Food Pantry Collection - Monday, April 6 and Tuesday, April 7, 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

FoodPantry2Many of you have been asking, “What can we do to help during this crisis?” Our congregation typically donates food to the Faith Baptist Church Pantry, which is currently closed due to Covid-19. The Faith Baptist Church Community is now dependent on receiving food from the Island Heart Food Pantry, which is sponsored by Mt. Sinai Congregational Church. Keith Owens of KO Cares is picking up food from Island Heart Food Pantry, and delivering the food to ensure the health of the Faith Baptist community members. The pantry is currently in need of the following items: canned tuna fish and meats, canned vegetables, rice, jelly, spaghetti sauce, cereal, oatmeal, boxed and bottled juices and boxed milk products. If you would like to help by providing any of these items, it would be most appreciated.

Peggy Fort and Lori Jones will be in the UUFSB parking lot on Monday, April 6 and Tuesday April 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There will be bags and boxes placed in a row so you can easily drive in and drop off your contributions. We will maintain the recommended distance for the health and safety of all. The donations will be delivered to Island Heart on Tuesday afternoon.

For those who would prefer to make a financial contribution toward the purchase of food, John Morris is willing to collect money and go shopping. Contact John at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

UUA General Assembly - June 24-28, 2020

GA 2020Year after year, General Assembly gives us an opportunity to pause and be together, reminding us of our connection to each other and to our shared Unitarian Universalist faith. In that regard, General Assembly 2020 is no different. While the Conference Services team and GA Planning Committee are working to adapt to the unprecedented needs of this moment, the mission of our work remains the same.

We are monitoring local and national news, as well as hotel and conference service industry organizations, for updates, protocols, and advice about the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. We are discerning how General Assembly will be shaped to meet changes and challenges, but we are sure that General Assembly will take place from June 24 – June 28, 2020.

In the weeks ahead, we will keep you informed to this very fluid situation. Unitarian Universalism teaches us to stay connected, especially in uncertain times. We are hopeful and encourage you take good care of yourselves and one another even as we hold those who are directly affected by this crisis in our thoughts and prayers.
