Support & On-Line Giving

Support for Mission of Church: 

Pledge, Direct Donations, On-Line Giving

First Presbyterian Church is a vital community engaged in spirit filled worship, study, and both local and international mission. The worship and work of First Presbyterian Church is financially provided by the pledges and gifts of its members and friends. Pledges are solicited in the fall of the year for the upcoming budget. The governing body of the church, the Session, is responsible for producing an annual budget for all activities which is presented to the Congregation at its annual meeting in January for the upcoming year.

Donations given to provide for the worship, work and mission are in the General Fund for operations. These donations may be taken up in the offering plate made available during each worship service. Donations may also be sent by mail as follows:

The Harvest Fund to support the building and furnishing of the new worship center:

Our congregation is excited about moving to MorganField, a new residential development in Southeast Lake Charles. Our new home will be located at 4590 Corbina Road, Lake Charles, LA 70615. The initial cost estimate by our architect turned out to be considerably lower than the bids. With that in mind, a special campaign, the Harvest Fund, has been initiated with a goal of $200,000. This campaign will raise funds to pay for the new construction and all of the anticipated items needed for the new facility including extra expenses to hook up the water and electricity; audio equipment, some furnishings, internet wiring and infrastructure, and moving expenses. This fund is a fund of the First Presbyterian Church and is a restricted fund. It may only be used by the Session for construction costs, costs associated with the new worship center, moving expenses, or costs associated with the retirement of the funds borrowed by the church from the Presbyterian Investment and Loan Program.

If you wish to support that campaign, please make out your check and mail just as above, indicating in the note that it is for the Harvest Fund or just drop your check with the notation in the weekly Offering Plate.
