Weaving the Fabric of Community

A computer screen filled with ZOOM rectangles. Blue sky beyond tall clear windows. Prismatic reflections on maroon seat cushions and uplifted, masked faces. Prayers typed into “the chat.” Hugs in the aisles of the supermarket, an unexpected card in the mail. Five around a firepit. Laughter spilling from rainbow chairs. Soup on the doorstep. A new puppy. Birth, death, a deferred wedding.

The web of life. The fabric of community.

For generations, FPL has woven our faith, generosity, service, and love into a fabric that binds neighbors to strangers, prayers to action, the mundane to the holy. A fabric that offers love and care in times of need, strength, and courage to seek and serve. It connects our founders, our faith traditions, all who have come before, and all who are here, now.

First Parish in Lincoln.

In recent years, change within and beyond our walls has disrupted our patterns. Some have found silver threads. Others are frayed and worn thin. Yet, we know how to darn, mend, and patch. We show up. We pray, sing, offer care. We fight climate change and advocate for social justice. We find faith, grace, life-changing service. A new cookie recipe, a shared passion, a dear friend. We weave and we are woven into the fabric of this community.

The loom on which we weave this fabric of community is the First Parish in Lincoln. With our annual Stewardship campaign, we raise funds to pay for its ongoing operation. Just as each thread strengthens the fabric, every pledge strengthens our future. Last year, we raised $450,000 and funded a fiscally sound budget. This year, we hope to raise 5% more to cover cost-of-living increases. Inflation affects us differently; perhaps you can pledge more to offset those who can’t.

Please pledge by May 1. Your pledge is a promise to support FPL over the next fiscal year (July 2022 – June 2023). You can pay it quarterly, monthly, weekly, or all at once. If you have questions about last year’s pledge, please email our church administrator Silvia (silvia@fplincoln.org). If you have other questions about stewardship, please, contact Sarah Andrysiak at generousgiving@fplincoln.org. If you need a paper pledge form, download it here.

Please join us and pledge to steward FPL for 2022-23. Let’s weave a fabric and future beyond our wildest dreams.

Generosity and the First Parish in Lincoln

We are a self-sustaining community and our generosity makes our spiritual community possible. Our activities are funded through stewardship, rental income and draws from our Endowment funds.

Our fiscal year runs from July 1 – June 30, and we launch our annual stewardship campaign in March.

Please consider including First Parish in Lincoln in your estate planning. Bequests are an opportunity to sustain our spiritual community into the future. If you have questions or would like additional information, please email generousgiving@fplincoln.org. If you would like to make a pledge to support the current year’s operations, please email Silvia Dieckow, Parish Administrator, at silvia@fplincoln.org.
