What will your legacy be?

For more than 125 years, First Christian Church has been a vibrant presence in Concord and the world beyond.   By including First Christian in your estate plan, you will leave a legacy of support for the church’s mission in worship, education and service.  Bequest gifts can build our endowment or go for a priority you designate. Designated gifts are used as directed to the fullest extent possible, while endowment gifts provide vital, ongoing support to the church.

Recent bequest gifts provided funding for our worship band and paid for air conditioning to be installed in our sanctuary, lobby and Plambeck Room.  As well as help support our youth programs with youth building upgrades, and costs to send youth to church camp. 

What will your gift be?

Gifts to honor your loved ones

Memorial Gifts

Memorial Gifts honor your loved ones’ beliefs and passions when they pass away, and all memorial gifts are recorded in our Book of Remembrance in our lobby.

Recent memorial gifts have provided funds for new screens in our renovated sanctuary, new drapes in our lobby, materials for our Worship & Wonder children's program, and new blinds for our youth building.

Tribute Gifts

Tribute Gifts provide a way to honor your family and friends long after they have passed. Tribute Gifts often are given to mark anniversaries or birthdays, but may be made at any time.  These gifts also are recorded in our Book of Remembrance.

Recent Tribute Gifts have provided funding for new chairs and a new ceiling tile system in Fellowship Hall, and camp scholarships for our youth.
