Summer Religious Education Volunteers

JUNE 2024 – AUGUST 2024

In the summer, we would like to give our regular Sunday morning RE volunteers a break.  So we will need other volunteers to fill in.  Please take a look at the attached spreadsheet and choose a day or two to volunteer.  Thank you for all that you do! Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RNEVFuNfmYNidezMoCLkJfEhKEVu5DZoBzmSpJZDgpI/edit?usp=sharing

Youth Religious Education Committee

JUNE 2024 – MAY 2025

Our YRE committee is essential to maintaining our Youth RE program.  It will be even more important to have a strong committee as a new DLRE begins at the church.  He will need people to support him and provide institutional knowledge as he settles into his new position at the church. We are looking for members and chairpersons for the YRE Committee. More information on the Chair/Co-chair position and the responsibilities of committee members can be found on the church’s website here: https://uusat.org/youth-religious-education-committee/ If you would like to help, please contact Bridget (dlre@uusat.org)

Religious Education Teachers

SEPTEMBER 2024 – MAY 2025

We are in need of RE Teachers at all levels for next church year beginning in September. Each class meets from 9:30-10:30AM on Sunday morning and each requires 2 adults present at all times.  The available age groups are:

  • Preschool – 1st Grade
  • 2nd Grade – 5th Grade
  • Middle School (6th-8th Grade)
  • High School (9-12th Grade)
  • Playground Monitors (during the worship services)
 
We are looking for volunteers to work with our students 1-2 times per month. Substitute teachers are also always needed. Lesson plans and supplies are all provided and prepped, so there is little preparation required. What we need are people who would like to accompany our young people through their religious education experience. Please contact Bridget (dlre@uusat.org) if interested.

Get Out the Vote Volunteers

NOW – NOVEMBER

Help Get Out the Vote and strengthen Democracy! There are many ways to volunteer: postcards, letters, phone calls, give out literature, provide stamps, register voters, register college students, register high school seniors, attend events, knock on doors, values based conversations, or be an election worker. For more information or to volunteer, email firstuuthevote@uusat.org.

Greeters

ONGOING

Are you looking to get more involved?  Want something with minimal commitment that will have a big impact? The Membership Committee is looking for greeters.  All that is required is the ability to smile warmly and welcome visitors and friends on Sunday mornings prior to services.  This is a great opportunity for both new and old members. We ask for a commitment of one Sunday each month but even that is flexible. Join us in working to continue to improve our radical hospitality! Interested? To volunteer email membership@uusat.org.  

Worship Associates

ONGOING

Add your gifts to the Sunday Service by acting as a Worship Associate.  Assist in the necessary prep work before service, attend the Joys and Sorrows candle segment of Worship, and update the outdoor signage for next week’s theme.  Obligation is no more than once a month. To volunteer email worship@uusat.org.

Aesthetics Team 

ONGOING

 
The Aesthetics Team is seeking new members to assist leadership with overseeing the appearance of the church interior and exterior in order to present a well-designed, pleasant atmosphere to our congregation and guests. If you are interested in serving and have a design/artistic background or just personal flair, please contact aesthetics@uusat.org.

Maintenance Volunteers

ONGOING

The Maintenance Committee desperately needs assistance!  The facility is showing its age, and there is currently only one member working on maintenance projects around the church.  We would like to have a small cadre of ‘semi able-bodied’ folks to help in small projects (like general clean-up, some demolition of existing equipment, small repairs, etc.).  It won’t involve anything too strenuous (or we’d contract it out), but there is a continual stream of things that are needed to prevent larger problems.  Please contact maintenance@uusat.org for more information and to volunteer.

Capital Campaign Co-Chair

ONGOING

Work with the Capital Campaign Committee to plan and implement Campus improvements earmarked during the Capital Campaign fundraising. Training provided. Email capitalcampaign@uusat.org for more information.

Flowers for Sunday Service

ONGOING

If you have a special occasion or person to honor, consider bringing flowers for Sunday services. Sign up online at our Flower SignUp site.

Choir Members & Musicians

ONGOING

If you love to sing or play an instrument, consider joining the choir or playing an instrument in one of our services. The choir is open to new singers at any time. Choir rehearsal takes place every Saturday at 11:00 am and the choir typically performs at 2-3 Worship services per month. For more information, contact our music director at choir@uusat.org.
