Additional Ministries at FUUSE include these:
Also affectionately known as the “Casserole Ministry,” the Caring Committee works with the minister to provide care and support for congregation members in times of need. This includes rides, food, visits, and support at all levels.
This committee visits the home bound of our members and offers them companionship, communication and comfort. Contact: Yvonne Zinicola – firstname.lastname@example.org
The Hospitality Committee plans and oversees the Sunday Social Hour, Circle Dinners, and other group activities that promote fellowship among our church community. They welcome new comers and guests and integrate them into further participation and membership of the Society. The chair is elected at the annual meeting. Other members are appointed by the chair.

The Knitting Ministry has been active since 2006 with a group of enterprising folks who love to knit and crochet. We create shawls for our congregational members and friends to bring warmth, strength, and comfort during difficult times. We also support other charitable organizations such as Afghans for Afghans and we make hats for the homeless and blankets for babies. Novice knitters and those would like to learn will find encouragement along with a sense of connectedness and camaraderie. We meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month in the Parsonage from 6:30 to 8. Donations of yarn are always gratefully accepted. Contact Anne Tufts: firstname.lastname@example.org
Aging to Sageing
In May 2014, FUUSE started an “Age-ing to Sage-ing” group (now Aging to Sageing). The name came from a book with that title, written by a Rabbi/Buddhist in the 1990’s and re-issued in 2014. Polly Friedrichs, inspired by the book, wanted to start a group, and Merci Voorhees was chosen as the first group leader. So many people signed up for this, and small groups were preferable for great group discussion, so a second group was started by Ginny Berrien.
