Financial Gifts

Monetary donations support our ministry. Help us make a difference, and give.

Financial Gifts Matter

Obviously we couldn’t do all we do without the financial gifts of our congregation. We need money to maintain our building and grounds, pay our staff, and support our on-going mission projects. The budget provides the means by which we carry out the mission and ministry for which we have been called. God calls us to Live Generously – to love, to be kind, to care for others “as we care for ourselves,” and to reach up and out beyond our own lives. The purpose of this narrative summary is to celebrate what God has done and share the vision God has given for this year. We want to continue our mission in the areas of Worship, Learning, Serving and Community.

When it comes to finances at FPC-SSP, our goal is to be good stewards and give generously, while setting some funds aside for hard times when our mission projects need our help the most. 

All donations to the church are tax deductible unless items are purchased for personal use (study guides, camp registrations, bake sale items, Christmas wreaths, etc.). It is up to you and your accountant to determine the tax-deductible portion of your contributions.

All donors receive year-end giving statements for tax purposes. Donors are asked to open and check their year-end statements carefully so that any corrections can be made before the books are closed around the second week of January.

Above all, we give glory to God for all his many blessings. We are grateful for your commitment to the life of First Presbyterian Church. There is no gift too great or too small. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
