Through this exciting and generous ministry, we give away our Sunday morning offering once a month to select non-profit groups and a variety of denominational causes. We’re not expecting any recognition or reward. It’s just one way to acknowledge our gratitude and give to our community.

The total given through UUCA’s Give Away the Plate ministry as of May 5, 2014 is  $363,972.10 and is shared between 187 non-profit groups. We are indeed a grateful and generous congregation. Please look for the Give Away the Plate table in the Social Hall before and after Sunday services where the recipient of that morning’s plate will have a chance to meet, greet and educate UUCA folks.  Thank you for supporting this important ministry.

To submit a Give Away The Plate nominee, please complete and submit the form here.  For questions, please send an email to the team.
