A big part of Unitarian Universalism is acting on our principles. We do this through social action and education, as well as through monetary contribution.
The Social and Environmental Justice Team (SEJT) coordinates a movie to educate the community on various topics. Recent screenings have included:
- Bag It!
- Shock Doctrine
- That Sugar Movie
- Alive Inside
After Service Speakers Series
Usually scheduled on fifth Sundays, the SEJT presents a guest speaker after the service. October's speaker was from Food and Water Watch and spoke about our local steam/gas injection oil drilling.
Supporting Fair Trade Organic Farmers
After service each week, we enjoy an hour of Food and Fellowship. Members volunteer to supply snacks and the congregation provides complimentary coffee and tea. We also have coffee, tea, and chocolate available for purchase.
