Dear Member of First Church, 

Does your house ever need repairing? Of course it does!  

So too, at this time, does The First Church of Sutton, in order to continue our Mission and Ministry to the Community uninterrupted for many years to come.  In our recent SEIZE OUR FUTURE House Meetings, restoring First Church was cited as one of our top priorities.  Many of you said that you would like to see building renovations as promptly as possible, as summed up in the following Mission Statement. 

Our Mission is to renovate Sutton First Church, universally recognized as an icon of our town since its early founding days, in a way that honors its tradition, history and place in the Community, while bringing the building up to date, ready to serve future generations.

To this end, First Church is launching a 3-Phase program, starting in 2019, in order to address the priorities cited by the Congregation, as well as address work known to be required to update our facilities. 

We have titled it the ‘RENEWING, RESTORING, REJOICING’ Fundraising Campaign, and are kicking it off with a Matching Gift Campaign, as an anonymous Member Donor has generously committed to matching up to $50,000 in donations for this project. 

This Matching Gift is an incredible opportunity to start addressing our Renovation and Repair needs as soon as possible. Phase I, which addresses renovation of the Steeple, Front Body of The Church and the Sanctuary Ceiling will be scheduled to start as soon as we have matching campaign funds in hand. 

The Members of First Church are not alone in this effort. There are members of the Community that are working on securing further funding as well, but it is up to us to lead the way and ensure that our House, First Church, is able to fulfill our Mission and Ministry for many years to come. Also, please note that if you live in Sutton, you will be receiving a similar letter that is appealing to all town residents.

For your convenience, we have enclosed a return envelope for your ‘RENEWING, RESTORING, REJOICING’ tax-deductible donation, or you may drop it off at the church office, or you may access our website at www.SuttonFirstChurch.net/renew and make a donation via our secure PayPal link. We thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this urgent need, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to any one of us to discuss this in more detail at your convenience.  

Sincerely, 

The Sutton First Church ‘RENEWING, RESTORING, REJOICING’ Campaign Committee Glenn Anderson, Russ Kassatly, Todd Mitchell, Scott Paul, Marty Shaw, Gary Verrill
