Members and friends of Central Unitarian Church like to put their faith into action, because it is only by giving of ourselves that we gain greater meaning, fellowship and joy in life. If you are new to our congregation, there are easy ways to get started putting your skills to work, and getting to know some great people in the process.
Chalice Lighting, Coffee Hour and Flowers
One individual or family lights the chalice for the service.
Serve the coffee and refreshments that grace the end of every Sunday service. We provide complete, detailed instructions in the church kitchen, and will pair you with someone who has done it before.
Remember loved ones, or honor someone, or to celebrate achievements, provide flowers for the Sunday service. You can pick and choose the date you want to volunteer– calendars are posted in the vestibule bulletin board for your convenience.
For the musically-minded, the CUC choir offers a chance to perform regularly during Sunday Service under the leadership of a professional director. Rehearsals are Monday evenings at CUC starting at 7:30 pm.
After service in early December, the Religious Education committee stages this art-and-crafts event for children and adults. Volunteers learn individual crafts and then help others to master them.
This annual event in the fall raises money for CUC while providing low-income families in the area with valuable merchandise at deep discounts. Volunteers sort and price goods, set up the site and manage the 3-day sale.
Teach Religious Education
Volunteers teach all classes from pre-K through high school, and many of our adult courses as well, within a structured program and complete curriculum provided by our Director of Lifespan Faith Development.
In the spirit of hospitality, we field a team of five volunteers every Sunday to greet newcomers, usher and take the collection. It’s a terrific way to meet like-minded people on Sunday morning.
And that’s just the start! If you want help getting started, contact the Membership Committee.
