Once a month, the entire offertory plate collection is donated to a charity nominated by a member of First Parish. September’s recipient is YouthBuild, a national and international organization whose mission is to help under-educated, under-employed, and poor youth, aged 16-24 years, develop the tools to be productive citizens in their communities.
YouthBuild helps to, “unleash the positive energy of low-income young people to rebuild their communities and their lives, breaking the cycle of poverty with a commitment to work, education, family, and community.” Learn more about this organization at www.youthbuild.org.
Donations on Sunday, September 18th, will be gratefully received and generously donated to this organization. Two young participants in the YouthBuild program in Belmont will be joining us. Please bring a check made payable to First Parish Church, Lexington.
