Aside from the many social and outreach activities listed in other areas, we have many opportunities for our members to help “run the business” of our church. These volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization, doing everything from the little one-time task to substantial on-going responsibilities. Without this army of volunteers, our church would simply cease to function. Please find a way to serve that suits your interests. For more information on any of these opportunities contact the UUCC office at (704) 366-8623.
These technologically savvy people maintain and support the use of audio & video equipment. They run the sound booth in the back of the sanctuary for services and other events.
Building/Maintenance & Grounds Improvement
These handy folks assist with maintenance tasks around our building and on our grounds, including carpentry, painting, plumbing, and small “fix-it” tasks inside; and gardening, landscaping and general yard work outside.
Kitchen, Coffee, and Other Culinary Support
Food is a crucial ingredient to our social activities. We need: members to contribute to potlucks, volunteer chefs to cook for large groups, coffee servers on Sunday mornings for both services, those who can manage kitchen organization and menu planning, etc.
Be part of the musical experience of the church: sing in the choir, play the hand chimes, enroll your child in the children’s choir, play an instrument, or be a featured musical guest at one of our Sunday services. To learn about opportunities to share your musical gifts with our church community, contact John Herrick.
The church office needs assistance with all sorts of office tasks, including data entry, photo copying, putting together “Voices,” front desk coverage, preparing mailings, answering the phones. We can also use volunteers to help with accounting tasks, library science and human resources. To volunteer contact Alesia Hutto, Office Administrator, at email@example.com.
Each Sunday, a volunteer is responsible for unlocking the church before services and locking the church once most people have left after the last service. The openers make sure the main doors are unlocked and all interior doors are unlocked and lights are on. The closer locks all doors, makes sure windows are closed and lights are off.
Visitor & New Member Relations
This vital group of people helps to ensure that our visitors are welcomed and new members feel connected. Their responsibilities could include: Visitor Table set-up and staffing on Sundays, greeting visitors, making introductions, providing information, and supporting new member activities. To volunteer contact Kelly Greene, Membership Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These folks take turns on different Sundays and different services to ensure that the sanctuary is “ready” for the service, to seat latecomers, to coordinate the passing of the offering baskets, to make an attendance count, perform a money count, and clean up after the service.
