Here are additional ways our First Universalist congregants put their faith into action:
- Day of Service -- On February 2, 2013, more than 400 First Universalist congregants offered more than 1,500 hours of service at one of 22 projects going on simultaneously in various locations around the Twin Cities. Learn more here.
- Operation Warm Hearts, Warm Hands: Each year we collect new coats to give to those in need. In 2012, we helped deliver over 250 coats to two special needs schools in the area. Contact: Sherrilee Carter, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Global Gift Fair: Jewelry. Wild Rice and Maple Syrup. Bells and more. Each December we fill the Social Hall with ethnic non-profit organizations from all over the world selling their unique goods to support their mission. This is fair trade at its finest! Contact: Marjie Smith, 612-825-1125.
- Native American Connections Committee: NACC has two projects. Thankgsgiving Day we will be serving dinner at an outside location; we collect donations of non-perishable food and money, and recruit volunteers. We also sell Native harvest products. Contact: Kathy Steinhauer, 612-869-3866.
"It is service to others that is transcendent. This has the capacity to make us no longer ordinary. To be a part of this community is transcendent. ... Every single interaction that you have can send out a message of hope."
