Dear First Pres Family,

Our theme for the coming year is “A Future with Faith.” This exciting vision is brought to life when we put God first in our hearts, first in our homes and first in our communities. One way we as Christians put God first is illustrated in how we spend our time, talent and treasure. Your generous financial support in 2020 is essential to carry out our robust and exciting year of worship, education, music, mission and fellowship at First Pres.

As you contemplate how you will live “A Future with Faith,” please pray about your commitment to stewardship.  We urge you to complete the enclosed 2020 Operating Fund Commitment Form and return to the church by November 3rd which is Pledge Commitment Sunday. On the form, you may request additional information about various giving options. With a mind toward convenience, we invite you to take advantage of electronic giving and set up regular (weekly, monthly or quarterly) donations via bank transfer or credit card. And beginning in 2020, the per capita expense of $36.00, which First Pres pays for each member in support of the Presbyterian Church (USA) through its sustaining local, regional and national ministries, will be detailed on your quarterly statement.

Thank you in advance for your financial stewardship that enables the mission and ministry of First Pres to flourish and lead our members and guests to “A Future with Faith!” 

In Christ, 

Your Stewardship Committee
