SOCIAL JUSTICE and UUCG
UUCG has an active Social Justice program which encompasses so much of our beliefs and values.
There are many local non-profits that we support either with volunteered time, donations or financial contributions.
Adult Literacy Center in Brunswick. Needed help here includes tutoring, office help, donations for textbooks and a scholarship fund.
FaithWorks Ministries, an ecumenical group drawing from many area churches.
Sparrow's Nest Food Bank: Our main involvement is collecting items for them to distribute. Needs include canned goods, paper products, non-perishable foods, toiletries, and household items.
The Well: The Well is a hospitality center for people who are homeless, providing resources such as a shower, laundry room, phone, internet access, and address for correspondence. Contact them for ways to assist.
Glynn Environmental Coalition, a community organization dedicated to providing a clean environment and healthy economy in the Golden Isles area. We have participated in roadside trash clean ups with this organization.
Martin Luther King, Jr. parade each January. Traditionally, we gather together and march on this day.
The Robert S. Abbott Institute for Race Unity Institute. The Robert S. Abbott Race Unity Institute envisions a community where healing and reconciliation are commonplace amongst people of all identities, social justice is upheld and honored, and people honestly engage in history in order to live more truthfully in the present.
And, in the past few years, the church has provided assistance to Safe Harbor, a shelter for youths, STAR Foundation, Coastal Coalition for Children, Habitat for Humanity, Golden Isles Arts and Humanities Association, and United Way.
SOCIAL JUSTICE SUNDAYS
The Social Justice Team directs the service on the second Sunday of each month, bringing in speakers, films and displays on social justice issues in our community. The service is at 10:30 a.m., the same time as our regular worship services on other Sundays.
