Ushers

Ushers offer a friendly and kind welcome to all – a smile and quick “good morning” as people enter the sanctuary. If no one else is helping you usher, ask a friend or see the Member Services Coordinator (MSC) who will help find another usher. Help new ushers “learn the ropes.” More information is available about this position.

Chancel Flowers

We are always appreciative of flowers and plants to beautify our chancel during services, which you can retrieve after the last service on Sunday. Flowers or plants may come from your home or own garden, the supermarket, or a plant shop of your choosing. There is no spending requirement or visual requirement whatsoever. For more information about donating flowers and plants for decoration during Sunday services, check here.

Host Coffee Hour

There is a coffee hour after each of our Sunday church services. A volunteer host/coffee maker is recruited for each coffee hour, to make and serve coffee and tea, as well as provide juice and crackers for the children. It is at the option of the hosts if light snacks are to be served, and other congregants can also bring food offerings for coffee hour. For more information, see this page about hosting coffee hour. Please note that cakes are discouraged and, most importantly, that UUCR is a peanut free zone. Please do not bring peanut butter or bakery goods containing peanuts to coffee hour.

Welcome Table

Greet members, guests and visitors as they arrive. Also stock and service the Welcome Table. Assist with name tags, introductions, and connecting with newcomers to the church to welcome them, refer them to the minister and others with similar interests or backgrounds, and get their contact information, if possible. More information about manning the Welcome Table is available.
