Giving to First Church

title - Rooted in Love

“They say that in heaven, love comes first. We’ll make heaven a place on Earth.” – Belinda Carlisle

This song from the ’80s is one of my mantras and something that I aspire to. One of the best ways that love comes to First Church is by making your annual financial pledge. We Earthlings pledging together can do many wonderful things and achieve heavenly results.  I know this song is about romantic, relational love but reflect on how you can make a heavenly difference to the church we love.

Stewardship via your pledge provides a steady financial stream that keeps First Church running smoothly. I love how our church is a place where I can work together with friends to address challenging issues such as: Immigration, Anti-Racism, LGBTQ+ Rights, Homelessness and Gun Violence.

I make my pledge every year because I love my church. I know that faithful giving rooted in love, shows my commitment to the life, mission and work of the church. With all the uncertainty, grief and injustice in the world, it’s important to have a Church home to comfort, challenge and guide me.

For Fiscal Year 2022, the best way to pledge is through our confidential 2022 Pledge Form. You can also send your pledge information directly to Lucille Dickinson, our Treasurer, at

While you’re making your pledge, you can thank me for planting that song in your head. And I thank you for your financial support.
