Volunteering

Everything you will experience at UTUUC is support by dedicated volunteers. Volunteering is not only a great way to get to know new people in a fun way, it is also an essential step in feeling connected to our community. 

We understand that people are able to contribute time and energy at different levels and at different times in their busy lives and hope that members and friends will help as they are able. There are many different levels of volunteering that include a wide range of time commitments, roles and needs. 

Fall is Coming!

Sunday mornings experience a big shift from the leisurely and low key rhythm of summer to the hustling and bustling rhythm of fall as the new program year begins and the normal rhythms and routines of congregational life return. As members and friends return from rest and relaxation in August, we begin to prepare for an exciting year ahead. Many helping hands are needed to keep our community thriving, so please, jump in as you are able! The following opportunities need YOUR support.

Sunday Morning Greeters. If you would enjoying greeting people before service and passing out the order of service ONE Sunday a month, join a hospitality team! Training and treats will be provided on Sunday, September 25 at 9:30 for new teams. For more information or to sign up, contact greeters@unitytemple.org.

Name Tag Board Helper. Do you have a few extra minutes before service once a month to give the UTUUC name tag board a little TLC? Name tags create a warm and inviting environment for all and with regular attention to the board, we will be able to better find and use them. Your friendly membership director cannot manage this task alone, please contact tlewis@unitytemple.org. if you can help.

Fall Engagement Fair Team. One of the best ways to learn about all the amazing things happening in the coming year at UTUUC is attending the fall fair during Coffee Hour. We need volunteers to help decorate, set-up and breakdown on Sunday, September 25. Contact tlewis@unitytemple.org if you can help.

First Sunday Potluck Team. Salads, sandwiches, desserts and friends - everyone's invited to enjoy lunch right after church on October 2 and November 6! We'll need set-up and clean-up helpers, flowers for the tables, and YOUR dishes to share. Contact firstsunday@unitytemple.org if you can help.

2017 UTUUC Photo Directory. Yay, everyone loves the photo directory! It’s like having a scrapbook and phone directory all in one. Creating an awesome photo directory takes time and volunteers. If you would like to learn more about helping with registration on Sunday mornings in September and during the photo shoots in October, please contact tlewis@unitytemple.org.
