Our Stewardship theme this year of “Rooted in Love” draws inspiration from Psalm 1, “They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season.” The Psalmist invited us to imagine all the good things we can bear when well planted. What might we give away when rooted in love?
The Original Congregational Church has strong roots of love in worship, friendship, service, community and prayer going back almost 330 years. Our congregation is, and has been, that stream of water which nourishes the soul. As Henri J.M. Nouwen said, “Indeed, if we raise funds for a community of love, we are helping God build the Kingdom.” All pledges and gifts to the OCC help strengthen who we are and what we can do together.
The work of our church can happen because of the generous financial and volunteer support of our congregation. We hope that as you consider your giving for the coming year, you will take a step towards greater generosity in your pledge. Please use the pledge form below to make your pledge and return it by Sunday, October 24, 2021.
Because of you, our congregation shares God’s love!
