Social Justice Ministry Action Teams carry out activities focused on specific areas of concern. Most teams work independently, but also work with other teams and members of the congregation on shared social justice issues. Meetings are open to visitors and potential members.

RRUUC has a number of ongoing social justice groups but new energies, needs and ideas do arise. The Social Justice Ministry Team wants to assure that those that become full-fledged new groups reflect the passions of a critical mass of members (a minimum of five persons). Contact the Social Justice Ministry Team to apply to create a new Team or lead a discrete effort.

Justice Sunday

Service with Rev. Amanda Weatherspoon, Associate Minister, Building. After we return from social distancing due to the pandemic, we will resume with Meet the Ministries, 10:15am and 12:15pm, after each service during fellowship hour, Fellowship Hall.

Justice Sundays highlight the holistic work of our Social Justice groups. They usually take place on the second Sunday with a service centered around broad justice work and issues that the congregation in involved in. It’s a time to invite the larger community into the rich work of our many leaders. Each social justice group is invited to “table” during both coffee hours to include letter writing campaigns, events, signups, etc. The Social Justice Ministry Team members will engage folks and send them in the direction for their interests.

If you are an RRUUC social justice group leader and would like to share the good work of your group, please signup here for a table.

Fall Vegetable Garden Outing: Schedule a Masked/Distanced Visit with the Gardener Bring your family for an outing to the RRUUC vegetable garden! The garden is outside behind the Fellowship Hall, and in most years the Religious Education (RE) programs sow seeds and harvest. Now we have carrots, green beans, and cherry tomatoes to pick. We also have garlic and winter greens to plant. One family at a time will come to the garden and be assisted by a Gardener. Everyone will mask and social distance. Schedule a 30-60 minute outing for any day or time in the week. And you don’t have to have kids to sign up! This program is approved by the RRUUC Covid 19 committee, and sponsored by the Earth Ministry and the RE program. To learn more or schedule a visit, contact Walter Weiss.
