Our community runs on the energy of our volunteers, and opportunities abound to get involved in worship, programs, projects, and committees. There are many ways to put your values into action here at the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship (BUF). We need people with a variety of talents, interests and passions to keep this a vibrant community. Whether you prefer working with people, buildings, paper, computers, art, finances, or food, we have a place for you to put your principles into action. Some take a few random hours a month; some are a consistent weekly commitment.
