Greater Birmingham Ministries is celebrating 50 years of service to the people of Greater Birmingham. Their ministry relieves human suffering with food, clothing, utility assistance, medicine and rent. GBM has a commitment to living out their purpose for peace and justice by actively participating in community organized work to address issues that ensure just and fairness are used in meeting the needs of our most susceptible neighbors.
UUCB is a Sponsoring Congregation of Greater Birmingham Ministries, please give generously as the ministry is in great need at this time of the year.
Every month, a portion of the loose plate offering collected each Sunday will be given to the organization determined by the Justice Committee.
Please make your checks payable to UUCB and a note in the memo line stating Share the Plate. We will collect donations of cash, check and Venmo (@uucbham) each week of the month and then send the donations in one check. This helps the organization by eliminating the need to send a thank you note to each donor. Many of the organizations we support have very limited staff and removing extra work for them is another gift we can offer.
Thank you for your generosity!
(If you want to pay your pledge and support the Share the Plate recipient in one check, note the separate amounts for each in the memo line)
