Christmas Eve Offering Recipients:

We give away our entire Christmas Eve offering every year. This year, you can support one, two, or all of these worthy organizations.

Interchange Food Pantry, a food pantry that FUSM founded in 1971 along with a group of neighboring churches, is committed to helping provide healthy food to low-income residents of Milwaukee in a compassionate and supportive environment.

Repairers of the Breach is Greater Milwaukee’s only daytime refuge and resource center for homeless adults open 6 days per week. They believe that offering life-saving, life-sustaining, and life-restoring programs is key to self-reliability.

Guest House of Milwaukee provides shelter, housing, education, and services to Milwaukee’s homeless who seek to transform their lives with dignity and purpose.

Make your contribution when we pass the plate, or contribute using the form at this link.


Receptions after each service:  Join us in the Leenhouts Common Room for coffee, treats, friendly conversation and more candlelight after each service.


We offer religious education for children of all ages at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays. To learn more, please see our Religious Education Web Pages and sign up to receive our RE Weekly Update.
