Shared Collection 

Each month, our congregation shares half the collection with an organization doing good work in the world or our local community. Members nominate and then vote on nine recipients, our children and youth select one, our Social Justice Associates select one, and one is left to the discretion of the minister(s) - often allocated to unforeseen emergent needs, such as natural disasters or humanitarian relief. 

From April 2021 through March 2022, the following organizations have been chosen by our congregation. 

CASA of New Hampshire, Joan K. Lovering Health Center, the South Church Immigrant Support Fund, Seacoast Family Promise, Black Lives Matter Seacoast, GATHER, Granite State Organizing Project, Crossroads House, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, the Black Heritage Trail of NH and Womenaid of Greater Portsmouth.
