Learn about our volunteer committees, activities, and congregational management.
This is one of our larger fundraisers where Members contribute items and/or services. There is a large dinner party for the kickoff event, which includes a live announcer for bidding, live music, and silent auction items on display.
We coordinate the caring activities of our congregation when needed. We are a community network of advocacy, support, and information for those who are in need of help and for those who wish to volunteer to help. We can always use people who’d like to deliver meals, provide rides, or help UUFCC members in other ways.
Diving Deep is a women’s book club that meets on Zoom the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. We choose our books once a year, and the person who recommends the book generally leads the discussion. New members and visitors are welcome at any meeting.
Held on third Thursdays of the month: Join us for a community potluck each month in the UUFCC Fellowship Hall! This is a wonderful time out to connect with UUFCC friends, eat a delicious meal, and celebrate birthdays of the month.
The Freedom Seder is an annual intergenerational potluck dinner and Passover service. Family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues will be warmly welcomed. It is a wonderful night of fellowship that restores your hope and renews your commitment to work for justice.
Every Wednesday evening from 6 to 11PM we play games in Fellowship Hall. We have all kinds of games, but we usually play modern (Euro-style) board games. We don’t attack or eliminate our “opponents.” To win, we cooperate with and even help them. Everyone is welcome, and we gladly teach new gamers.
Recognizing the many details involved in creating our Sunday morning experience, we rely on Hospitality Teams to keep things running smoothly. Teams of about 20 individuals work together to greet visitors, usher, provide refreshments, set up for coffee hour, and tear down. Each team helps for four consecutive Sundays, roughly twice a year. Many hands make light work, and it is fun, too!
We welcome, reach out to, and assist visitors and new members in becoming familiar with the fellowship and congregational activities. We compile materials to inform people about our congregation, hosting monthly Getting to Know UU, and the bi-annual UU 101 workshop, and following up with any inquiries or needs of new attendees and members.
We meet biweekly on 1st and 3rd Thursday afternoons. Each attendee is free to share a memory with the group or just listen. Our purpose is to encourage people to record their memories to share with friends and family and to develop a sense of fellowship with one another. Any and all are welcome.
We sell vegetables, fruits, and homemade jams and pies after Sunday services in the summer and the fall, and the proceeds go to UUFCC. On occasion we need help with gardening, managing the vegetables, and keeping things in order. You can also volunteer to harvest before church on Sunday mornings, and/or set up tables and help with distribution after service.
Small Group Ministry
Our Small Group Ministry program deepens and broadens personal spiritual growth. A group usually consists of about 10 members. Goals are to foster a safe space for listening and sharing, spiritual exploration, personal connections, and a caring community.
Fellowship members participate in collecting, sorting, pricing, and displaying donations before the sale, which is on the third Saturday in August. During the sale, people help customers, collect money, and pack up goods. It is a great way to get to know people!
