On Sundays, the following committees and teams volunteer their time and talents to buttress Worship services along with related learning and social activities. Please consider giving a hand and join the team that matches your interests and skills!  

Serve on Sunday

The Worship Team provides weekly support to our Minister, which includes arranging for Worship Associates who assist with Sunday services; Room Vergers who set up the Sanctuary and enlist Offertory Ushers; and Chalice Lighters and Zoom Vergers who provide the Zoom video and recording offerings.

When the minister is absent, the Team provides spirited lay led worship services which affirm our Unitarian Universalist values by offering inspiration, illumination and kindness to all who attend. We welcome all who wish to join the Worship Team!

  • Meeting Times:  Second Wednesday of each month, at 6:00 p.m.
  • Time Commitment:  Meetings last approximately an hour. Worship Team members who lead services prepare homilies and/or sermons which may take a number of hours to research and write.
  • For more information email worship@uucwnc.org

Worship Associates assist with Sunday services by selecting uplifting components such as the welcome, chalice lighting words, responsive reading, and offertory words. Worship Associates may be asked to provide other parts of the service as requested by the worship leader.
