Open palms surrounded by words including Give, Share, Provide, and Offer

Every Sunday during the worship service you are invited to contribute to the Share The Plate. The Share the Plate program is one of the ways that UUs live their values. UUCT shares the money collected in the offering with a partner organization that:

  • Has been nominated by a UUCT member or supporting friend, preferably who has a connection to the organization through volunteering or financial support,
  • Serves the local Big Bend Area,
  • Focuses on: Food Justice, Housing Justice,  Racial Justice, or Environmental Justice,
  • Has tax exempt non-profit status, 501(c) 3.

The UUCT member or supporting friend submitting nominating the organization agrees to champion their nominee by writing a brief statement to be shared via the Meridian newsletter and church social media, and making a short presentation (2-4 minutes) during the worship service on the appropriate Sunday(s). Other optional ways of being a champion include inviting a representative from the organization to make a presentation and recruiting new volunteers for the organization.
