Ways to Serve
Main Line Unitarian Church provides many opportunities for you to serve our community.There are many opportunities to share your passion and effort on our projects within the church and the surrounding community. Ongoing opportunities include:
Would you like to make Sunday mornings at MLUC more meaningful? Join the volunteer team! Sign up for a regular monthly spot or fill in whenever you’re available. To sign up or learn more, please email the volunteer coordinators listed below.
Greet visitors and members as they enter the church on Sundays. This is a great opportunity to warmly welcome everyone to your church community. Click here to sign up to volunteer as a Greeter. Coordinator: Linda Farr
Welcome visitors to MLUC. Welcome table volunteers greet and orient first-time visitors, direct individuals to pamphlets about Unitarian Universalism and church programs, and register visitors interested in signing up for our mailing list. Click here to sign up to volunteer at Welcome Table.
Assist with the logistics during Sunday services. Being an usher requires some training, which is available for interested volunteers. Ushers hand out programs, assist with seating needs, control the doors once the service has started, collect and count Outreach Offering contributions, and count the attendance.

Help our community to maintain environmentally sustainable practices. Green Stripers assist during the Sunday morning coffee hours, ensuring that paper and plastic waste is kept to a minimum. Click here to sign up for Green Striper.
Food for Coffee Hour
Please help support our post service fellowship by volunteering to provide coffee hour food. It can be homemade or purchased. While we have traditionally served sweets, feel free to try other things like cheese and crackers, fruit, etc. We have been averaging 100 people per service, so it would be helpful to have two different volunteers for each service or perhaps your Small Group Ministry group, committee, or faith development class would like to sign up to sponsor a coffee hour date. Thanks in advance for your help! Contact Leanne Miller Rush with questions. Sign up here to bring food for Sunday service coffee hour.
The Worship Visuals Committee provides the decorations seen each Sunday at the front of the Main Meeting Room. These decorations may relate to what you will hear during the service, reflect the current season or holiday, or just brighten the stage. If you are interested in contributing to this effort, contact Beth Rittenhouse.
Worship Associates are members who assist our interim minister, Rev. David Messner, with our Sunday services, sometime making announcements, performing readings, or leading meditations. They also organize our worship services in collaboration with guest ministers. The Worship Committee meets monthly, discussing worship issues, reviewing services, and planning upcoming services. Chair: David Hucker
Faith development at MLUC relies on volunteer teachers in our Sunday-school program and volunteer youth leaders for our middle-school and high-school age youth. Contact our Director of Lifespan Faith Development, Dawn Star Sarahs-Borchelt, to learn more.
Volunteer In Other Ways
MLUC’s beautiful grounds are designed and maintained by a large dedicated team of gardeners with a wide range of gardening skills. You can join the team and pair up with someone to maintain a small patch or work on larger landscaping projects. To learn more, contact Christy Parry.
