Giving to First Church
This church is a community of ourselves.
Its energy and resources are our energy and resources.
Its wealth is what we share.
When we contribute to the life of this community,
we affirm our lives within it, and enable its participation in the larger world.
—Mary Allen Walden
Generosity is a spiritual practice in all the world’s major faith traditions. At First Church, we hope to guide you in finding volunteer opportunities that will nourish you spiritually. We also hope your commitment to our mission will extend to financial support.
As a congregation, most of our budget comes from us: from people who make and pay an annual pledge.
Money doesn't make a congregation great, but it is impossible to thrive without it. First Church's operating budget supports:
Our full-time professional minister
Our professional Office & Facilities Administrator, Director of Religious Education, and Acting Music Director, and paid Nursery Care Provider
Cleaning services, heating oil, and other utilities
Much-needed repairs and maintenance of our historic building
Our annual contribution to our Unitarian Universalist Association's Annual Program Fund
So many other things!
