  • Our congregation has made several donations to the World Food Program
  • We also sold copies of the cookbook Soup for Syria and sold soup made from recipes from the book at our 2016  May Festival. All proceeds were donated to benefit refugees from Syria.
  • Our minister, Rev. Dr. M’ellen Kennedy, was a founder of Interfaith Bridge, whose purpose is addressing Islamophobia and building bridges of understanding and friendship among non-Muslims and Muslims.
