Are you a new member looking for ways to offer your time and talent to your beloved community? Here are some ways to help.
Hosting our UUCJ Coffee and Fellowship Hour is a great way to meet people. Set up, serve and break down and clean up. People will talk to you and learn to know who you are! Luis Parra () is the chair of our hospitality team and can answer any questions you may have about this wonderful service opportunity. What better way to start or end your week than by making sure that we take care of one another with some warm hospitality and hot coffee?
Really all three slots can set up, serve and clean up. However, we want to make sure at least two people are on cleanup duty. You should be able to set up come to service and just leave a little early to make sure it is ready by end of service.
Campus Security Rovers
Be a UUCJ campus Rover. Walk the campus and keep an eye on the property on Sundays.

You will carry a walkie talkie and call for assistance if you see suspicious activity. No confrontations required! Please review the available slots below and click on the sign-up button. Sign up for one 1.5 hour slot, or both.Sign Up

Our kitchen is cleaned, organized and labeled, now we need volunteers to sign up for coffee hour. The sign up is for one day at a time so the more people that volunteer the easier the job. (No volunteers mean no coffee that day!). Before the service, you will follow the directions to set up coffee, set out plates and napkins, and possibly empty a dishwasher. After the service, there is a quick cleanup of the coffee pot and dishes.
Interested in a UUCJ Small Group? UUCJ has three functioning Small Groups meeting once a month in Arlington, the Beaches and Fernandina. Soul Matters materials are being used to facilitate discussions. Deepening relationships within small groups strengthens our congregation. One or two more groups could be formed. Finding a trained facilitator is the first step. In August Soul Matters Training sessions will be offered to new and experienced facilitators.

Our grower, Nichole, will be celebrating her birthday morning on June 4 by working at our garden from 9am to noon. As the JU & UNF student helpers are gone for the summer she could use help from UUCJ. Please come by to wish her a happy birthday & offer a helping hand. No experience necessary. Your visit will brighten her day and help her grow food for the pantry at Arlington Community Services!
