Guest at Your Table
This additional activity takes place around the holiday season. For more than 60 years, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee has advanced human rights and social justice in the United States and internationally. As an independent, membership organization, the UUSC promotes human rights and social justice worldwide with the support of 25,000 members and supporters. In other words us, you and me. The UUSC is an associate member organization of the Unitarian Universalist Association, but receives no general financial support from the UUA. More importantly, the UUSC does not receive and federal or state funding.
Jim Gordon Chili Cookoff
In honor of our dear friend, Jim Gordon, the church holds a Chili Cookoff every year. Contestants cook up a batch of chili and visitors and members alike can vote for their favorite recipes.
Similar to the chili cookoff, the church also hosts an annual soup cookoff. The format is the same, with attendees voting on their favorite soup recipe.
The rummage sale is a major additional activity for First Unitarian. A large group of volunteers coordinate collection of donated items and the setup up of the multi-day sale in the church building. The rummage sale provides a variety of items for sale at low prices for the wider community.
