CVUU is very much a volunteer organization. Our officers and board directors are volunteers, but many other volunteers do much of the week-to-week work needed by our beloved community. Volunteers contribute much of our worship service, help teach our religious education classes, host coffee and conversation after service, and perform our community service activities.
In support of our in-person services (currently suspended due to COVID), volunteers set up the sanctuary for worship, greet arriving congregants, usher, operate the sound and light systems, perform music, sing in the choir, open the worship service, prepare and serve coffee, and close up the church.
Now that we are conducting worship and other gatherings online, we have expanded our volunteer team to those who can help with our Sunday service’s technical aspects, now brought to everyone via Zoom, a video-conferencing platform.
At our Military Highway location, the congregation maintains the grounds and does small maintenance tasks. These tasks continue, even in the time of COVID.
Our volunteer Caring Team helps members with small tasks like rides to and from healthcare outpatient procedures and meals when convalescing. Etc. A Lay Pastoral Care Team helps the minister with pastoral care activities.
Coalitions of the willing perform these and other volunteer functions. From time to time, committees will call for volunteers, usually as we start the church year at the fall Ingathering service. Participating in a committee is a great way to serve.
