Each month, volunteers are donating food or helping at the food pantry at Clair Memorial. There are special requests and procedures.

We have a team called the Friends of Clair. Click here for more information about the food pantry and our work with Clair. 

Chancel Flowers Volunteers

 

Volunteers are still needed for some months in 2024 to bring flowers for the chancel table in the Sanctuary. Any kind of flowers or plants are welcome, and they can be dried, fake, etc. You can volunteer alone or as part of a group or team. If interested, please contact Linda at lhruskane@gmail.com

From the Membership Team: 
 
Front Door Wreaths

We would like to make the front entrance more welcoming year-round. Seasonal wreaths placed on the front doors are a great way to warm the entrance. If you’re able and willing to create and/or purchase these wreaths, please contact Membership Coordinator, Melissa Gibson, at coordinator@firstuuomaha.org.
  

Rainbow Lanyards for Membership Committee & Greeters
All members of the Membership Committee and Sunday Morning Greeters are encouraged to wear the new rainbow lanyards during Sunday services and coffee hour. This designates you as someone for visitors to approach with questions (and if you can’t answer the question, you can guide them to someone who can). Lanyards are available in the middle drawer in the foyer (beneath the parking validation area).
