It is more difficult to organize a peace than to win a war; 
but the fruits of victory will be lost if the peace is not organized.
			--Aristotle

Social Action

Love is the doctrine of this church,
the search for truth is its sacrament
and Service is its prayer......

    You will find UU’s serving these organizations:
  • Cancer Support Community We organized Friends of Gilda, which is working to establish a Cancer Support Community in the Greenville, NC area. We will have Gilda’s Clubhouse, with a warm, welcoming environment and a program of social and emotional support for men, women, and children who have cancer, their families, and their close friends. Our mission will be to ensure men, women, and children touched by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. Our innovative program will be an essential complement to medical care- providing networking and support groups, workshops, education, and social activities. For more information contact Betty Greer info@cancersupportenc.org.
  • Greenville Community Shelter Action Group The "Shelter Action Group" is aimed at developing projects that directly help the Greenville Community Shelter pursue its goals of helping those who have become homeless. Current projects include donations by UUCG members to the Shelter's "Daily Needs", critical items needed for Shelter daily life. Next is the work of UUCG volunteers to help with the daily process of residents' evening "check-in" at the facility. Our third helping choice is to select certain events for recognition of suitable residents. For example, for 2011 Mothers' Day we provided a rose and personalized card for each woman resident. The plan is to continue these initiatives and add to the program where feasible.
  • Eastern Carolina Interfaith Alliance, begun after 9/11 by UUCG members, friends and a former minister. The Interfaith Alliance sponsors Prayers for Peace every 4th Monday (except December) at 7 pm September – May at various congregations and often at UUCG. Prayers for Peace is followed at 7:45pm by interesting interfaith discussions. The Interfaith Alliance sponsors a community wide Multi-faith Thanksgiving Worship Service every year on the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving.
