Our Stewardship Prayer

Generous and loving God,

You call us to be disciples of your Son Jesus Christ and good stewards of all your many gifts to us personally and as a congregation. Open our minds and hearts to a greater awareness and deeper appreciation of your countless blessings. Transform us through the power of your Spirit to nurture a generosity of heart marked by faith-filled prayer, service to our neighbors, and a growing commitment to sharing our time, talent and treasure. Strengthen us as your church as you teach us to be faithful stewards of your gifts.

We pray this through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Matthew 6:21

Stewardship is about sharing our time, talent, treasure, and testimony. There are many ways to share these gifts with First Congregational Church.

Like many churches, the First Congregational church asks its members and friends to support the church with ongoing contributions and an annual Faith Commitment. Our Faith Commitment process takes place in the Fall and culminates in Faith Commitment Sunday in October. New members and those who did not make a Faith Commitment in October can make a Faith Commitment at any time during the year.

Establishing a Faith Commitment and making one time gifts help the church determine a realistic financial budget. However, the main purpose of making a Faith Commitment and other contributions is the spiritual benefit it brings to the giver. By making contributions to the Church, we create a strong bond between ourselves and the Church, and this, in turn, contributes to our spiritual development.

To Make a Faith Commitment

Print the Faith Commitment Card and mail it to the church or put it in the offering plate. You may also send an e-mail with your Faith Commitment to the Financial Secretary. All Faith Commitments and contributions are handled in a confidential manner

Giving to the Church is easily done using the Traditional or Electronic giving process. If you wish to contribute stock or similar assets or for other specific questions about making contributions to FCC, please contact the Financial Secretary or the Church Office.

All contributions are fully tax deductible and you will receive a statement summarizing your giving.

Your Faith Commitment can Impact People's Lives. Please review our brochure.
