What is Pathways to Service?

Pathways is a program that enables members to pursue their passion, further their skills, and deepen their connections through service at QUUF.

Service can be a spiritual practice, as you open your heart, apply your intelligence, and offer your energies to something you value that is larger than yourself.

Our vision is that the members of QUUF are vital, fully empowered partners in this fellowship’s ministry.

How Pathways to Service Works


Conversations: To offer service opportunities that feed your passions, we first need to know where our members’ passions lie. Our goal is to learn about your spiritual journey as well as your passions and skills through one-on-one conversations. A Conversation Team Member will invite you, or you can request a Pathways Conversation.

Service Opportunities: So that you will have a clear picture of what a service opportunity involves, descriptions of all opportunities are available for viewing through a link on the Pathways Web Page.

Matching: The Pathways Team will meet regularly to match members to Service Opportunities. Matching will be done with the goal of feeding member’s passions and nurturing their spirit as well as finding appropriate people to fill volunteer and leadership roles.

Statement of Theological Grounding

At QUUF we covenant to love, to share, to serve. Through service and shared leadership, we empower one another, nourish our souls, deepen our connections, and enable QUUF to continue to be a living force for good in the world. Thus we create a just and joyful place.

Pathways to Service is modeled on a successful program developed at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County in Pennsylvania. We are most grateful for their support in helping us bring this program to QUUF.
