Membership Team Member
Description: Members of this Team consider the experiences of visitors, new members and existing members and try to improve our community’s welcome and engagement.
Time Commitment: We meet for 1 ½ hours one weeknight per month. Once or twice per year we contact, usually through email, members who are no longer engaged in the life of UUCC. Once each month after services, we staff a table with a listing of available volunteer opportunities in Freeman Hall. Since being virtual, one volunteer per month has hosted Getting to Know Us, a visitor session, for up to 45 minutes. Approximately quarterly, we may host an in-person visitor gathering.

Description: Greeters notice and welcome newcomers as they enter the building on Sunday mornings. Greeters answer visitor questions, show them where to find bathrooms, the sanctuary, etc. At the Visitor Table in Freeman Hall after services, they help visitors learn more about us. Greeters will occasionally be asked to assist at memorial services and other events.
