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.

NOVEMBER SHARE-THE-PLATE

Share-the-Plate this November is
Denver Police Brotherhood Youth Boxing Program

The Outreach Ministry has chosen the Denver Police Brotherhood Youth Boxing Program as the November Share-the-Plate recipient. This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization exists solely on funding from individuals, corporations and agencies to provide a place for Denver inner-city youth to learn teamwork, discipline, camaraderie; and to forge lifelong friendships through its mission statement of “Pride, Honor, Discipline, and Self Respect — in themselves as well as in the community.”
