United Nations Sunday
Rev. Meg Mathieson
United Nations Sunday celebrates the work of the United Nations and your Unitarian Universalist Office at the United Nations. The 2020 theme is “All In for Climate Justice: People, Power, Planet.” Join us for a joyful service celebrating our beautiful mother Gaia and the great work that UUs around the world have been doing to heal her.
Focus Collection: October
The October Focus Collection will benefit Front Steps Housing and Services, formerly known as Transitional Housing and one of our long time community partners. Their vision is transforming lives to end the cycle of homelessness and their mission is to provide individuals and families who are mentally disabled and/or economically disadvantaged in Cuyahoga County with permanent supportive housing and lifelong solutions to increase self-sufficiency and independence. Focus Collection donations can be made through the Vanco Give Plus website, or by mailing a check to SWUU at 6320 Royalton Road, North Royalton, Oh 44133.
