Welcome Team

Extend warm hospitality to visitors and newcomers, ensuring everyone feels welcome. Helping to make sure services run smoothly is a great way to meet people and learn about what goes on behind the scenes on Sundays.

It takes a village to make Sunday Worship Services run smoothly at JUC. Will you join the team?

  • Greeters – Greet people as they enter, help them find anything they may need including children’s classroom, and guide them to sign the visitor sign-in if they are new.  
  • Ushers – Greet those going into sanctuary, pass the offering bowl during ceremony, count and sign for money after service.  
  • Hosts – make coffee, setup the refreshment area, clean up after and connect with people during the coffee hour after services
