First Things First is the endowment program of First Presbyterian Church. Its purpose is to strengthen and expand the ministries and programs of the church. It is an effective way for our members to express their Christian faith and to witness their love for Christ’s church in an abiding way. (Download the 2012 FPC Endowment Annual Report)
Making a Difference by Supporting First Things First
God has generously given us everything life has to offer; we choose to give in response to his rich blessings. Giving to First Presbyterian Church, in whatever form, is an act of faith whereby we put into action our spiritual inclinations and demonstrate our spiritual values, both now and to future generations. Giving puts into action our spiritual inclinations. Supporting the church’s endowment is a tangible affirmation of faith in Jesus Christ; it is a special opportunity for us to express trust in our Lord that he will use our gifts-gifts that are thoughtfully and faithfully given-to expand his kingdom. First Presbyterian Church is blessed with a rich heritage of spiritual experiences and Christian service to the community, both local and worldwide.
Income from First Things First enables the church to creatively take advantage of mission and outreach opportunities as they arise. We are also blessed to have remarkable physical facilities that enrich our worship experience.
The ongoing capital needs of our facilities can strain our annual budget and thereby restrict our mission activities. Income from First Things First can enable us to take care of our capital needs in a planned and orderly way. In the end, accomplishing our capital/building support goal helps us to accomplish our missions goal, because by endowing the ongoing financial support needed to maintain our facilities, we free up funding to expand God’s kingdom through mission/outreach activities.
