18. Will I be expected to give an offering? It's up to you...

You may contribute to the morning offering as much or as little as you wish. If this will be your first visit, please be our guest, but we will accept your offering graciously, should you feel moved to contribute.

Every month, we choose a charity with which to Split the Plate. All 'undesignated' contributions, including cash contributions, are split: half goes to support our Split the Plate partner, half goes to help support the work, wonder, and witness of First Parish. Please make your checks payable to "First Parish" and note Split the Plate on the memo line.

Many parishioners pledge a generous amount per year, and some put their pledge donations in the Sunday collection, as checks made out to "First Parish," noting Pledge on the memo line.

Some also wish to give an amount specifically to the Split the Plate partner. To do this, give by check payable to "First Parish" and mark the memo line accordingly.
