Welcome | Program Descriptions | Programs


There are abundant opportunities in any vibrant community to extend welcome. It is in doing this well that the best hope for the long term health of our community begins to take shape.

WELCOME CENTERThese volunteers staff the “visitor’s table” one Sunday a month in Channing Hall, either 9:00 - 11:00am, or 11:00 am - 1:00 pm. The volunteers greet and assist visitors at the Welcome Center.

MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE Welcomes/greets/assists visitors, guides prospective members through the membership process and integrates existing members (new and current) into the community of the church.


• Welcome Lunches Welcome Lunch volunteers host a Welcome Lunch for visitors and new members the first Sunday of every month. During this lunch participants have an opportunity to meet the ministers and get to know a little more about this congregation and Unitarian Universalism. Volunteers help host the meal and facilitate discussions.

Visitor Response Team Join a team of volunteers who reach out to new and repeat visitors each week through emails and phone calls. We reach out to visitors welcoming them and inviting them to contact us if they have any questions. This team requires about 1-2 hours of work monthly and can be done at home.

• New Member Dinners Help host a convivial Friday evening dinner welcoming our newest members to our church. New Member Dinners are held the 2nd Friday of every other month. New members will have an opportunity to meet each other, a minister, church staff and leaders and to share the story of how they found our church as well as what they ask of the church as their chosen community.

USHERING & GREETING Ushers and Greeters welcome members and visitors to church each week and help provide a pleasant worship experience. Serving on this team is a wonderful way to meet people! The commitment includes assisting with just one service a month, and we will train you on everything you need to know.
