Friendsgiving and the Caring Bags Project

Hello FUUBC! Here’s everything you need to know about Friendsgiving and the Caring Bags Project!

Friendsgiving will be held on Sunday, November 27th, following the service.  It’s a chance for us to enjoy a feast with friends in community, celebrating potluck-style the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Below you will find a link to a sign up genius for you to reserve your spot and to share what you plan to bring.

The Caring Bags Project is a church-wide initiative that we will be collecting for throughout November.  We are joining the RE program in making Caring Bags for our homeless brothers and sisters.  Donations can be dropped off at a designated area in the Gerber Room throughout November.  On Sunday, December 4th, we will create a church-wide assembly line after service to put the Caring Bags together.  They will then be dispersed to the community.

Here is a list of possible donation items that you can be collecting: socks, hats, gloves, bottled water, gallon size plastic bags, drawstring cloth bags or gently used backpacks, soap, travel sized tissues, sample sized lotions, shampoos and conditioners, chapstick, band aids, hand sanitizer, cough drops, tooth brushes, toothpaste, combs and brushes, deodorants, hot hands, tampons/pads, travel wet wipes.

If you have questions, please contact Lauren Fritz at or Ginny Chudgar at

We can’t wait to celebrate in the spirit of giving and togetherness with you!!
