Community service and social action are important parts of our Unitarian Universalist faith. Our children, teens, and adults can (and do!) make a positive difference in our world! We want our members and friends to know that helping others can be simple, enjoyable, and enriching.
We live our principles and get involved as often as we can. Learn about our primary efforts using the links below or the menu at left:

Additional service projects at CUUC include:
First Responders Appreciation Day – September 11
Each year on September 11, we distribute baskets of homemade and store-bought cookies, snacks, and goodies to local fire and police stations to say thank you for their service and dedication. Volunteers help by baking, preparing, or purchasing items for the baskets, packing and wrapping them, and delivering them to the stations.
Holiday Angel Tree (for clients of God’s Pantry):
Each December, we obtain a list of families and children in need from God’s Pantry, and set up an “angel tree.” Members and friends can select a child or family from the tree and purchase suitable gifts, which are then delivered (unwrapped) to the parents via God’s Pantry volunteers. In this way we help brighten the season for youngsters who may not otherwise receive any presents.
We serve fair trade coffee and tea at our Sunday coffee hour, and recycle the paper, cans, and bottles used by the church. We collect clean styrofoam containers and packing materials for delivery to a recycling center, and gladly accept flattened cardboard boxes for use in the Community Harvest Garden as organic weed control.
