Wanted: Holiday ElvesThe Family to Family Holiday Giving Program (F2F) is our Society’s effort to help make the holidays brighter for families served by Dane County Human Services. Last year FUS members provided gifts and food cards to 130 families. Do you have a few hours to help register gift donors, or organize or dispense the gifts collected? We hope you’ll join our FUS elves in the spirit of the holidays. Sign-up sheets are in the Commons or you can access the F2F automated sign-up sheet at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0F44AEA92CA2F49-family
Coffee, Tea and Hospitality CrewLove the smell of fresh brewed coffee or tea and enjoy hosting? After each service, we offer steamy hot beverages in the Commons for conversation and sharing. Many of us are needed to prepare and serve. This is a wonderful way of meeting others! Ideally a monthly commitment would be appreciated. Want to sign up? Have questions? Please contact our Coordinator of Member Programs, Jeanne Sears, at 233-9774 Ext. 116 (or click here to email Jeanne).
FlowersMembers, affiliates and friends are invited to provide a floral offering for our weekend services. A sign-up book is located at the Information Kiosk in the Lower Commons. Your message of dedication, memory will be included in that week’s order of service. Contact: Ann Smiley, 354-2075 or email@example.com
Food HaulersThe Food Haulers prepare and serve food for many Society events, including parish meetings, member recognition events, and special congregational celebrations. We bake ahead, plan, shop, prepare food, serve and clean-up. You can volunteer for any or all. Menus and grocery lists are provided. No cooking experience is necessary. Both men and woman already participate in this relaxed and welcoming group. For further information, e-mail Trudy Karlson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help us welcome newcomers! Arrive half an hour before the service of your choice. Greet those who come into the Meeting House, especially newcomers, and introduce them to others. Stay for a few moments following the service to chat with those who may have questions. Contacts:
Every three weeks we create and print over 1,000 copies of The Madison Unitarian. Join our hard-working crew as they collate, label and package the final product every third Monday morning from about 9 to 11:30 am. Contact: Harry Carnes, 233-9774, ext. 122.
Even if your week’s schedule is too complex to add another activity, you can still take an active role in the Society while you are attending weekend worship services.
Saturday Service Snack and Potluck AssistanceWe're always looking for people to bring a healthy snack for folks to nibble on following the Saturday 4:30 p.m. service. The amount and type of food is totally up to you. The purpose is to offer a little something to encourage people to enjoy community time after the service. In addition, a great way to build community is to help with the monthly potluck clean-up. The potluck is the second Saturday of every month, except during the summer. Not only is this a great way to meet people, but helpers also get to go to the front of the serving line!
Sound System Operators/Tech TeamOur sound operators provide great sound for the Society through our PA and recording system. “Mic” the services, monitor levels, make digital recordings and run our webcasts. This is a fun and challenging way to contribute to the Society. Training provided. Commit to a regular schedule or serve as a back-up. Contact: Roz Woodward, 251-1074 or email@example.com

Our Religious Education programs are always looking for volunteer teachers to teach both Adult Education classes and classes for children and youth. Teachers in our Children's Religious Education program work in teams of three or four and rotate "lead" teaching. Curricula are provided and staff support makes teaching our children a reasonable and enjoyable time commitment.
