Ways to Donate
During our worship service we receive tithes and offerings to support the mission and vision of First Parish. We are incredibly grateful to those who give regularly and generously. Please ask our Ushers to give you an envelope when you arrive. If you choose to join virtually, here’s the link to donate to our collection plate online. In the comments, kindly put “Collection Plate”.
Annual Pledge (Monthly Giving)
The annual pledge drive is the time when members and friends of First Parish are asked for a financial commitment to support the church during the next fiscal year that starts July 1st. If you would like to pledge click here. Feel free to visit our FAQ page. Please be in touch with our Treasurer, Tom Rich to schedule monthly direct deposits. For questions, please contact the administrator.
The Campaign to Reopen and Reach Out not only begins the healthy and safe reopening of our 174 year old church building, it also re-energizes and refocuses us on our mission: to grow and become the diverse, multi-cultural, Beloved Community that we aspire to be. Please see our Brochure for more info. To donate please use this link.

Minister’s Discretionary Fund
The First Parish Minister’s Discretionary Fund is for purposes of supporting the ministry of the congregation; for example, to provide relief funds for members as well as non-members in need of emergency assistance, to provide for special recognition for services to the congregation, and to provide funds for other pastoral or ministerial needs that may lie outside the congregation’s budget. Typically this is done during the month of December around the Holidays, especially during our Christmas Eve Service. However, if you feel drawn to this cause, donations are always welcomed.
