Worship

Our worship teams are made up of musicians in the front and technicians operating various programs in the back. Musicians and technicians are paired on one of three current teams to provide a high-quality and meaningful worship experience on Sunday mornings. A mid-week practice is generally held the week prior to serving.

Workers serve every three weeks on a rotation. To provide a quality worship experience we need people willing to operate the presentation part of our service by being present at worship team practices and inputting worship music lyrics, videos, and anything else that might be required for a service. Training is provided on the Proclaim Presentation software so workers can skillfully navigate between song lyrics and sermon files.
Sound technicians serve every three weeks on a rotation. To provide a quality worship experience we need people willing to operate the sound system during worship team practices and morning worship services. Operators are also responsible for audio recording of the sermon. Training is provided on the mixing console as well as on the recording of the sermons.
Vocalists generally serve every three weeks on a rotation and generally on only one of our three teams. As well as having vocalists that serve on a routine basis we're always looking for vocalists willing to fill in when we have the occasional vacancy due to illness or vacations.

We currently have musicians who play piano/keyboard, drums, electric and acoustic guitars, violins, flutes, etc.

Ushers & Greeters

Our ushers and greeters play an indispensable role on Sunday mornings. They are often a first point of contact for those visiting UBC and for those needing help while they're with us.

The ministry of church ushers plays a vital role in the hospitality and welcome ministry of UBC. Ushers at UBC generally are involved in handing out bulletins at the doors, assisting visitors and members with finding seating, attending to the needs of visitors and members, watching for the safety of the congregation and acting as the line of first response to medical emergencies.
Our church greeters are one of the most important experiences for first time visitors and serve, generally, about once a month or less. For being such a vital part of our ministry at UBC, the responsibilities are fairly small. Our greeters greet people at the door, both members and visitors, generally lingering a little after the service has begun to make sure anyone straggling in isn't missed. They're also present when the service is over to say goodbye to everyone. In addition to simply saying "hello" they will also give newcomers directions to nurseries, classrooms, and the worship center. Because they are often our first point of contact with visitors they are extremely important.

Other Service Opportunities

The positions listed below are not the only other opportunities we have for service at UBC, but they are ones that are currently open and looking for people with a heart for them. If you don't see an area that matches your gifting or passion that God has placed in your heart, our staff members would love to talk to you and help you to find your place at UBC.

Our hospitality team members generally serve 2-3 times a year on a team for fellowship dinners, Easter Breakfast and summer picnics. Taking care of the details encourages the church to grow relationships with one another and with those visiting UBC. Responsibilities are shared among the team for set-up, putting out food, and cleaning up after.
Funeral Reception Coordinators work with grieving families inside the church to help them coordinate refreshments for family members and friends. This ministry generally involves communication with the family, office staff at UBC, and overseeing that the food items requested are provided for.

Since its unpredictable as to when someone in our church passes there can be long stretches without any coordination needed or short stretches where we may have a few funerals in the space of a few months.
