Volunteer service to our congregation and our community is part of our Unitarian Universalist ethic. UUs live their faith by doing. 


Growth Through Service is about tapping into what connects you to Albany UU. We want to learn about you so that we can help you connect and collaborate in ways that mean the most to you. And we want to celebrate all that you bring to Albany UU.  Sign up for a conversation with a Growth Through Service volunteer.

To watch what service means to Albany UU members, check out this video!

Whether you have unlimited time to share or can only help an hour or so every month or two, there are many ways to serve Albany UU and our larger community.

Volunteering to assist with Sunday Hospitality is a wonderful way to meet people (even when we’re virtual!):

Virtual Service Ushers:
This is a great opportunity to volunteer on a Sunday morning! Ushers and Welcomers are needed on Sunday mornings to help provide a welcoming, safe and enjoyable virtual experience. We need folks who would be willing to volunteer to help. Tammy will provide a quick and simple training. PLEASE contact her if you’d like to learn more: admin@albanyuu.org.
  • When we’re back in our sacred space on September 12, 2021:
  • Greeters welcome visitors and members to church.
  • Welcome Table volunteers assist visitors.
  • Ushers assist before and during the worship service.
  • Coffee hour hosts facilitate our gathering after the service in Channing Hall.
