Social Generosity Offering: November 2021

Sleep Out

Our November offering will go to honor and support the IOCP Sleep Out Campaign. The funds raised through the Sleep Out campaign help IOCP – Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners – deliver individualized services in the areas of family support, food, housing and neighborhoods, education and youth, employment, and transportation. They help nearly 2,000 local families each year stabilize, strengthen and thrive. Over the years, our local communities have helped prevent homelessness 34,912 times through rent assists. The Sleep Out is one way we celebrate and tap into the power of our collective compassion.

UUCM In-Reach: Building Relationships Campaign

Powerful Together

This fall, UUCM’s Social Justice team will be implementing a campaign to cultivate and strengthen relationships within our congregation. We are more powerful when we work together, and we will “visit” with congregants to explore new ways to live out our values. Please sign up here if you would like to be contacted for a one-on-one in-depth conversation. Visits can be either in-person, by phone or on Zoom. If you are interested in learning to become an in-reach conversation facilitator (Visitor), please contact Sue Fust at drlanasue@yahoo.com or 952-406-2464. We are hoping to help congregants find any opportunities within the church – not only related to social justice – that will enable them to become involved. We look forward to visiting with you!
