Become an active member, join one of our Teams!
There are many volunteer opportunities to support our spiritual family and friends at UFM. Volunteering is a wonderful way to get connected, make new friends, give of yourself, become to part of something larger than yourself, and grow spiritually through service. While a few ministry teams require UFM membership or special training, most are open to anyone who wishes to become involved.
Every team is always looking for new members. All are on a volunteer basis to help as you are able. There is a monthly all teams meeting and potluck on the first Sunday of the month after Services. Come and check out what various teams you would be interested in. Team work makes the dream work!

It only requires about 2 hours per Sunday during the service – and you are already here! Our chores are easy – we provide information about our church and events and assists with various aspects of the Sunday service. A GREAT way to meet new friends!
