Get Involved

Come bring your warm and welcoming smiles to help usher on Sunday mornings. Ushers may either be a part of the welcoming team and/or help with receiving the offering and serving communion. This is a weekly commitment; we are seeking volunteers to commit to one Sunday each month.

Troubling things do happen when we least expect them. Many of us would like to respond to difficult behavior in the safest, most positive, most compassionate, and most effective way. To that end, the Brookline Police will be doing a De-Escalation Training at United Parish on Sunday, January 22, after church in the Parlor. This training will be for ushers and any other interested members of United Parish. A light lunch will be served at the beginning. Please sign up by emailing if you plan to attend.
