Stewardship at First Church and Parish Dedham
A steward is someone who takes care of a property or organization. We consider every member and friend of First Church a steward because it takes all of us to keep our history of love and service alive. We care for First Church in many ways.
We live our values by doing everything from attending worship, singing in the choir, teaching in the UU Exploration Program, serving on committees, joining in activities and events, connecting with friends, helping each other when we are in need, engaging in our wider community for civic justice and pledging to support the church.
The reason we ask for your financial pledge every Spring is so that we may plan our budget for the next fiscal year. We only ask that everyone contibute what they can afford to comfortably. A pledge is not a binding contract; it is a promise that represents a hope. While the office will remind you of your pledge, we understand that things change.
This year our goal is $104,000 in pledged income to support our Church and Parish. We did not quite reach that goal - but we came close!
If you do not know much about us, or are wondering what other people think about First Church and why they donate to our stewardship campaign, watch the 2022 stewardship testemonials from some of the Parish Committee members below.
Finally, this year we make it easier than ever to give by offering an online link to giving.
You can always find the "Make A Donation" by using the link on our home page.
Thank you for your generosity.
If you have any questions or need a paper pledge card contact the church office.
