On June 26, 2016, we had our annual LGBT Pride Sunday worship service. The theme was “Coming Home,” and the service featured special music, readings, testimonies, and prayers. In particular, we remembered the 49 victims of the shooting at Pulse in Orlando.
On December 11, 2015, members and friends of First United Church of Tampa held a candlelight vigil to acknowledge the beginning of the Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath Weekend and to raise the public’s awareness of the epidemic of gun violence in our society.
Food, shoes, blankets, toys, clothes, and diapers were provided to the farmworkers at the Family Christmas Party on December 19, 2015, at St. Clement Catholic Church in Plant City. Members and friends of our church were there to share in the generosity and celebration.
