Stewardship

"Where your treasure is, your heart will be also."  Matthew 6:21

 

Often stewardship is mistaken as synonymous with fundraising in the church.  Church stewardship is so much more than that.  It encompasses the holistic care for the church as an organization, the people who are part of the church community, and the missions that reach beyond the walls of the physical buildings.

 

Traditionally our church runs a stewardship program in the fall culminating in a stewardship Sunday sometime in November.  Pledges are made to the Annual Operating Fund which funds the Annual Budget. 


Contributions may be made weekly during the service or by mailing a check OR using your bank's bill pay:

March Mission:  One Great Hour of Sharing

This year’s theme for One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) is “Let Love Flow”.  The gifts you give to OGHS are leveraged with those of others across the United Church of Christ bringing a greater impact to the work being done with local and global partners.  Your support enables a response to a variety of global and local concerns by addressing advocacy, sustainable development, refugee and asylum issues, migration, and disasters, and assisting those most in need and vulnerable among us. 


When you share your gifts, you “Let Love Flow” and your generosity ensures that, even in the midst of uncertainty, the transforming power of God’s love continues to change lives here and around the world, as together we build a just world for all. 


Donations may be made during the entire month of March.  Check donations may be made out to the First Congregational UCC with “OGHS Fund” in the memo line.  You may also donate online by visiting our website, clicking on the Giving/Support tab, and you will find the OGHS Fund information and the donation link under the Tithes & Offerings section.
