First Church Fundraiser


We are in a time like no other in our lifetime.  As we look forward to a new normal, we realize we need to address the ongoing financial needs of the Church. The Finance Committee has been carefully reviewing the budget, cutting, and making adjustments. We also will need to continue fundraising.
Our biggest fundraising event, the Art Show and Auction, will not be possible this year. It depends heavily on the donations from local businesses: they have been struggling with closures and slow recovery, and we do not feel right asking them for gifts this year.

Instead, we are asking for gifts, grants, and donations from you to help compensate for the impossibility of a formal event.
We are asking that you consider giving a donation equivalent to what you would have spent at the auction.

Click the link above and read our Fundraiser letter.You will see there are several raffle items offered, including a quilt like the one pictured above, made by Amy Pigeon to your own color choices plus many more. Also, later added as a fun prize that you can win: two hour handyman sessions by Malcolm Green.

We look forward to a time when we can come together and socialize. Until then we hope you will support this fundraiser.
