Volunteer Opportunities


We are in need of both ushers and greeters for Sunday mornings. What do ushers and greeters do? 

  • They play a vital role in the hospitality ministry of UCH.
  • They help create an inviting and warm welcoming experience that our first time  visitors or long term members and friends will have on a given day.
  • They help members, friends and visitors to experience a wonderful worship service.

For more information, please contact Denny Byrne.


Our church properties require a fair bit of human-power to keep them in good condition. The Building Maintenance Team coordinates and organizes various groups of individuals to carry out the necessary maintenance tasks. We can always use more help! Whatever your level of skill, we can find something for you to do. Contact Guy Dannelley for more information and to sign-up!


The Gardens Group involves volunteers who as individuals or in groups care for the approximately 20 cultivated gardens areas of the church. This grounds work is an opportunity for a church member to plant roots in our community, literally and figuratively. Gardening activity generally occurs at the convenience of the individual, i.e., you can work this into your own schedule. Once or twice a year we do schedule cleanup events inviting wider church participation. The church has a supply of gardening equipment available for communal use. We welcome volunteers at any time!  You can also volunteer to serve as backup for one-time tasks, and we will add you to our labor pool. For more information, contact Anita Mentzer.
