Volunteer Your Time and Talent to Our Worship and Tech Teams
Image

Now, more than ever, UUCSC needs the time and talent of our members and friends. If you have skills in PowerPoint Presentations, public speaking, writing, researching, or running the technical aspects of a service, we need your help!

The health of our church community depends on all of us working together, offering our services. Let’s make the next few months a time of renewed energy and enthusiasm. This is the time that you can make a difference! Step up and make UUCSC a vital, thriving church.

If you can help, please contact Terry Hassman at tmhassman@aol.com Thank you.

Playground Access for Families
UUCSC Playground

The UUCSC Playground is available by reservation to families who are part of the UUCSC community. Families not part of the community may also schedule a reservation for the space with a recommendation from a community member. This is a great way to spend some time outside with your family!
Reservations are available on first come, first served basis. In order to observe COVID-19 safety measures, one reservation will be allowed access per day.
