The UUFCM Board has decided that we need to make a monthly special offering to supplement our minister’s discretionary fund. There has been a decided increase in requests for assistance and funds are needed to purchase bus passes and gift cards for groceries and other personal items for those in need. We will be taking this offering on the third Sunday of each month.
This year the UUFCM will be collecting children’s books – actually the range is pre-school through young adult – as our contribution to the Christmas Outreach program this year. If you would like to donate any new or very slightly used books to this effort, please contact Beth Macleod at 989.772.0595 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The social justice team has two t-shirts styles for sale. Our locally printed UUFCM shirts are $10, and the Standing on the Side of Love shirts are $20 and will be ordered by catalog. There are sample shirts in the Social Hall at the UUFCM. Orders and payments are due by Sunday, October 25. Please see, call, or text Jen Prout at 989-400-3130 with any questions.
The 2015 Mt. Pleasant Area CROP Hunger Walk is taking place this Sunday, October 11 at Island Park at 1:00 p.m. One of our youth, Josh Daniels, will be taking the lead in signing up people to walk on our behalf that Sunday as well as collecting our donations to help “end hunger one step at a time!” Please read more about CROP Hunger Walk here.
