Volunteering

The mission of our church is carried out primarily by volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering and you know where you'd like to put your efforts, please feel free to contact the group or committee chair directly. 

If you are not sure where you want to volunteer or want to know about church programs that are most in need of extra help, please feel free to email our Minister, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


Outstanding Volunteers and Unsung UU

Curt Johnson and Steve CooperOur members recognize when others go above and beyond our expectations and sometimes they wish to acknowledge those outstanding contributions of time and talent. For many years, we participated in the Central Midwest District Unsung UU program. When that program ended, our Member Relations Committee implemented the Outstanding Volunteer Recognition.

Each year, usually in January or February, members are invited to nominate a church member, pair of members, or a group (not currently holding an elected position) for recognition by the congregation. Staff members may be nominated for volunteer work outside of their paid duties.
