Please consider the following:
A commitment in excess of $1800 helps us reduce our
Stewardship: the conducting, supervising, or managing of something; especially the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care.
The annual Stewardship Campaign is the financial foundation for the operation of First Parish Church. Your contribution supports our clergy, our worship services, our church school, our adult education programs and social events - everything that makes us a community. It supports all the ingredients that go into making this church a place for learning, for service, for worship...a place for solace and celebration. Your annual giving supports our church as a place that matters to us, to Weston, and to other Boston neighborhoods and even to communities throughout the world.
We must pay for our programs this year as we do every year. Operating expenses never go away. They dont wait for the markets to recover or oil prices to drop. The 2000 Capital Campaign resulted in many improvements to the churchs physical plant. We need to continue to fully fund our budget to ensure the churchs physical plant and equipment that house our many programs are maintained and remain in excellent condition.
This years campaign will maintain the theme Taking Steps Toward Making A Difference, because it does, in so many ways, to so many people. Please take a moment, now, or in the near future, to consider ways in which First Parish matters to you and your loved ones. Take a moment to consider what else in your life compares to First Parish Church.
Have you made new friends, found a quiet sanctuary in your busy life, discovered answers or surfaced new questions? Have you found a community of support, joy or comfort? What ties you to First Parish? Worship, church school, the Parish Post, pastoral visits, committee work, or maybe the sharing of sorrows and celebrations?
As much as First Parish matters to us, it also matters to many others.
These connections help ensure that First Parish will be known by generations to come. Not just as historical narration and artifacts, but as a vibrant living place that continues to shape a better works in Weston and beyond.
First Parish Matters because
And you matter to First Parish
