Volunteer Opportunity

Welcome To Unity In The Gold Country
Volunteers:  Love and Faith In Action


Sandy Spurgeon 2


We celebrate Sandy Spurgeon as our first Volunteer of the Month in 2020! 
Sandy has been attending Unity for about 23 years.  She attended Unity of Walnut Creek before moving to Grass Valley about 12-13 years ago, becoming an official member of UGC within the first year of attending services.
Sandy found Light at the end of a very dark tunnel through the Unity experience.  She discovered a profound shift in her life and found the loving and supportive spiritual community she had longed for.
Sandy has a background of volunteering including being an active volunteer for Hospice of Contra Costa County; a volunteer chaplain at Walnut Creek Unity; and became an ordained minister through Reunion Ministries. Unity of the Gold Country is blessed with Sandy's presence and volunteering spirit!  
She began her volunteering with UGC taking over for her as a chaplain coordinator where she continues to serve. She has also served two terms on the Board of Trustees and was president for a portion of that time.  While on the BOT she led UGC through important transitions including: Rev Joe's retirement and the selection of our new minister; the negotiations for the purchase of the building; the visioning process; the capital campaign and other issues of the times.
Currently, she loves to facilitate the book groups during our 7 week programs and offers chaplain training and serves as chaplain for Sunday services.  We are blessed on the occasions Sandy is our guest speaker at a Sunday service.
In Sandy's words directly, "My experiences at Unity have led me to open my heart more fully, to love myself and others more deeply and know God in all things. It has given me strong sense of community that has truly touched my heart and blessed my life and I am so grateful."
Sandy, we are so grateful you are a part of the UGC community!
