First Presbyterian Church is a not-for-profit corporation, completely dependent on the gifts of members and supporters. Our ministry is sustained by weekly voluntary offerings received in our worship services. There are no dues required of members, no payments demanded for attending worship or participating in church activities.
The church presents its financial needs once per year, in January, requesting pledges or estimates of giving for the next calendar year. Pledges are not a debt or legal obligation; they are a promise before the Lord to give a certain amount or percentage of income as He may bless you.
Offering envelopes are provided every year for each church family in order to guarantee confidentiality and the proper accounting for each contribution. Members are strongly encouraged to utilize these envelopes (and, especially, to complete the front portion) whenever they make donations to First Church.
The church’s books are completely open to all interested members. Each spring at the annual meeting, a full accounting is given of how each dollar is used, listing salaries, utility expenses, missions giving and program expenses.
If you wish to make a pledge to First Presbyterian Church, or have any questions about the church’s budget, financial procedures or your own giving receipts, please contact our Church Accountant David Reynolds (239-992-3233 x251 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
