Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Fair Feb. 4 and Feb. 11

The annual Volunteer Fair will be held Sunday, Feb. 4, at Market Street, and Sunday, Feb. 11, at Clover Lane. We will be hosting many lay-led ministries and other organizations that are looking for new people to join their ranks. The Fair will be held in the Common Room at each campus following worship. Each participating group will have a display explaining its purpose and work, handout materials, and a sign-up sheet for new members. Someone from the organization will be at the display to discuss the group’s activities, the time commitment involved, and the need for new members. Most groups also plan to provide some snacks to go with your coffee!! We also would like to help UCH members and friends recognize service to the church as an integral part of one’s spiritual journey. In working together on a variety of projects through our church, we help build the beloved community that we seek. At the Discovery of Gifts booth at the Fair, we will have forms to be filled out by those who have not yet done so. The answers on the form help us match people with particular skills and interests with those church activities in need of their help. The final decision always rests with the individual on whether the request is something you want to do or have the time for. By working together in many ways, we can do great things at both of our church locations, building a stronger bridge between the suburbs and the city. The Fair is a fun way to find out what all is going on and how you can be a bigger part of the action.

Ushers & Greeters

We are in need of both ushers and greeters for Sunday mornings at Market Street and Clover Lane. 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.

To sign-up online, please click here. Paper sign-up sheets are available at each location. For more information, please contact Denny Byrne for Clover Lane and Dorothy Brown  for Market Street.

Building Maintenance Team

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 Kel, our Congregational Administrator 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 at our two campuses. 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 Ron Skrabut.
