First United Church of Christ’s Service and Social Responsibility Committee is starting an all-church service project intended to improve our community’s wellness. To be successful, we are asking for the help of church members of all ages and a range of passions. This service project will be a form of outreach to the community for First UCC and a fundraiser for Rice County Mental Health Collective.
We will be creating Calmness Kits, a small box we hope will make a big difference in people’s lives. Inside the kit will be many tools to help people create calm in their lives including: a sand meditation box, a CD/MP3 with calming music and visualizations, and a book with art, poetry, and answers to the question “What helps you create calm?”. These kits will be sold as a fundraiser. They will be given out to people in the community.
You will hear much more about this over the coming months. We are looking for people who are willing to serve on a Task Force and/or serve as point people for the various parts of the project. If you are interested in helping or have ideas for the project please email CalmnessKitFirstUCC@gmail.com.
