Community Action Committee
Reaching out to the Flagstaff area community, this committee solicits proposals from Beacon members to support local non-profit groups and activities. Members may complete and send a nomination form to the Beacon office. Undesignated contributions to each month’s first four Sunday service offerings above $350 (which goes to Beacon’s operational budget) will be presented to the non-profit chosen by the Social Action Team, based on proposals submitted by the congregation.
Share the Plate
When in-person services ceased because of the pandemic, Share the Plate became a non-viable way to give money to non-profit service agencies in Flagstaff. The Board and Finance committee saw the potential for this to resume now that we are meeting in the sanctuary. The Committee composed of Susan Patrick, Joanne Parkes, and Lynda L. Dorweiler will accept nominations from congregants for 501c3 organizations to receive our donations. In the past years, (2016-2019), we have given over $3000 per year to several deserving agencies. It is our hope that the congregation can continue with helping these organizations reach their goals.
