UUCS has many volunteer opportunities available for our members and attending friends. Here are some of our current needs. Please let us know if you have any questions. If your team or group is in need of volunteers, please submit your request to be included here to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Memorial Service Team Leaders Needed
The Pastoral Care Team is seeking one, preferably two people to partner as leads for the important position of Memorial Service Team Leaders. Can it be YOU?
If you have ever attended a memorial at our location, you can appreciate how special and meaningful these are. However, don’t be intimidated. Amy Howard and Joan Nelson, the recent past leaders, leave behind a clear set of guidelines for the team leaders to follow. It is a great way to offer support for our community and learn something new that enriches your life along the way.
We are always seeking members to join the PCT core team or to volunteer when help is needed. If you can help in any way or have questions, please contact Ann Donahue at: email@example.com.
Want to help Out the Church but Are Low on Time?
Putting the songs on the TV during the service may be the perfect opportunity! The PowerPoint is done and all you need to do is push a button to change slides. Training is available. This is really a very easy thing to do and First Service help is very much needed. Please call Kathryn to volunteer (509) 934-5930.
The Art Team needs YOU!
Do you enjoy the works of art that adorn our Friendship Hall? Would you like to help bring more beautiful and interesting works to the church? If so, the Art Team needs YOU! We have 2-3 major exhibits during the year, plus the December craft fair. We meet for approximately 1 hour a month on a weekday morning. Please contact Sandy Horn, Sandyhorn2002@yahoo.com or Sue Wotring, firstname.lastname@example.org if this opportunity to serve the congregation speaks to you.
The Program Council creates and implements opportunities for members to engage with what it means to be a UU through workshops, classes, small groups, etc., and to provide support to leaders of existing programming. There are two members of the team who are continuing into the 2018 – 2019 church year and we are looking for 3 – 4 more members for the team. Please contact Erin Fitzgerald at email@example.com drop by the Welcome Table to discuss the team.
Dedicated Readers to Help With the Book Carts
We need volunteers to put out the book carts on Sunday for the summer. Can you commit to pulling out the books at 10:15 am (directly after the first service) or come early to the 11 am service to do it before claiming your seat. Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org sign up.
Calling all Sextons!
According to Nationwide, “smash and grab” car break-ins are among “the most common forms of larceny in the U.S.” Church parking lots, including ours, are vulnerable during services because cars are typically left unattended for more than an hour at a time. Our parking lot is particularly vulnerable, since it’s readily accessible from the street and surrounding areas.
Our Sexton program is designed to deter “smash and grab” thefts and other potential crimes that might occur on the premises during services and other church-sponsored events. Our ability to protect our property, however, depends on the number of volunteers we have. And right now, we don’t have enough.
We need more people to stand up.
Please help us help YOU… and help realize our motto: “Working Together. Looking Out for Each Other.” Email Phyllis Thayer at Phyl2mail@gmail.com or simply ask one of the Sextons (we’re the friendly folks in the day-glo yellow vests you see in the lot on Sundays) – we’ll be happy to fill you in and welcome you to our group!
