As newcomers find a place to belong at UUFA, they often seek to serve the Fellowship. Sometimes it’s as simple as helping make coffee for our after-service fellowship time. Others love singing in the choir or leading groups that study books or do needlework together. Many people find that in serving others their own lives are enriched. Teachers feel taught, and spiritually nourished, by their interactions with kids and youth. The all-volunteer grounds crew enjoys being outside and has a great time together.
Many of us are led to work for justice. We’ve taken pilgrimages together to Selma, Alabama, and to Romania. We’ve marched to protect democracy and reproductive freedom. We’ve worked to reduce our carbon footprint and help the poor in Athens weatherize their homes. Some of our members have cooked meals for and helped host the homeless, and others have worked to help recent immigrants find the services they need.
However volunteers seek to serve the Fellowship, they are valued and can find value in connecting with others and with the larger UUFA community. To discover how you can volunteer, read through the website for contacts of groups or activities you’d like to participate in or email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you’re interested in!
