Community Plate

Members of the Marvelous Math Club here at UUCA describing their wonderful program.

Each month our congregation provides support for a community partner who we believe shares our values. We encourage our congregants to learn more about these organizations and actively volunteer in the work they do. On the first Sunday of each month, our offering is dedicated to that month’s partner. as well as all checks identified as “Community Plate” during the entire month.  The Community Plate Committee of our Earth & Social Justice Ministry team recommends the agencies or projects.
