  • Pastoral Care, Life Coaching, Spiritual Direction

    • Pastoral Care is designed to help you develop a vision of who you want to be, to clarify and energize your dreams and goals, and to develop a way to achieve your goals. Problem solving a particular situation is also a part of this. Sky uses an appreciative, positive, accepting and energizing approach in his pastoral care. Sky's coaching and counseling are available through his work at Kanawha Pastoral Counseling Center.

  • Weddings and Unions

    • Sky is available to perform weddings, unions, and commitment services, and to facilitate unique rituals or services by request on an as-needed basis.

  • Baptism

    • Unity sees all life as sacred, and that we are loved children of God. Baptism at Unity is the celebration of a life. Birth and all life transitions are celebrated. Contact Sky to develop a ritual that is just right for you.


  • Funerals and Memorial Services

    • The transition of death is an important and sometimes difficult time. We are here to help our friends and members honor the life of their loved one and help begin the emotional process of letting go and coming to peace with the transition.

  • Hospital Visitations and Emergencies

    • Sky and our pastoral care team are available for hospital or emergency home visits to UKV members and friends on an as- needed basis. Please let us know if you have a need for a visit!
