Second-Sunday Plate Collections

On the second Sunday of each month, we take up a special collection in worship to benefit a cause outside of our church. Cash or checks may be placed in the collection baskets to contribute to the organization chosen for that month. Recipient organizations are published in the church newsletter and in the Orders of Service on second Sunday mornings.

"We are a generous congregation! I am thrilled to report that we collected $15,793.70 from our Second-Sunday Plate Collections and designated checks in 2017. We made a real difference to nine local organizations as well as a UN project (Adopt a Future), the UUA Disaster Relief Fund, and the Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network. We prioritize organizations that have a relatively small budget we can impact and organizations whose focus ties into planned worship topics and/or denominational study issues."
