At First Congregational UCC, we live out of a spirit of gratitude and practice generosity because we can do more together than any of us can do on our own, because our world needs more kindness, more compassion, more love -- a just peace. Your financial support ensures that our doors are wide open, that a strong and supple faith can be nurtured, and that we are able to do the work that God calls us to do.

Flexibility and Accessibility:

To help make supporting our ministries and our community as easy as possible, we offer several different ways to give. Members and friends can now give in person, online, by text, or even through mail.

You Decide:

When you offer support to First Congregational UCC, you also get to decide how your gift will be used. There are two types of contributions.

General contributions are used to support our church's mission and ministries. This is the most common form of support.

Special contributions are used to help meet needs around the world through the wider church. Throughout the year, our special contributions go to support:

  • One Great Hour of Sharing
  • Neighbors in Need
  • Strengthen the Church
  • The Christmas Fund
  • Justice & Witness Ministries

We also welcome Planned Giving and Memorial Giving. To inquire about these opportunities, give us a call at (507) 387-6592 or send us an email at
