Please look over our list of Love-in-Action opportunities.  You’ll find some great ways to share in co-creating our UCIR spiritual community.   We invite you to explore where you would enjoy giving of your time and talents as God’s Love-In-Action.

Sunday Morning Usher/Greeter:  Do you like to extend a welcome? The set-up tasks include making sure greeting materials are ready, candles are lit and all is in Divine Order.  Pray-in is at 10am. The ideal would be to have a team of 3 persons for each Sunday per month.   Training is provided. This is a great way to connect with everyone.
Audio-Visual Team:  Love technology & willing to learn?    Position involves controlling the sound system, recording services on computer and tech support for movies & webinars.  You may participate in all or part of the above activities.  Training provided.

PowerPoint Team:  Position involves running the companion PowerPoint presentation during the Sunday service.  Training provided.

Music Team:  Do you love music? Love to sing?  Play an instrument?  Consider choir, special music, joining our drumming circle. Our Music Team is always open to new talent, new music, and new possibilities - talk to our musicians and find out where you can join in making a joyful noise unto the Lord.

Prayer Chaplain:  Interested in prayer?  Requires annual Prayer Chaplain Training & Unity Membership – talk to Rev. Carolyn or Rev. Ken

Youth Ministry Teacher or Assistant:   If you enjoy working with children, training is available for those who want to assist with the children's minstry.

Host or Hostess: It’s easy & fun to serve!  Arrive early to make coffee & set up the table for refreshments.  After service, act as host during fellowship & then clean-up.  If this is a position that appeals to you, ask that special friend to join you to serve one Sunday a month.

Provider of Refreshments: Love to eat and share?  Everyone can participate - just bring what you and others would enjoy. This is an opportunity for all to try new recipes, share old favorites, bring gifts from your garden or simply shop at your favorite grocery.
