The March special collection on Sunday, March 20 is for the Isabella County Soup Kitchen, the agency providing meals to those in need. This year, because of the COVID pandemic and the economic situation, the Soup Kitchen has been serving to-go meals three days a week in a drive through/no contact manner. You can donate online to the Social Justice Special Plate Collection Fund at our website or checks can be sent to our treasurer made out to UUFCM with “Soup Kitchen” indicated in the memo line.
If you are interested in helping to plan anti-racist activities based on the results of our congregational retreat on January 22, please join us in person in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, March 20 at 2:00 pm. All are welcome.
It’s that time of the year again. The UUFCM is scheduled to provide dinners at St. John’s Church for the guests of the Isabella County Restoration House homeless shelter during the week of March 27 to April 2. We do not yet know which days we will be responsible for but, if you are interested in helping, contact Joyce Henricks (Joyce.email@example.com).
A peace vigil for the people of Ukraine was held outside the Fellowship on Saturday, February 26. Liz Busch organized the gathering. Rev. Drew led a song and the Rev. Sr. Diane Stier led a prayer. The featured speaker was Masha Smahliuk, a Ukrainian exchange student living in Mount Pleasant.
If you would like to help Ukraine, here is the document that was handed out at the peace vigil listing organizations that are serving the needs of the people of Ukraine.
