Community Sunday featuring Center For Food Action
Each congregational year, we have three months with five Sundays. This year, we will set aside one Sunday each of those
months to both celebrate and support a community partner. This is an opportunity for CUC to use it’s worship time for us
to focus our collective loving kindness and sense of justice on those who share our community. Our first Community Sunday
will feature the Center for Food Action. We will hear from them how the pandemic has impacted hunger in Bergen County
and we will have opportunities throughout the week for each of us to directly contribute to supporting CFA’s clients. This
Community Day helps to round out work Installation weekend by reminding us that serving our community is part of our
mission and our shared ministry together.
