7am-12pm and 2pm-5pm
Outside at UCC’s Children’s Closet

Join us for a fun day of packing boxes with school uniforms and distributing them to FWISD School Counselors. This UCC volunteer opportunity will ensure a smooth start to the school year for FWISD counselors who facilitate the distribution of school uniforms (donated by the Children’s Closet) to vulnerable elementary students in the district.
Volunteers will pack “Starter Kits,” that include uniform shirts and pants, for 40 schools. Other volunteers will load the boxes into counselors’ cars as they drive through the church parking lot later in the day. The packing and loading work will be strenuous and the weather is likely to be hot.

An open-hearted church for curious minded people
ONLINE SECURITY REMINDER: Recently a number of local churches have received several reports of members being contacted through email or social media sites such as Facebook by fake profiles claiming to be church staff. Some reminders about online security:
  • Be very careful if you receive messages that sound in any way suspicious or arrive at suspicious times, such as during the middle of the night.
  • Some of these messages contain links that, when clicked, can download malware to your computer. Don't click on any links received through Facebook Messenger or direct messages from Instagram.
  • UCC ministers and staff do not use social media direct messaging to ask for assistance or money.
  • Only give money through secure, trusted sources, and if you are not sure, contact the church first.
