First Sunday Donations
First Sunday Plate
As a way of partnering with others, First Unitarian Church of Dallas gives away its total first-Sunday-of-the-month collection plate as a donation to another non-profit organization that does important work in the world reflecting the core values of our community.
First Sunday recipients are nominated by members of First Church, many of whom are directly involved with the organizations they recommend. The nomination form is available HERE. Application deadlines are April 1 (for July-December collections) and October 1 (for January-June collections).
Nominations received by the church are reviewed, and recipients are selected, by the First Sunday Committee. Current First Sunday Committee members are as follows: Andrea Chaney (Chair & Liaison Officer), Jane Ramberg, Michael Heinlen, Steven Dennis, Clinton Swingle, Flannery Currin and Patty Jantho. Committee guidelines are posted HERE. Questions, comments, and nomination forms can be sent to email@example.com.
