Coming in January, we’ll be asking you to share how you volunteer within and beyond our walls as we commemorate 50 years of MSUS. Watch for a chalice poster that will get filled with flames representing our light in the world. Details will be posted soon!
Join Us for a Day of Service
The MSUS Social Action Committee is planning a Day of Service on Saturday, March 11, 2017. We are putting together a number of opportunities for MSUS members and friends of all ages to give back to the community beyond our walls. The Day of Service will include service projects both at MSUS and offsite at partner charities around the Fridley community. Projects will include:
- Hope 4 Youth
- Alexandra House
- Homeless Care Packages
- Butterfly Puddling Pools
- Filling up Little Free Libraries
Please be sure to mark your calendars to join us on Saturday, March 11.
For December’s Special Collection, MSUS donated $610 to replenish the Minister’s Discretionary Fund. This is a fund that Rev. Laura can use as needed to help members of our congregation in times of crisis. Thanks to you all for your generous donations.
The Social Action Committee also used leftover funds from November’s Special Collection to provide 10 Christmas meals to Fridley families in need, via the Fridley school district.
Our January Special Collection will go to continue our church’s support of Meals on Wheels in Fridley and the surrounding suburbs. A dedicated team of MSUS members led by Merle D regularly delivers meals to our neighbors in need. Let Merle know if you are able to participate.
