Stewardship Campaign

At First Pres, we invite you to share in supporting the ministries of the church for our congregation, community, and the world. We hold our annual stewardship pledge drive in November so we can effectively plan our ministries and related budget. For 2021, we secured 75% of our annual giving target with faithful pledge commitments from members and regular attenders.

Called to Dream

Our 2021 campaign named that God is calling all of us to dream about First Pres’ call in the next chapter of our life together. Who is God calling us to love? Where is God calling us to serve? How can we be even more faithful for such a time as this?

Throughout the 2021 giving season, we encourage you to dream with us. But rememberdreaming requires planning, and plans require funding.

Your pledges and contributions to First Pres make our mission statement real, enabling us to love, serve, and pursue God’s restoring justice. Gifts to our General Fund support our hardworking staff and the diverse, life-giving ministries of the church.

If you already give regularly to the church—including via electronic funds transfer (ACH) or PayPal automatic payments—would you commit to an annual pledge? If you are not a regular giver, would you consider making a commitment this year?
