Stewardship Spring Renewal

A Prayer for Renewal

Jesus, I am weary.  I spend each day busy, but feel I accomplish little.  Help me to set healthy boundaries and prioritize by your Holy Spirit.  I have my to do list, but what do you have for me today?  Help me not to miss your divine appointments.  Set my focus on things above and keep my eyes on you.  Reveal to me what I should hold on to, and what I need to let go.  Empower and equip me for the work you have for me.  Give me the lasting strength of abiding in you.  Renew my body and spirit, Lord and make me whole.  Amen

Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.  Isaiah 40:31 (NASB)

Church Leader Messages

The Board of Assessors is grateful that First Parish Church has a meaningful place in your life.  Whether you give a one-time gift or recurring donations, we want to thank you for your generosity, and for being a faithful member or friend of our Church.  

Donating to First Parish Church not only helps us to support our Pastors, our worship service, and our buildings, but, more importantly, these donations allow us to support our community and beyond, including organizations like the York Food Pantry, York Community Service Association, Fair Tide, Maine Seacoast Mission, Common Hope, Daisy’s Children Feeding Program, Maine School of Ministry, UCC Child Sponsorship, and the Boston Project Ministries. All of this is only possible through the kind donations of people like you! 

In addition, as Chair of Assessors, I am pleased to report that despite the Covid 19, First Parish Church ended the year 2020 with a balanced budget. This was in part because of the help from the Payroll Protection Program.  However, primarily it is due to the kind donations received from members and friends of First Parish Church and we want to express our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for your support during the unusual and challenging circumstances of 2020.      

You are a valued member and friend of this Church, and we wanted you to know the many ways that your financial support is making a difference.  First Parish Church is here for you.  If we can be of help to you or your family, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Jeffrey McConnell, Chair
Board of Assessors
