Share-the-Plate

First Plymouth Congregational Church has an active Outreach Ministry reaching out to the greater community and educating the congregation in ways to help others. The Outreach Ministry receives nominations for the “Share-the-Plate” program from parishioners and the wider community. Each Sunday the worship service hosts a “Moment for Mission” segment where a representative of the recipient organization speaks to the needs and successes of their organization. 80% of the funds collected during the service for “Share-the-Plate” flow through the church to the organization. The remaining 20% is retained in the Outreach Ministry fund for future educational programs and other outreach purposes.

The Share-the-Plate recipient for June 2017 is:

The Action Center’s mission is to provide an immediate response to basic human needs and promote pathways to self-sufficiency for Jefferson County residents and the homeless.

Their goal is to give clients a continuum of services to meet their current needs and the means to become self-sufficient. It is through the following programs that The Action Center gives help, provides hope, and builds dignity while breaking the cycle of poverty:

  • Intervention and Prevention services to address basic human needs
  • Self-Sufficiency Pathways Program to address long-term needs
  • Build Community Partnerships to address barrier issues related to moving toward self-sufficiency such as education, public benefits, mental health, and healthcare.
