Stewardship

“Rooted in Love, Built on Love” -Ephesians 3:17

Thank you for considering your pledge for First Congregational Church in Winchester. We haven’t been able to worship in person yet we continue to explore new ways to worship “together.” 2020 has demonstrated that our church is not the building itself but the connections that we have, in Christ, “rooted in love, built on love.” In the past we’ve always been able to discuss the specifics of our church’s finances in-person, including our budget and expectations for the coming year. This year, the Financial Resources Ministry has collected helpful information in a way we hope is accessible, including a new Stewardship video, FAQs, and more information on pledging. 2021 will be a challenge as our ministries continue to adapt, and the financial support by the congregation is a critical part of their success. We know there will be questions, so please do not hesitate to reach out to Tom Roche,   Jennifer Wilson, or Taylor Tresselt. Thank you for your generosity and know that it is our congregation’s commitment to Christ’s love that will sustain us and ensure the vitality of our works in the world.
