Volunteering

Thank you for considering volunteering for our ERUUF community! Our mission of building beloved community and transforming lives happens with the help of many volunteers. Sharing your time and talents gives you the satisfaction of knowing you’ve made a significant contribution to the fellowship, our community and beyond; and can bring purpose, joy and fulfillment into your life. It’s also a great way to get to know fellow ERUUFians!

There are numerous ways to get involved at ERUUF. Whether for a single event or an ongoing position, there is something you can do to help ERUUF run smoothly and accomplish much. Find what calls to you:

  • Are you a “doer” and get satisfaction with a specific task to complete?
  • Do you prefer to help with planning and decision making?
  • Do you need something you can accomplish on your own time?
