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

~ This Month’s Share the Plate Partner ~

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.

For the months of July, August, and September, the committee has chosen Flagstaff Family Food Center to receive our donation.   
Flagstaff Family Food Center served over 63,000 daily meals last year at their location on N. Second Street. They also provide many other services: Backdoor lunch program, Children’s literacy, Food Rescue Program, Food for Farms, Food Box Program, Homebound Senior Deliveries, and Mobile Pantries. Sue Stroebel has continued to maintain a volunteer service to help distribute food at their Second Street location.  
Undesignated contributions in each month’s plate offerings over $250 will be presented to the designated agency. Thank you for your generosity and helping to maintain Beacon’s service to the community.
