The Social Action Day of Service on Saturday, March 11, 2017, was a resounding success! More than two dozen MSUS members and friends came together to:
- Make care packages for our homeless neighbors
- Construct bird nesting material tubes for your yard
- Prep books for distribution to local Little Free Libraries
- Construct furniture and clean the Hope4Youth drop-in center in Anoka
- Cooked a meal of meatloaf and baked potatoes at Alexandra House
Huge thanks to everyone who helped plan, provide supplies, and helped participate! You are all amazing!

The back includes the new Vision statement and the URL for the church website. Find an order form on the bulletin board in the Social Hall and order yours today! Completed forms and checks should be placed in the Social Action mailbox.
For March’s Special Collection, MSUS donated $540 to SACA (Southern Anoka Community Action). SACA has been serving the communities of Columbia Heights, Hilltop, Fridley, and Spring Lake Park for 39 years. Using the Client Choice food shelf model, they serve 500 – 625+ in-crisis families (1450 to over 1650 people), giving out 39,500 – 45,000 plus pounds of food monthly.
Our April Special Collection will be conducted during the service on Sunday, April 9, 2017, and will go Springbrook Nature Center. Springbrook includes 3 miles of hiking trails through oak and aspen forests, past prairies and through wetlands with floating boardwalks. Along the way, view native plants and wildlife. It also offers an Interpretive Center, where visitors can get up-close and personal with live snakes, frogs, and more! Springbrook offers our community the opportunity to get closer to nature and is a valuable resource for learning about our environment.
Thanks to you all for your generous donations.
