Ministry on the margins
Mike and Kathy Schneider
Ministry on the Margins is an ecumenical organization which reaches out and serves the marginal people in our community —the homeless, those in transition and the working poor. The Ministry provides coffee house times, meetings for cooperative agencies and a food pantry.
Mike and Kathy Schneider are on the leadership team and were involved with Sr. Kathleen Atkinson since it's conception. They are ordinary people who through this ministry have learned about the poor and broken in the Bismarck area and have been richly blessed because of their service.

This I believe; This I do
Ken Grigsby and Elicia Faul
As UUs, we hold a belief in 7 Principles and the sentiment that what we do while here on Earth matters. In this popular service format, members Ken and Elicia will share their spiritual journey and how they live our UU principles.

Come join us for a Winter Solstice service as we, in the words of Joyce Rupp, “seek solace in the empty places of winter’s passage.” When we rest within the darkness, we often find that the light and hope we are searching for is inside our own hearts.
Shay MacKay is finishing her 2nd year at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, CA, working towards ordination as a UU minister. She is a musician and composer who enjoys exploring how music can both heal and inspire us to action within our world.
