Bucket of Hope

Each week we collect items at our Sunday service to give to local groups serving people in our area who could use a little help. This quarter we are supporting The Nest Empowerment Center.  

It’s an after school program that provides snacks, tutoring, and safe place for struggling, transient, and homeless teens.  They are one division of the Project Georgetown program.

Individually packaged:
  •   Peanut butter and crackers
  •   Granola bars
  •   Applesauce (all flavors)
  •   Chef Boyardee products (spaghetti, etc)
  •   Mac & cheese
Socks (Teen sized boys and girls) all sizes (short sport socks or regular socks)

Tithing Update

Unity Church of Georgetown is a tithing church. We believe in the principle of tithing and have asked our Benevolence Committee to make recommendations as to which organizations we should take into consideration when allocating our church’s monthly tithes.

The Benevolence Committee  recommended to the Board  to tithe to the following organizations: Unity Worldwide Ministries, Silent Unity, Food for Friends, HOPE Alliance and The Caring Place. We will make year-end contributions to Reindeer Run and Operation Warm.
