You Make the Difference!
You make the difference in what First Parish is today and what it can be tomorrow. Maybe you make the difference by your volunteer work or by singing your heart out during our Sunday service. Maybe you make the difference by baking for coffee hour or through a financial contribution. First Parish would not be the force for good it is without you.
At a time of deep divisions across the nation, our collective belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person is touching our community beyond Church Green. Our willingness to stand up for justice, equity and compassion in human relations is setting an example for others. We are an expanding force because our membership has grown to 100-plus and continues to grow, because attendance at our Sunday service and school is strong, and because our small group ministries are thriving. None of this would be possible without your active engagement.
Think of First Parish as a puzzle and yourself as one of the inter-locking pieces. First Parish would be incomplete without you. You make the difference in whether First Parish continues to have inspiring Sunday services, provides meaningful religious education, and leads the greater community in a positive direction.
Your pledge of support in whatever amount is right for you is gratefully accepted and greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions, please contact the church office by phone at 508.822.2107 or by email at email@example.com.
3 Years to 3% Challenge
Last year the Board of Trustees set an ambitious goal of all of our members giving 3% of our income to First Parish Church within 3 years! That means that in 2017, to continue our challenge, each member will be asked to bring our pledge up to 2% of our income. If we do that we will be well on our way toward our goal of 3% by 2018!
Of course, how much to give financially to First Parish is a very personal decision. But if all of our members meet this challenge, we will be able to responsibly meet the expenses of our ministry, care for our historic building, and continue to reach out in meaningful ways to the community.
Thank you for considering this generous commitment!
To make your pledge for 2018, please complete and return a paper pledge form or fill out the Online Pledge Form below.
