Service projects have always been an important part of religious education at UUFN. Our Youth Group has been involved with both Code Purple and the Newark Empowerment Center for several years preparing Hygiene Bags and Go Bags three times a year. This year we all got to be involved with the Go Bags during an October worship service.
This month the youth group is planning a lock-in and will also be organizing a collection for the SPCA.
After visiting the Hindu Temple and Islamic Mosque, the COA group will visit Cornerstone Methodist and have a guest speaker on the Jewish faith. Additionally, they will be planning their annual service project collecting food for the Newark Area Welfare Committee’s Christmas Boxes. Roots and Shoots will be continuing to raise money for Puerto Rico and beginning to practice for the annual holiday pageant.
On November 26th, all the RE Classes will come together as a group to prepare Stone Soup and recycled ornaments. These will be on sale at Coffee Hour to raise money for our service projects.
