Share the Plate

The church’s Share the Plate program is a way to contribute money and stay connected to a variety of community organizations.

Each month, a different organization is selected as a recipient, and we share all gifts 50/50 with the organization, unless otherwise designated. We are our committed to living our faith as a generous and connected community.

We are a part of an interconnected web of existence, and we believe in a world community that relies on one another for an engaged love that creates change and justice for all. The emphasis on living our faith and generosity is generally well received by visitors and long-time members, adding meaning and activism to all of our lives.
