Do you know someone who is well-organized, enjoys meeting people and helping them make connections with others and in activities that nurture their spirit?

The Membership Coordinator welcomes visitors and newcomers each week and helps them navigate the path to membership and deeper engagement within our fellowship. This person will be well organized, self-motivated, and highly efficient in developing and executing programs with the Minister, Administrator, Board, and others to welcome visitors and encourage members to volunteer appropriately. S/he is enthusiastic about meeting people and helping them to find places in our congregation and is also passionate about involving congregants in activities that nurture their spirit.

Work hours are 10 hrs/week and fairly flexible. They include Sunday mornings (8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) with one Sunday off each quarter, weekly meetings with minister and monthly staff meetings. Free childcare is available on Sunday mornings. Pay is $20/hr.

UUFSD welcomes all persons regardless of race, gender, religion or affectional orientation.

Hot Cocoa Bar, Gift Wrapping, and Playground Fun on Sat, Dec 23

Join The Willage at UUFSD (“Families Helping Families”) this Saturday, Dec. 23 from 2-4 pm to wrap Christmas gifts and enjoy a hot cocoa bar. We will also have supervision on the playground for the littles — this makes it way easier than trying to wrap gifts at home on the sly! If you are a “Grannabe” who would like to spend time with the littles, you are welcome to join us. If you are wrapping, bring supplies and if you feel like it, a “no judgment” snack to share.
