Giving to the Church & Social Distancing

Giving to the Church & Social Distancing

Good Afternoon First Parish Church Family,

During this unprecedented time, we cannot physically gather together with our families and friends. We cannot gather for worship or coffee hour. We miss one another dearly and we look forward to that time when we can worship and celebrate together!

In the meantime, many of you have asked how you can give and support the church. If you are able, there are three ways that you can send your pledges and offerings:

  • First, you can mail checks to the church: 12 Beach Street, Saco ME 04072. Please know that they may not get processed right away, since our counters are also practicing physical distancing.
  • Second, there is an offering function on the church website. You can browse to and you can then fill out the secure form to make your donation or offering.
  • Third, you can sign up for e-giving through your bank. There is a simple form that you complete, and your offering or pledge will be made electronically directly from your bank. The e-giving form can be found on, or you can contact the church office and a form will be sent to you.

We appreciate all of your support during this unusual and difficult time. We know that many people in our community are struggling financially. If you are unable to pay your pledge at this time, please know that we understand. Please do not be embarrassed by your circumstances. You are not alone.

If you are experiencing financial difficulties and could use some help or support from your church family, please let us know. We have the Discretionary Fund available to offer assistance, and all disbursements are confidential. Please call. That is what families do, we help one another.

We will get through this. May God bless you all.

Grace and Peace,


Congregational Church
