UUCR volunteers play a critical role in the success of our church.

We depend on volunteers in a number of important ways including membership growth, program support and community outreach. The hard, thoughtful work and dedication of our volunteers allows us to affirm and promote the seven Principles of our faith. Volunteer Central is a one-stop spot for Members and Friends to learn more about the volunteer opportunities at our church. This page contains specific volunteer requests with links for signing up. Some requests are for one-time activities, while others are for ongoing volunteer support. Click on the link below to learn more and sign up.
