Beyond Ourselves

Our community outreach includes the activities of the UUCA Social Justice Committee, our connections to the UUA through Study-Action programs, UUSC programs like Guest AT Your Table and affiliations with a variety of community groups. The SJC’s future goals will be to continue our well-established activities in support of racial justice, LGBTQ rights, and interfaith activities; and to expand our activities to focus on Reproductive Justice and work towards Green Sanctuary status.

Social Justice Committee

Masters Table Soup Kitchen

The Master’s Table Soup Kitchen, located in downtown Augusta is run by Golden Harvest Food Bank and provides a daily hot meal for approximately 300 of Augusta’s hungry. Members volunteer their time and culinary talent several Saturdays each year forming a UUCA Cook Team to prepare and serve the noon-time meal for Augusta’s hungry. If you’d like to participate you can sign up in the hall at church.

Spooky To Be Hungry

Spooky To Be Hungry, founded in 1996 by UUCA member Evelyn Browne with strong support from other UUCA members, is an annual grassroots food and monetary drive running throughout the month of October. Spooky is primarily a neighbor-to-neighbor effort, but now also includes organized drives in many schools, businesses, faith communities and civic organizations. UUCA’s R.E. program spearheads church participation every year.
