Let Your Light Shine

We're passionate about God's call on this church and His people to be Light and Light for Our City—and we believe our call to shine a light over God's city is no less important than it was at the founding in 1872.

How will you glorify your Father in heaven for this coming year?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Commitment Sunday?

This practice of committing money to the work of the Lord in the coming year is really just one way to express our commitment to following Christ in the long obedience. It is effective because money means so much to us and sits so close to our hearts. But it is only a sign and symbol—a partial commitment.

What we really need is to encourage one another to express a full commitment of our very lives to follow Jesus our Lord. Not once, not in the hour, but day after day, year after year, so that when we reach our final breath, we can look back on fields and fields of harvest in the faithfulness of the Lord.

Why a Commitment Card?

God doesn’t ask us to promise to give. He simply asks us to give. So what’s the card about? It’s part of the rhythm of each year in the life of our church to consider financial giving each fall. 

The card is a tool that can help in several ways: 

  1. It can prompt prayer and conversation. It’s an occasion for asking God to lead us in our generosity and for coming to an agreement as a couple or family about what we’ll give.
  2. It’s a spiritual milestone. Many in our congregation have shared that writing down a commitment helps them to remember it and follow through on it.
  3. It helps First Pres to be wise in our financial planning and decisions. We know that God will provide all we need as a church, and we trust Him to do so. But when we have a record of the giving commitments of the people of the church, it allows our leadership to be accountable stewards of God’s provisions.

When can I drop off my Commitment Card at the church building?

Completed Commitment Cards can be dropped off on Monday through Friday at the First Pres Welcome Center (Weber Street entrance) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Can I bring my Commitment Card to in-person worship prior to October 25?

You can drop your Commitment Card in the offering box following in-person worship, or personally bring it to our drop-off event that day from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Weber Street parking lot where you can also bring Thanksgiving food items to fill care baskets for families in need during the holiday.
