Sharing the Plate

Each month, we give 50% of the unrestricted cash that is collected at Sunday services to a charitable organization that does work consistent with our UU principles.

 

Soup Kitchen

Once each month a group of volunteers serves meals at the Meadville Area Soup Kitchen as a way to help alleviate some of the symptoms of poverty in our region.

 

Standing on the Side of Love

We support Standing on the Side of Love (SSL), a public advocacy campaign sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association which promotes respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

 

Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

As a congregation, we are proud to support the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) in their work to advance human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world. The UUSC was founded during the early days of World War II with the help of Rev. Waitstill and Martha Sharp. Rev. Sharp was minister of our church from 1933 to 1936. We raise funds for the UUSC each year through the Guest At Your Table program.
