How do we practice our values in the world? Here are a few upcoming opportunities:
- Each Sunday we give away our open plate offerings–to Interfaith Ministries’ Meals on Wheels and the monthly Share the Plate recipients. In December our offerings go to the Emerson Benevolence Fund, providing immediate financial assistance to members of the congregation or the community who are experiencing a financial emergency.
- In December we’ll collect winter clothing, sleeping bags, and blankets for Houston’s homeless youth. Bring your offerings to the Mitten Tree!
