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.


In 1959, a group of Denver-area churches (including First Plymouth) collectively recognized a need for affordable housing for their aging church members struggling to live well on a limited income. After more than sixty years, Kentucky Circle Village continues to offer affordable and attractive housing for seniors in a neighborhood setting that nurtures fellowship and cooperative activities. This mission could not be more prescient than right now. While a 2017 renovation and recapitalization project repositioned the organization to more effectively care for the property through  its regular budget (comprised solely of rent income), fundraising supports the many ways the organization can enhance the quality of life of residents. Donations received from Share the Plate will fund social and educational events for residents, one-time services such as housekeeping following a hospital stay, in-home disability accommodations, and increased accessibility to the KCV grounds. Thank you for your generous and ongoing commitment to Kentucky Circle! For more information, please contact executive director, Julie Hoebel.

Contribute to Share-the-Plate via text to give, ACH or Credit Card or by check made out to First Plymouth Church with “STP” noted on the memo line and mailed to the church.
