Greeters (Sundays)

Smiles Wanted! We need volunteers to greet visitors each Sunday. Volunteers encourage new visitors to fill out a “Visitors Card” and invite them to stay for Gathering Hour after service. We assist new visitors with children by identifying members of the RE program, and tell them about classroom locations.

Kitchen Volunteers (Sundays)

Ushers (Sundays)


We always welcome new additions to Team Usher at UUFSD. A warm smile and an urge to help is all that is required to volunteer.  Ushers hand out music books and our weekly Order of Service at the Sunday services. They also are responsible for the collection baskets. It requires arriving approximately 20 minutes early for service. Helping just one or two Sundays a year is appreciated. You are already coming- why not come early and help out! Heaps of appreciation,training and a lovely sash included! Contact: Alana at Ushers@uufsd.org
