UUS Singers

Music and singing are a major part of how we gather on Sunday mornings at UUS, and being part of a choir is a great way to be part of music-making in the congregation. After a long hiatus during Covid, we are back! During Thursday evening rehearsals, we prepare anthems and hymns to enhance the Sunday morning services. We also build our individual and collective musicianship in our singing together. No experience required! Rehearsals are at 7pm in the Sanctuary.

Other UUS Music-Making

If you play an instrument, sing, or have another way you want to contribute music at UUS, there are opportunities to do so both individually and as part of a group. Look for info in monthly newsletters and weekly updates about “instant choir” and “instant orchestra” for certain services in the fall. Let us know of your talents!

Pastoral Care Team and UNI-Care

The Pastoral Care Team is a group of trained lay volunteers who assist our minister. It includes UNI-Care, which provides practical support such as meals after surgery. WE collaborate with families and friends to support and supplement their caring presence. Our goal is to provide a ministry of caring, connection, and hope so that no one who is part of our congregation feels isolated or alone. We need people to provide meals and rides.
