SACRED SErvice

What is SEVA?

SEVA, (the Art of Sacred Service), a concept found in many spiritual traditions, refers to the act of selflessly serving others from the heart, not the mind. SEVA embodies the truth of “When you give, you receive.”  SEVA puts the needs of others before our own, and offers our time, skills, and resources in service to humanity.

Benefits of serving include:

  • Connect with the Community
  • Expressing One’s Gifts & Talents
  • Growing & Learning

“Many hands make light work.” Our intention as a family and community is to have more than enough volunteers so that everyone can have fun serving. Ideally, we each commit to once a month (1-2 hours), however, once a quarter, every 2 weeks, or whatever fits your schedule enables the blessing of SEVA!

Volunteer Opportunities

Positions like those listed below require training. Ways you can support:

Welcome Table

Those who volunteer for the welcome table arrive at 9:30 am to  set up the welcome table. After setting up, they host the table before service, then pack up and put away the welcome table directly after service.

Door Greeter (Meditation)

This SEVA volunteer arrives by 9:45 am to greet those entering the sanctuary. At 10 am, you will close the Sanctuary door and from 10-10:28am tend the door, preventing disruption of the Meditation Service. After meditation, you will open the door for those arriving for Sunday Service. Time Requirement: approximately 45 minutes.

These individuals must be members of our community and attend our regular service. They will be called up to circulate the collection baskets. Once the offering is complete, two Usher Angels will reconcile the deposit and submit a report to the Treasurer. Time requirement: Approximately 30 minutes per Sunday.
