Volunteering at UUFC

If you are ready to contribute your time and talent to the collective work of our Fellowship, we invite you to explore the committee opportunities described here and contact the appropriate person listed. If you don’t see a contact person, or know of another way you’d like to be involved, reach out to someone on our Board to explore the possibilities.

Justice Work at UUFC means reaching out and meeting the needs of our community as part of our spiritual practice. The Social Justice Committee has identified helping the unhoused, connecting people to food and social services, and protecting the environment as top priorities. Action taken by the committee has included supporting the low barrier shelter, providing funds towards a UUFC sponsored “tiny house” at Chico Housing Action Team’s (CHAT) Simplicity Village, and supporting the local chapter of 350.org to end the use of fossil fuels. We organize, provide and serve meals at the Torres Shelter every month, and half of our Sunday cash offerings go to charities voted on by our members. Meets 4th Monday of every month, 7 PM.
