Both men and woman already participate in this relaxed and welcoming group. For further information, e-mail Trudy Karlson, trudy.karlson@gmail.com.

Greet visitors, answer phones, and assist church staff with light clerical tasks. Build a schedule that fits your lifestyle. A typical shift might be 9 am to 12:30 or 12:30-4 pm weekdays. Contact: Bobbi Zehner, 233-6027 or bobbiz@sbcglobal.net

Newsletter Assembly

Each month we create and print over 1,400 copies of The Madison Unitarian, our monthly newsletter. Join our hard-working crew as they collate, label and package the final product the last Monday morning of each month from about 9 to 11:30 am. Contact: Harry Carnes, 233-9774, ext. 122.

Coff

ee, Tea and Hospitality Crew

Love the smell of fresh brewed coffee or tea and enjoy hosting? After each service, we offer steamy hot beverages in the Commons for conversation and sharing. Many of us are needed to prepare and serve. This is a wonderful way of meeting others! Ideally a monthly commitment would be appreciated. Want to sign up? Have questions? Please contact our Coordinator of Member Programs, Jeanne Sears, at 233-9774 Ext. 116 (or click here to email Jeanne).

Flowers

Members, affiliates and friends are invited to provide a floral offering for our weekend services. A sign-up book is located at the Information Kiosk in the Lower Commons. Your message of dedication, memory will be included in that week’s order of service. Contact: Ann Smiley, 354-2075 or salutsmiley@gmail.com

Saturday Service Snack and Potluck Assistance

We're always looking for people to bring a healthy snack for folks to nibble on following the Saturday 4:30 p.m. service. The amount and type of food is totally up to you. The purpose is to offer a little something to encourage people to enjoy community time after the service. In addition, a great way to build community is to help with the monthly potluck clean-up. The potluck is the second Saturday of every month, except during the summer. Not only is this a great way to meet people, but helpers also get to go to the front of the serving line! 

Sound System Operators/Tech Team

Our sound operators provide great sound for the Society through our PA and recording system. “Mic” the services, monitor levels, make digital recordings and run our webcasts. This is a fun and challenging way to contribute to the Society. Training provided. Commit to a regular schedule or serve as a back-up. Contact: Roz Woodward, 251-1074 or rozw@tds.net

Greeters

Help us welcome newcomers! Arrive half an hour before the service of your choice. Greet those who come into the Meeting House, especially newcomers, and introduce them to others. Stay for a few moments following the service to chat with those who may have questions. Contacts:

Ushers

Join the ushering team and assist with weekend services distributing or collecting hymnals, handing out orders of service, passing collection plates, and performing other duties as needed. It’s a great way to get acquainted with people in the congregation. Contacts:

  • Saturday service Volunteer Coordinator- Carol Roan at roanschewe@gmail.com or 232-1627
  •  Sunday services Volunteer Coordinator- Roz Woodward at rozw@tds.net or 251-1074

Make the world a little better... join our Social Justice Teams.

FUS partners with community programs to provide meals, shelter and financial assistance. It takes many volunteers to do this work! Newcomers welcome.

Our Religious Education programs are always looking for volunteer teachers to teach both Adult Education classes and classes for children and youth. Teachers in our Children's Religious Education program work in teams of three or four and rotate "lead" teaching. Curricula are provided and staff support makes teaching our children a reasonable and enjoyable time commitment. For more information about our Adult Education program and how to volunteer for it, click here. For more information about our Children's Religious Education program, the classes we offer, and how to volunteer for that program, click here.
