Executive Committee Members:
It has been 20 years since First Universalist Church developed a strategic plan about what we want for our future. Thanks to the participation and dedication of hundreds of congregants in Winter/Spring 2012, we have re-focused our vision.
If we truly live into our mission to Give, Receive and Grow... what does that look like, over the next five years? Who are we called to be? What are we called to do? How will we become the church we want to be?

More than 400 teenagers and a few hardy adults -- including a dozen participants from First Universalist Church -- slept outside in cardboard boxes during “A Night on the Street” Friday, April 20, in the parking lot of Plymouth Congregational Church in Minneapolis. They did so to raise awareness of youth homelessness and to raise funds for affordable housing for young adults. More than $1,385 was raised through individual contributions solicited by First Universalist youth participating in the event. In honor of their efforts, the offerings collected in children’s RE classes all year long -- totalling over $1,300 -- will be given as a “matching donation,” meaning that this year our First Universalist children and youth contributed over $2,700 toward ending youth homelessness.
