Christmas Eve in our former sanctuary

Come and Deck the Halls at our new church home on Saturday, December 3! Afterward, you'll find our Giving Tree in the Social Hall to support local families this holiday season.

Shop local at our Hand-Crafted Holiday Sale on Saturday, December 10 from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Vendors may contact to request an application form.

On Sunday, December 18 after worship, our Committee to End the New Jim Crow will accept donations of used paperback books for Ingham and Eaton County inmates. Please bring your extra paperbacks (no hardcover) or purchase a couple from our Grove Street Book Shop just off the Atrium at church. This is a way for us to provide inmates with knowledge, quiet entertainment, and spiritual enrichment through reading during a difficult time in their lives. Inmates’ specific requests include spiritual/religious, mystery, and western books. 2017 book collections will be held on the following Sundays: January 8, March 19, June 18, September 17, and December 17.

Throughout the year, we connect with many social justice events and projects out in the wider community.

Follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our church email list to find out about upcoming events as they are organized.

Banner Bearers volunteer to hold our church's Standing on the Side of Love banner at local rallies and other events. (Contact Social Action Chair Judy Olson or the church office to join the contact list.)

Church members are affiliated with several interfaith and secular justice coalitions that sometimes hold meetings at our church, such as the Michigan Collaborative to End Mass Incarceration, the Mid-Michigan Immigration Coalition, the Michigan Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, and the Greater Lansing Network Against War and Injustice.

The Social Justice Committee (which meets on first Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.) has paid memberships in various local collaborative groups, including the Citizens Alliance on Prisons and Public Spending - MI and the Greater Lansing UN Association.

Our congregation is connected with UU justice movements on many levels, from local to global, through the Common Reads, Congregational Study/Action Issues, and Statements of Conscience by the Unitarian Universalist Association, the Michigan UU Social Justice Network, the Chalice Lighters program of the MidAmerica Region, Standing on the Side of Love, and the international UU Service Committee. Our faith is also affiliated with the UU United Nations Office.

For the past several years, the UUSC has recognized our congregation with the Creating Justice Banner Society Award because more than a quarter of our members are also UUSC members.

All are welcome to join us!
