Mission: The Outreach Committee reaches beyond the FUUSE walls by providing meaningful ways to connect, support, and enrich others through service, spirit, and financial contributions. We:
- Research the needs of our community
- Call or personally interview service agencies
- Invite speakers to discuss their program needs
- Conduct surveys to determine FUUSE priorities
The third Sunday of each month has been designated as Give-It-Away Sunday when the general offering will be distributed to groups serving the community.
Educate the congregation and provide support for the local agencies providing services to our communities. Two local agencies FUUSE actively supports are the St Vincent d Paul Community Assistance Center, which provides food and emergency assistance to local needy families, and Seacoast Family Promise, which provides temporary housing and assistance to homeless families.
Facilitate a volunteer connection between these agencies and the FUUSE congregation.
Provide financial assistance to these agencies.
Collection of needed items: children’s clothing for WIC, the Santa for Seniors Program with Meals-on-Wheels,Thanksgiving basket meals distributed to local families, food for the Feed My Lambs pantry at Exeter Congregational Church.
