VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
Introducing our August volunteer of the month, Julie Zumwalt! She and her family are Charter Members of UGC, now going on 20 years of participation and volunteering!. Julie has studied Unity principles her entire life. She and Kurtis, her husband attended Unity services in Sacramento and Auburn. They were very excited and felt it was a blessing when Unity of the Gold Country became a reality in their home community.
Being dedicated to our youth, Julie started the Mini-Kids (toddlers and preschoolers) programs right away. She worked with the little ones by transforming a storage closet into a classroom! She has served as a member of the Platform Assistant Team for about many years, was part of the first meetings of the Women's Sacred Circle, trained in the first chaplaincy training, was the Ministerial Assistant for almost 2 years...2003-2005 for Rev. Sloan and served on the Board of Trustees for 6 years...2013-2019, where she served as secretary and vice-president. Julie has consistently filled in wherever a need presents itself.
Julie states, "Unity teachings have helped me understand the meaning of love and the unity of all people, seeing the light of Christ in each person and the miracle of having a group of people pray for my highest good and want to share that with others. I also want to continue to be of service. Finally, belonging to UGC helps us seek answers to our spiritual questions and recharges my faith."
Julie adds, "I can't say enough about volunteering at UGC! Volunteering creates community and relationship within this spiritual community. Friendships are the natural outcome and that is the greatest gift!!!"
Dearest Julie, we so love and appreciate you!
