Give to First Parish of Watertown

We work together to make First Parish of Watertown a vibrant and empowering place for all who enter our doors. We serve in our church with time, talent, and generosity of spirit. We strive to live our values in the broader community as well, taking part in community service with groups and as individuals, and bringing our whole selves to the world outside. We commit to provide our financial support to First Parish.

Our generous financial contributions to First Parish are essential to the ongoing success and growth of all our programs and all we do together as a faith community. Ways to give:


A pledge is your promise to make a contribution in support of the annual operating budget of the church.


Individual gifts – though pledge payments and one-time donations – support the church and its work in the world.

Planned Gifts

Make a lasting gift for future generations by including the First Parish of Watertown in your estate plan.

Annual Pledge Campaign

A pledge is your promise to make a contribution in support of the operating budget of the church. Pledges from our members and friends are the major source of income for the church’s operating budget each year.

The annual appeal and pledge period runs each year from late February to the end of March. You can pay in installments throughout the church fiscal year (April 1 to March 31).

Pledgers may check their giving history and pledge progress throughout the year from their Breeze accounts. All pledge information is confidential. If your financial situation changes during the year, you can modify your pledge by contacting the Treasurer.

At such a time as this, my faith in church has never been firmer. This is a growing, thriving, big-loving church that is weathering one of the most trying of times with grace immeasurable.

Rev. Sophia Lyons
