How We Give

First Congregational Tithe Program

First Congregational gives to local and international missions through our Tithe program. Just as each of us has a Biblical call to give back to the Lord, we as a church feel that call. We give 15% of our general offering to outside missions, ministries, and individuals in support of their work locally and abroad.

Who We Support – Locally and Nationally

  • Action International Light to My Path Book Commentaries- Wayne Mac Leod, Cape Breton
  • Power to Change Students- Brian, Halifax
  • Souls Harbour Rescue Mission Nova Scotia, Halifax
  • Wycliffe Bible Translators- Bert and Wilma, Halifax
  • Outreach Fund – a portion of our local support is used for activities such as winter clothing drives, Sunday Suppers, and helping with short-term mission trips
