Six Spring RE Teachers Needed

Can you be a Team Teacher this spring, rotating with other Teachers to lead RE class sessions? The commitment would be 10 Sundays Jan. 19th – May 10th (5 Sundays leading the lesson, 5 Sundays supporting another Teacher as they lead and 5 Sundays off). We need 2 Teachers for each of these age groups: Birth-Kindergarten, 1st/2nd grade and 3rd/4th. Click here to see the job description and contact Jennifer at dre@uucmtka.org with questions. Thank you for considering if you can help make RE possible for the children of UUCM 🙂

Family Greeters Needed

Do you remember your first day at UUCM? Did someone greet you warmly and share some helpful information? Being greeted is particularly crucial for those visitors considering our RE program for their kids. If you can come to service early once a month or so to share a smile and give a little tour, please contact Jennifer at dre@uucmtka.org. We need you 🙂 This is a wonderful service opportunity for a family to share (and great for individuals too).

The UUCM Greeter Sign-up Has New Options

Now there are two greeting options for Sunday mornings at UUCM, available through the Greeter “button” at the top of the UUCM website home page.

  • Guestbook + Red Cup Greeter – Welcomes all people as they arrive and helps newcomers to feel oriented and at ease.
  • Family Greeter – Welcomes all people as they arrive and attends specifically to new families with children to help them feel oriented and comfortable. Please sign up for as many services as you can manage. Greeting instructions are on the sign-up page.

We welcome and encourage children to join adults in greeting (and ushering!), as well. They often enjoy these roles. Thanks very much for all you do for UUCM!
