First Church believes strongly in an open and inclusive church that extends an unqualified welcome. We are a wonderful array of God’s children, representing many ethnicities and cultures, sexual orientations, and economic and social backgrounds; a collection only God could assemble. We invite you to join us as together we respond to the call of God in our lives.
First Church is at work within the church community and beyond its walls – both locally and globally – all year-round. It is part of our responsibility as church members and as stewards of God’s grace to provide financial support to make such ministries possible. We give as a measure of our gratitude and as a sign of our discipleship, so we encourage prayerful generosity and thoughtful planning of gifts.
Please consider giving generously.
Stewardship pledges are the single most important source of support for the First Presbyterian Church budget, and gifts of every size are of value and importance. An annual stewardship campaign presents opportunities for pledges early in each calendar year but can also made at other times of the year.
For questions, please contact the business office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may make payments toward your pledge or non-pledged gifts to the church by using offering envelopes in the pew racks or simply by noting “2020 Stewardship” in the memo line of your check. Whether you make a financial gift when the plate is passed or not, we encourage you to use The Offering in worship as a time for reflection and personal prayer about the various ways you offer yourself as a steward in God’s service.
You may give online here. Simply follow the directions on the giving page so that your gift can be credited accurately.
Please ensure that your gift includes a notation—in the memo line or by accompanying note—about its intended use and send your check to:
First Presbyterian Church in the City of New York
12 W. 12th Street
New York, NY 10011

Consider other Offerings and Special Appeals
From time to time, First Presbyterian Church conducts appeals for special offerings for its own mission, and that of the PC(USA). While Annual Giving and Pledging should be the foundation of one’s giving, we encourage you to consider these additional appeals for the needs of the church and world as you are able and inspired to give.
