Announcing 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.

To help us plan and prepare, please join the Social Action Committee on Monday, November 28, at 5:30 p.m. Note that helping with the Day of Service does not commit you to joining the Social Action Committee.

Do you have an extra seat/s at your Thanksgiving table?

We are looking for congregants who are willing to make room for one or more congregant at your Thanksgiving table this year. Please contact Rev. Laura by email or at 763-710-0435. We will be gathering hosts until Sunday, November 6. If you are looking for people to join for Thanksgiving, there will be sign-ups available on Sunday November 13 and 20th.

Race:  The Power of Illusion

The final segment of Race: The Power of Illusion film viewing and discussion will be on Tuesday, November 29, at 7:00 pm. If you want to watch the first two, they are available on YouTube: “The Difference Between Us” and “The Story We Tell”.

Special Collections

October’s Special Collection went to MUUSJA, the Minnesota Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Alliance. MUUSJA works to develop the capacity of Minnesota Unitarian Universalist individuals and congregations to work effectively for systemic change and social justice.

November’s Special Collection on Sunday the 13th will go to the purchase Thanksgiving dinners for families in need, as identified by the Fridley School District. This will be our third year providing full Thanksgiving meals for families that otherwise would go without.

Thanks to you all for your generous donations. If you have any questions or ideas for the Social Action Committee, please contact the committee chair, Brock Ray, at any time.
