10:30am Sunday Service | Community Ministry: Breaking Down Walls
Ask not what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive and go do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive. – Rev. Howard Thurman. What does community ministry look like for a Unitarian Universalist minister? What is different about doing "church" outside of "church?" What do you do all day, anyway?

9:15am Drop-in Discussion | Tiny Home Village
A "Tiny Home Village" of mixed income for homeless and low-income folks is in Rochester's future. REACH was awarded a grant for a Tiny Home. Homeless Heartbeats/SJC has invited social worker Andy Carey to share its local evolution, as mental health and addiction issues and homelessness rise. Q & A after Andy's talk.
