Sunday Volunteer Teams (Thoreau)
Serving on Sundays is a fast & easy way to get to know folks and to make a quick and positive difference.
Greeters provide a welcoming presence at each Sunday morning service.Greeters arrive early to set up the Welcome Table and make sure all is ready for our guests. They hand out the orders of service, welcome people to the church, and help them feel at home. This is a great way to meet other members of our community. Greeters also collect and count the Sunday offering.
Hospitality volunteers bring snacks to share once a month. We gather for snacks and conversation after the service in the fellowship area. With other church folk, you can help put out the food and be sure the kitchen area is clean after the hospitality hour.
Sunday Set Up volunteers come early about once a month to be sure the sanctuary area is ready for the Sunday service, which includes putting out signs and setting up the microphone.
Worship Associates are a team of volunteers who work to ensure that every Sunday service flows smoothly. These Associates also lead the service when the campus minister is away on a Sunday.
A.V. Team prepares and runs ProPresenter to support our Worship Experience and help out with the sound board.
Songleaders – Each week a few members of the congregation come early to sing through the songs for that day so that they can help lead the congregational singing during the worship service. Anyone is welcome to join us for this informal practice. Come to the piano in the sanctuary about 9:40 AM to join us.
Ad Hoc Music – Participation opportunities are available for those with previous music training. These individuals and groups perform occasionally throughout the year and during the summer months by audition. On Sunday morning, ask for our Music Director Michael Crouch, or email the office and we will connect you.
RE Team – It is an exciting and rewarding experience. Teachers generally teach in rotating teams. Teaching gives you the opportunity to be with the younger segment of our community, to make an important contribution to the whole, to learn more about Unitarian Universalism, and to meet other adults in our community. While all members are encouraged to help with the programs for children and youth, parents are expected to give a little extra to make the program excellent. We ask parents and caregivers to teach several times each quarter or to otherwise support the religious education program. Our volunteer Religious Education Director can help you find the best place for you to help. .
