Each week 25% of the undesignated cash offerings in the Sunday collection plate are donated to a worthwhile community organization chosen by the Social Justice Council.
For the month of January the recipient will be Shelter Now, a 70 bed homeless shelter, located at 43 Saint Casimer Drive in Meriden providing emergency services to men, women, and women with children who, without this program, would be residing in the street. Additionally, their transitional living program provides housing for up to 8 men and includes coordination of community services, employment assistance, vocational training, medical referrals, counseling, substance abuse treatment/referral, recreational activities, evening meals, and case management services. They also provide supportive case management and services to several residents who have AIDS/HIV.
In February the recipient will be Meriden-Wallingford Chrysalis, a local non-profit agency offering no-cost comprehensive community-based services for adults and children impacted by domestic violence.

Unitarian Universalist congregations are independent, self-governing and self-sustaining. Our programs for adults, our religious education for children and our outreach are entirely funded by our members and by friends of this congregation who support the work we do. You can contribute on line via PayPal® using the Donate button below. You can also make a pledge or update your pledge information.
With its roots in the Jewish and Christian faith traditions, Unitarian Universalism is a religion that honors the wisdom of all of the great religions of the world, guided by reason and the experience of each individual.
Our principles call us to honor the worth of each individual, respect the right of conscience, and call us to care for our planet.

There's always something going on at our meetinghouse and around the community. CHECK OUT OUR EVENTS CALENDAR.
The Children and Youth Religious Education Program, led by Molly Nolan, our Director of Religious Education provides opportunities for youngsters to grow in the understanding of who they are, within the framework of our Unitarian Universalist Principles. Classes are held at the same time as our Sunday worship service.
Unitarian Universalist congregations are governed by their members through a Board of Trustees elected every year. Every member has a say in how this church operates. Our President for the 2014 - 2015 year is Megumi Yamamoto, and our Vice President and chair of the Leaderhip Council is Bob Reutenauer. Meet our Board Members.
