Volunteering at UBC

UBC strives to be a warm and loving family of faith, and we welcome you to be part of this community in whichever ways are best suited to your gifts and availability. We invite you to engage with us, here in our community.

If you are interested in volunteering some of your time with us, please contact the Church Office 434.293.5106 or Pheobe Brown volunteer@universitybaptist.org

Current Volunteer Needs


Church Office

The Church Bulletin: Can you use Microsoft Publisher? If so we would love to put your talents to use!

Realm: Are you comfortable with a computer? We need help maintaining and updating our files.  It’s not glamorous but, your impact will be far reaching!

Venable Food Bags: Can you stuff a bag of groceries? We need help packing and delivering weekly care packages for 13 students who would otherwise not have enough food over the weekend.

Welcome Committee: Are you naturally gregarious and interested in what happens in the church during the week? We invite you to be a part of our welcoming committee.  We need greeters to help us keep our doors open during the week.

Children and Families

Worship Bags: Can you spend a few minutes checking our supplies in the Narthex? Making sure the bags are unpacked and supplies are plentiful for next week’s service?

Events: Are you interested in supporting some of our one-time and short-term events? WE need more volunteers for Vacation Bible School, Community Service Days, Sunday School etc.

Primarily Weekends or “off” hours:

Youth Dinner Coordinator: We need volunteers to help coordinate dinner for our youth (and Jubilate) on Sunday evenings.  This entails coordinating with the Wednesday night supper team, warming up dinner and serving and cleaning up after the meal.

Sunday Mornings:

Coffee Fellowship Coordinator: Do you like to be caffeinated before worship on Sundays? Help us manage our refreshments on the first floor for Sunday Mornings.

Clean Up the Coffee: After church could you spend a few minutes helping us break down the coffee? Putting the dishes into the dishwasher and emptying the pots would go a long way!

Sunday Videographer: DO you have an IPhone or an Android? Would you be willing to take a few snapshots or videos of the service on Sunday?


Intercessory Prayer Team: Join our prayer team, praying for members, our community and those who reach out to us for prayer from far and wide.  We specifically need help connecting with individuals who contact us through our Facebook page.  Can you spare a few minutes to respond to these individuals and make sure they are included on our prayer lists?

Upcoming Events:

UBC Day of Service: Come out and service with your fellow members, friends and family.  Help make our building shine! Light cleaning, painting and maintenance tasks. Something for all ages and abilities.  Keep a lookout for more information.


We want to extend a warm thank you to all of you who are already serving in our community through our Circles of Caring, as a Deacon, a member or a visitor.  We are grateful for all your contributions.  If you have an idea for a volunteer role and don’t see if here, please let us know – volunteer@universitybaptist.org.
