Joining in the work of the fellowship is a wonderful way to connect with people.
You don't have to be an expert; whatever your time and abilities, you will be making a contribution that matters. When you get involved, you make friends, make a place for yourself, and make a difference.
There are volunteer opportunities to fit every schedule and interest – committee membership or one-time jobs, tasks behind the scenes or in the limelight, service within the congregation or to the broader community.
You don't have to be a Member to participate. Contact a committee chair at any time during the year to express your interest, or simply attend an event announced in the newsletter or on our calendar.
If you don't already receive our weekly newsletter and would like to, you can sign up online.
Committees & Teams
The annual Service Auction is the largest UUFN fundraiser of the year, and it usually raises enough to pay all UUFN expenses for 1 month.
Volunteers are needed (no experience necessary)!
You can help with publicity, use the computer to enter donations, create the catalog, bid sheets, invoices, and thank you letters to donors, decorate, greet bidders and give them their bid number, help donors compose item descriptions, be in skits, set up/clean up and more.
And with only TWO committee meetings over 3 months’ time – the most efficient committee at UUFN!
The Communication Team works with our media outlets (print, email, the website, and social media), and manages the Breeze Church Management System. We're a good home for people with a range of design, analysis, or technical skills.
Our goal is to help create and sustain the connection among members of our spiritual community and with the larger community of which we are a part.

The Fellowship Team's Mission is to build, enhance, and deepen the connections among members, both through activities initiated by us and by helping other committees with their activities. The team plans a wide range of social events.
UUFN provides about 40-50 meals on the fourth Thursday of every month except November (Hope is closed on Thanksgiving Day).
You can help out once, twice, or sign on for life!! The crew is established on a month-to-month basis.
No experience necessary!
