Monday, January 16, 2018: Save the date for the Peninsula Multifaith Coalition’s annual Martin Luther King Day of Service! Last year over 30 UUFRC volunteers, including several families, participated in events ranging from choral singing to tutoring to crafts and gardening. We also need youth or other volunteers to help with the beading project Tovis will be leading.
Later this month, online registration to participate in a volunteer project will be available. Please watch the Yahoo list for more information.
For more information about the event, check out the PMC website at: http://www.peninsulamultifaith.org/upcoming-events-links/
Sunday, December 10: Please attend our quarterly Interfaith Committee Meeting after service at 11:45 am in the Block Room to help us prepare for the MLK Day of Service and plan a possible interfaith forum and service for the spring. We are also open to your ideas for activities and interfaith exchanges. We need more participation in the committee in order to turn our ideas into actual events.
Saturday, December 16 is the next food sort for Second Harvest at the Belmont Mosque. This event occurs monthly and serves 100 families. Our help is encouraged for set-up and food distribution, which runs from about 7:00am-9:30 am. The mosque is located at 621 Masonic Way in Belmont. Please contact John Anning at email@example.com for more details about this volunteering activity. It’s been great having UUFRC youth participate this fall! Mark your calendars for January 27 and February 24 as well.
Sunday, December 18 is our next UUFRC Interfaith Committee meeting in the Back Lounge after service at 11:45 am. We would love to have more people involved in interfaith activities and in helping to plan upcoming events. Please join us if you can.
Message from Tovis Page, Interfaith Committee Co-Chair: “It has been a great privilege and joy to serve as UUFRC’s representative to the PMC since we officially joined the Coalition in spring 2016. After MLK Day 2018, I will be stepping down from this position due to changes in my personal schedule. So the role of PMC rep is waiting for one of you! This is a fantastic opportunity to build relationships with neighbors from across the religious spectrum, to deepen your understanding of different cultures and faiths, and to join in multifaith events and service projects offered to the wider community. If you would like to learn more about the role of PMC representative and what it involves, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org”
Please also feel free to contact Beth Harrison (email@example.com), Interfaith Committee Co-Chair, with any questions or suggestions about interfaith activities.
