The ICRH (Homeless Shelter) opens at the end of this month. The UUFCM is again partnering with St. John’s Episcopal Church, and we are scheduled to provide help for the weeks starting Sunday, November 4 and ending Saturday, November 17. We will need volunteers for providing dinners, overnight stays, and other services. There will be a sign-up sheet on Sunday and Joyce Henricks will gently nag you about volunteering.
The Social Justice Coordinating Team is hosting a GOTV Postcard Writing Party on Sunday, October 28 after worship, to urge/nudge people who might not get out to vote to do so. We’ll have the stamped postcards, a list of people to write to – or you might have your own list – and a script for you to follow if you wish.
The MUUSJN Environmental Task Force is looking for members from various UU congregations to complete an environmental survey, thus helping them focus on goals and set the direction for their work this church year. Please complete the survey by Monday, October 15.
The Social Justice Coordinating Team is facilitating two workshops titled “Reproductive Justice: A Threat to All of Us” on Sundays, October 14 (12:00-2:30) and 21 (12:00-2:00), after the worship service. The first workshop will share the documentary “Trapped” and facilitate a discussion. The second will share with participants current legislation both in Michigan and in the nation and provide steps for actions to take. Sign-up will be available on Sundays, September 30 and October 7, so that the team can plan to provide a light lunch to participants.
