Living Justice at Reeb

Taking action to bring peace and justice in our world  is one of the ways we give of ourselves.  Our JRUUC Justice Leadership Team has been working to create areas of focus and opportunities to engage, and we’re ready to share these with our congregation!  And you’ll have a chance to talk with members of the different focus teams after the service.

  • The Share the Plate recipient for Sunday 11/5/2023 and 11/12/2023 is the Goodman Community Center Thanksgiving Basket Drive.

    For decades the Goodman Community Center has been providing families with everything they need to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home. They started by serving several hundred families. This year they will serve four thousand.
