Getting Involved in Community Life

There are many ways to get involved at UUFG, including social activities, special interest groups, and helping out around our Fellowship. Such activities provide a way for members and friends to get to know each other, thus encouraging a feeling of community within the Fellowship and building a concerned, helping congregation.

  • You may be interested in Family Activities or Youth Group.
  • Help organize or carry out Pastoral Care activities for fellow members.
  • Or help out at UUFG, working on necessary tasks like Sparkle Saturday or Fundraising.

Sparkle Saturday

Love to get your hands dirty? So do we! Whether you like to weed, plant or do some heavy lifting, we'd love to have you. Grounds is a great place to get to know others at the Fellowship. We conduct regular grounds mini-work-days on the second Saturday of each month, 9-11 a.m. Come by during that time and pitch in! No need to RSVP, just bring your gloves and mosquito-repellent/sun protection. Newcomers are always welcome, and it is a great way to get to know other people. Contact: Hans Alborn

Fundraising Events

UUFG hosts a variety of events that raise funds to help support our Fellowship. Regular yearly fundraisers include a live auction and our garage sale. These events are organized and run by members and friends of the Fellowship. Key tasks include planning and scheduling, recruiting participants, decorating, publicity, cooking and donating food, cashiering, technical and computer assistance, and event set up and clean up. Participating in these events is a great way to get to know others at the Fellowship, and the events are a lot of fun as well. For information on upcoming fundraising events, contact the UUFG office.


The UUFG BookStore is open after service each Sunday, and has a variety of offerings for sale. New books ordered from the UUA bookstore, old books donated for resale, and notecards from current artisan members are a few of the offerings. Be sure to come by and browse the store. If you don't see what you are wanting, let them know, and they can probably find it! Contact: Paul Hargrave.
