Unity Prayer Chaplains*
The Unity Prayer Chaplains participate in a comprehensive annual training program to prepare them to serve our congregation through prayer. As they maintain a personal prayer life, the Prayer Chaplains: acknowledge and call on the presence of God; lovingly listen; pray from the heart and hold in confidence what is shared. Prayer Chaplains are available on Sundays to pray with anyone who requests prayer, and during the week via a telephone call to the church. Each member also receives a monthly wellness call from their assigned chaplain. The Prayer Chaplains contribute to our church community by providing a confidential, calming, sacred space for prayer.
