Want to learn a little more about what it means to give?  Here is the FAQs, or perhaps the NAQs (never asked questions!) about Pledging.  The FAQs of Pledging

Annual Pledge – Want to make a pledge to First Church to support our continued commitment or increase your pledge?  Just fill out a pledge card available in the Parlor and drop in the collection plate

Electronic giving – We now offer direct deposit for your annual pledge.  You can do a once a month draft on the 1st or 15th, or twice monthly.  Just see Shari Austin at Coffee hour for the enrollment form.  Don’t worry about writing checks each week or forgetting your envelopes! Still want something to drop in the plate each week?  If you have set up electronic payments, you can download and print these plate slips that you can drop in the plate to indicate that you have sent in your contribution electronically. Plate slips for electronic giving

Stop and Shop gift card program – our church participates in the Stop and Shop scrip gift card program.  Quite simply, you can purchase Stop and Shop gift cards at face value through the church and the church receives from Stop and Shop a 5% discount.  That means, just by doing your normal shopping or fueling your car, you can help contribute to our church.  The gift cards can be used to purchase not only groceries at Stop and Shop, but also other gift cards they offer for sale and at the gas pumps.  To order cards, just complete the Order form and drop in the plate or send to Deanna Pico.  Cards are ordered on Monday and delivered the following Sunday.  Download the order form or pick up printed forms in the parlor at church.  Stop and Shop gift card order form

Great Lakes Scrip Gift Card Program:  Twice a year, we offer gift cards for purchase through the Great Lakes Scrip program.  You purchase gift cards at face value and a portion of the proceeds go directly to the church as a fundraiser. We will be doing another order soon, so check it out!
