Donating Our Weekly Plate Collection
Members and friends sustain the operating expenses of the church with their pledges, enabling us to give away the Sunday collection. Please write Share the Plate on the memo line if you contribute by check. You can also contribute by credit card in the bookstore. Thank you!
Interfaith Ministries’ Meals on Wheels program receives 25% of the plate every Sunday. Each of the 2021 recipients receive 75% of the plate for the designated month.
