Church Service Cancellations
Our church spiritual leadership is cancelling church services until further notice in order to minimize the health risk to our worshippers.
Resumption of weekly services will be evaluated after assessing the progression of the Coronavirus and associated transmission risk.
For our church members and supporters, your support is as important as ever to help the church and the communities it serves. Stewardship pledge cards and contributions can be mailed (161 Black Point Rd) or dropped off at the Annex during business hours (M-F 9AM-3PM) in the next two weeks.
Please join us in praying for all those that have suffered from the Coronavirus either directly or indirectly including those who have lost their lives and their family and friends impacted by loss.
Parking Lot Fund
Our faith is strong but our parking lot is crumbling, and last Spring it took 3 dump truck loads to clean up the dirt and crumbled pavement. We have large puddles form due to poor drainage and now there is grass growing where it shouldn't. Each winter the plowing digs up more of the crumbling pavement. It doesn't make sense to put money into sealing and striping when it is in such poor shape.
According to church records the parking lot was extended for the Parish Hall in 1956. It has been maintained with crack and surface sealing as well as striping since then. It is time to do the work that needs to be done. The estimates to do this work are approximately $100,000.00.
So many people depend on this parking lot being safe. It is used for church services and activities, the Food Pantry, Scouts, community groups, the Town of Scarobourgh, and other meetings.
Over $10,00.00 funds have been contributed to date, but we still have a ways to go to reach our goal. The continuous giving is from our church family, the community and businesses. We want to raise the funds over a three year campaign. God's Promise to us is that he will multiply all that we give. We gratefully accept any and all donations.
Please consider supporting this effort with a donation via check to 161 Black Point Road, Scarborough, ME 04074, payable to First Congregational Church, or via credit card by visiting our GOFUNDME page. Thank you!
