The Faithful Action Council at First Universalist Church guides our ministry of Faithful Action. The Council provides opportunities for church members and friends to act with humility, courage, and compassion as we work for justice. We act with a racial justice lens, through community partnerships, as we address systemic inequity and create positive change through education, advocacy, direct service, and generosity.
A Community Partnership is a relationship between First Universalist and an organization that shares our vision of love and justice. We work through Community Partnerships in order to leverage energy, commitment, and expertise. We share our resources in service of the organization’s vision. First Universalist currently has six Community Partners: Augsburg Fairview Academy, Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative, EMERGE, Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light, Simpson Housing Services, and Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.
Each partnership is led by a congregant Team Lead at First Universalist and supported by a group of dedicated volunteers.
If you are interested in submitting an application for a new Community Partner in which you will be the Team Lead, please plan to attend this informational session:
