Giving

Of all the possible investments we might choose to support, few are as vitally important as the church. First Church plays a unique and irreplaceable role in our lives and in our community. It is a place of beauty and inspiration, of caring and fellowship, of guidance and comfort for people in all walks and all stages of life. It is a solid ground amid the shifting cultural sands of our times. It is a treasure given into our hands by generations that have come before us and a trust for us to carefully manage for the sake of generations to come.

For those who appreciate being able to make their financial gift online securely, click on DONATE NOW. Gifts are automatically processed from your checking, savings, debit, or credit card account on one or more dates each month.  For those choosing online giving, you will have the security of knowing that the gift you offer to God through First Church comes first and is deducted regularly.
