Serve Each Other and the Community

Service is an integral part of our experience at UUFG. We believe in putting our values into action, and offer many opportunities, both with the church and beyond its walls, to make a difference. Every action we take, big or small, that brings more love into our lives and the lives of those around us, takes us one step closer to healing the world.

How Are You Called To Serve?

  • Serve the Fellowship   ( 5 Articles )

    Communities only truly become communities when we pay attention to how we spend our time together, and bring intention to the work of building bonds of care and relationship. The simple act of greeting those entering the building on Sunday mornings is an important act of hospitality, as is spending time on Sunday mornings educating our children and youth. Find out more about these and many other ways you might volunteer within our UUFG community.

  • Serve the Community   ( 1 Article )

    At the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Gainesville we help one another, we help those in need, and we work towards righting the many injustices in the world. Volunteering in the broader Gainesville community is thus an important part of our ministry, and we are active in a wide range of programs. From helping under-privileged children in Alachua County schools become successful, productive contributors to society, to building and renovating homes for those in need, there is much we do to try and make Gainesville and the larger world a better place.
