An Open and Affirming Congregation
We are grateful for the generosity of the people of First Parish Church. We hope you will join us in participating in FPC through your presence and your gifts of service and financial support.
A church’s budget reflects its mission. The three primary sections to a church budget are personnel, property, and benevolence. The largest category is personnel because we are in the people business. Through our staff we make possible the ministries of worship, education, fellowship and outreach. Through good stewardship of our buildings, we not only support the activities of the congregation itself, we also provide space for other groups – Church of the Good Samaritan (an Anglican group), an Eastern Orthodox group, a Jewish study group, AA groups, Boy Scouts, Jung Society, a Spiritual Directors group, etc.
We also give financial assistance to others. We support the ministries of our denomination, the United Church of Christ, in Maine and beyond. We also provide assistance to various local agencies, through our budget and special offerings. We have a particular ministry, Jane’s Team, (named for a church member who used to do this work) which provides temporary assistance to those who come to our door seeking help. We try to “fill in the gaps,” where other agencies are not able to assist.
Your gifts to FPC help to make all these ministries possible. To pledge or set up electronic giving, please contact the office at 729-7331.
