Get Involved Overviews
UUFCC is so much more than Sunday morning service. The Fellowship is vibrant and active seven days – and nights – a week with opportunities to learn, to grow, to be of service to others, to build relationships and to part of a diverse, energetic community.
There are many ways – big and small – to get involved. Maybe you’d like to share a talent or skill. Or perhaps you’d like to stretch yourself and try out something completely new. What do you feel called to do?
Share Talents and Gifts We embrace the belief that every member and friend in the congregation has unique gifts that can enrich spiritual growth and promote health and healing in our world. Each of us has much to contribute to build and sustain a vital congregation. We want to help connect members and friends to opportunities of interest, and we will also help members and friends of the congregation discover their gifts and talents for ministry.
Deepening your involvement at UUFCC will enrich our community and you individually. Contact the people listed here to learn more about how you might get involved.

The Aesthetics Committee is in charge of the keeping our Fellowship looking beautiful and interesting. Wendy Snetsinger and Dorothy Durrenberger are two of State College's local artists who make this happen. Don't forget to stop and marvel at the artwork in the building, particularly the Sanctuary.
