Social Action (Outreach)

The Social Action Committee promotes the involvement of the Church in expressing its Christian concerns for the community and the world. We offer support to the LGBTQ community through our participation in the annual Pride Parades in San Francisco and Santa Rosa. If you have not seen the “Church Ladies and Gents” in action, you are missing out!

* We also offer support through the national United Church of Christ by participating in 4 offerings around:

• One Great Hour of Sharing which is an ecumenical group supporting the Church World Service;

• Neighbors in Need, collecting money for the Church’s Wider Mission;

• Christmas Fund which is used to assist retired UCC pastors;

• Strengthen the Church, a fund to award grants to grassroots church projects.

* We offer both physical and financial support to the following organizations::

1. Sonoma Overnight Support
2. North Bay Organizing Project
3. El Verano School
4. End World Hunger Foundation

* Support for Church Ladies and Gents for Gay Rights to attend the annual San Francisco Pride Parade: paid registration.
