on Sunday mornings and for special events. The Bookstore Angels can assist with any purchases and are quick with a smile. Their contribution of time and talent supports the Wisdom Well as a service to our congregation and a revenue source for the church.
The Unity Atlanta Prayer Chaplains provide affirmative prayer and support for Atlanta Unity members, visitors and friends. Chaplains share the gift of unconditional love by listening intently, praying affirmatively and holding everything that is shared in the strictest confidence. Chaplains are available after both services to provide one-on-one prayer; chaplains also respond to written requests for prayer placed in the Prayer Box in the Church Lobby. Prayer chaplains are also available for phone/email support and for hospital visits; please contact the Church Office to coordinate.
THE UNITY ATLANTA CELEBRATION CHOIR
The Unity Atlanta Celebration Choir has a well-earned reputation for excellence and is a powerfully uplifting presence in our church. The choir presents a wide variety of selections from gospel to new thought to contemporary music, all of which deepen the “God experience” at Sunday services.
If you would like to invite music into your life in a way that is tremendously satisfying, give us a try on any Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. (except during the month of July). You will be warmly welcomed.
Throughout the year, we have various Outreach Projects. The Hunger Walk and the collection of school supplies for a nearby school are two examples.
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” I Peter 4:10
Unity Atlanta has several church-wide events throughout the year. This wonderful group of people take charge with planning and execution. From decorating, to planning menus, to coming up with themes.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by holding the hands a few inches above the body and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us. We offer several modalities of energy every Sunday morning.
This great team prepares the coffee and snacks on Sunday mornings. The church and different volunteer teams provide the food and the church provides the coffee. We set everything up and make the Fellowship Hall inviting and ‘hospitable’. We enjoy creating a space for our church family to come in and enjoy a cup of coffee together!
The Information Center is the hub of all information about the church. The Information Team greets new guests and can answer questions about different ministries, events and classes held at Unity Atlanta.

This loving ministry team teaches Unity Principles to children with challenging personal circumstances, who reside at Laurel Heights, a private child and adolescent behavioral health facility.

We can use your help answering the phone, doing basic filing, creating visitor packets, making copies, helping with mailings, etc. Office Angels really do make a difference!
WELCOME TEAM(Ushers and Greeters)
Visitors to Unity Atlanta are warmly greeted by members of the Welcome Team upon entering the sanctuary, so we are often the first face they see and the first hand they shake. Extending a friendly “welcome” to visitors and members is paramount in demonstrating the love and acceptance we live and teach at Atlanta Unity. Other member duties include handing out bulletins & new member packets, taking collection and being a resource for those with questions or in need. Member commitments are usually one Sunday a month and we “welcome” all who choose to serve with us.
YOUTH AND FAMILY
The mission of the Youth and Family Ministry is to provide children from 3 years of age, through high school, with a safe and nurturing environment, while learning and applying spiritual principles. Using curricula published by Unity, and two teachers for each classroom, the innate wisdom and divinity of each child is drawn forth.
As an official Unity EarthCareMinistry, we raise awareness of our spiritual oneness with our Earth home and we promote active care of creation. We express Unity’s belief in our oneness with all divine life in ways that directly impact our planet.
