​Buildings & Grounds Committee Meeting

Tuesday, June 11, 2019 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Location: Conway Middle Room

Want to make a difference you can see?

Check out the ​Buildings & Grounds Committee!

Whether you don’t know which end of a screwdriver to use or you can build a home from scratch, B&G is looking for YOU!  We have various projects you can enjoy like (1) helping to find and coordinate the best contractors or (2) getting your hands dirty outside on the grounds, or handyman jobs – light painting, electrical, carpentry, etc.  (Yes, that should probably be “handyperson” but we can only carry PC so far.)

We meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 5:30 – 7:00 PM in Conway MIddle.  Stop by and find out what we do!  Request copies of our Minutes be emailed to you.  Join in and brag to your friends about things like a new bookshelf you helped install (provided it stays up, of course …).  Anyway, come on by and find out more!  Fame, glory, fun and more can be yours!

For more info, please email us at

UUHP (Unitarian Universalists Helping People):

Monday, June 10, 2019 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Front Office

UUHP (Unitarian Universalists Helping People):

Formerly the Homeless Ministry, UUHP meets at 6:00pm on the second Monday of each month in the UUSP office.

Through the generosity of our congregation, the UUHP Ministry receives from fund raisers such as Stone Soup, monthly pancake breakfasts, and share-the-plate, allowing us to donate to the Free Clinic Woman’s Shelter, Daystar, Family Resource Center (LGTBQ),  Family Promise and Celebrate Outreach. We support these local independent service providers for the economically challenged because they are proficient in how they are able to offer assistance.

Coordinating and   improving the Friday night picnic allows us to work with others in the community to help offer nourishing  meals for the food insecure

In the coming year we look forward to continuing our existing programs working on solutions to house the un-housed. Join UUHPs.

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 7:30am - 8:00am
Location: Gilmour Hall

Midweek Dawn Meditation (7:30-8:00 a.m.) for a boost  through the week.  

Weekly, beginning Wednesday October 3rd, UU St. Pete will start adding more meditation and contemplative prayer gatherings to our church week.  It seems that our world is still in need of deeper understanding and deeper caring.  For that, it seems we also need more of the community and the inner peace which promote that  understanding and caring.  Please take time to join us and add some light to the dawn.  Coffee and tea after, for those with time.

Farmworker/Immigrant Planning Meeting

Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm

This Social Justice committee supports Farmworker and Immigrant Families by identifying and organizing our Church’s  participation in projects that support these immigrant communities via direct outreach as well as advocate for systemic change. There are so many ways to help these underserved and often neglected populations. We welcome your ideas and encourage your involvement in this very loving and meaningful work.

At our monthly planning meetings we review status of existing projects and plan new educational and advocacy events as well as steps for outreach to specific refugee and immigrant families.  

Please join us -- all are welcome.

Social Justice Planning Meeting

Thursday, June 6, 2019 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Front Office

At this time the UU St Pete Social Justice Committee includes these five ministries: 

  • American Promise 
  • Fair Trade Coffee & Chocolate Sales
  • Farmworker/Immigrant Families
  • FAST
  • UU’s Helping People 

Our events and projects support those in-need, address local and wide-ranging injustices and the building of local justice networks. Some projects are Outreach; like providing a meal for the less fortunate and supporting refugee families’ basic and educational needs.

This past year we continued our Justice efforts; wanting to address systemic issues. Examples include advocating against punitive immigration legislation at the state and federal levels, working with USF and other organizations on the Tiny Homes for Veterans and Homeless Bill of Rights, joining the FAST network of Churches to increase affordable housing, improve schools and the juvenile justice system and economic justice thru our FairTrade Chocolate and Coffee sales. 

We also maintained and strengthened our partnerships with other organizations – The Society of Friends, Coalition of Downtown Churches, Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services Refugee Resettlement Office and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. 

We encourage any Church member or friend to be engaged in the various aspects of our Social Justice ministries. Though the above ministries plan and communicate their respective projects -- we consider all members of the congregation to be members of the Social Justice Committee and consciously design our projects to facilitate the involvement of a wide range of members and friends of all ages.
