Here are some of the ways you can get involved:
Come to church â€” make church a priority for your family. Donâ€™t forget to spend some time at Social Hour with your family after worship services. Enjoy a snack, browse the bookstore, visit the Social Action and RE tables and chat with your fellow First Unitarianites.
Pledge to the church â€” the existence of our Religious Education program is due to members and friendsâ€™ financial support. If you already pledge to the church, consider increasing your pledge. Even a small increase can result in incredibly positive changes for the program and the whole congregation.
Meet your childâ€™s teachers â€” make a point to speak with your childâ€™s teachers regularly. All RE teachers are volunteer church members and friends, just like you. Your kids say and do amazing things in class. Be sure to talk to the teachers to hear more about it! Better yet, sit in on a class every once in a while to get the real scoop
Sign up to assist in the nursery â€” we provide childcare for infants and toddlers every Sunday. This is a great way to meet parents and a totally fun way to volunteer!
Join the Usher team â€” Families are welcome to serve together as Sunday morning usher/greeters. Not only is this a vital service to the congregation, but is especially good for making connections in the community. For more information, contact Usher coordinator, Pat Montley.
Sign up to be a Mystery Buddy â€” throughout the year there are exciting intergenerational events and programs to get involved in. Be sure to keep an eye out to find out what events are coming up.
Join in the Multi-Generational fun â€” From our annual Halloween party to worship, to Mystery Buddies in March, there are plenty of events that families can do together at First Unitarian.
Volunteer to be an RE teacher â€” there is nearly always an opportunity to join a teaching team and thereâ€™s no better way to make an impact in the lives of our kids and youth than to guide them in the fun and fabulous world of Religious Education. Itâ€™s easier than you think and more important than you can imagine!
Call your Director of Lifespan Religious Education â€” Give Becky a call or drop her an email if you ever have any questions or concerns about the program or about Unitarian Universalism or Religious Education in general. Hearing directly from families helps make our program a better one for everybody!
