unfinished anniversary offering

December 1 & 2 

On the weekend of December 1 & 2, we will receive

our special Unfinished Anniversary Offering. 

We will announce our pledged total on that weekend and

celebrate what God has done in each of our lives to that point. 

This is also when each of us will be challenged to take

a step forward in initiating our commitment.

for nearly 200 years...

Springfield First has had a strong history of giving and generosity, with each generation blessing the next. 

We have reached out to  all ages and throughout many countries to focus on our mission of making

disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.


But we're not finished.


As people, as a church, and in our mission work, God is working in and through us. 

I urge you to continue to participate in this meaningful generosity initiative. 

With your help, we will grow together as children of God and as disciples.


Help us write the next chapter of our story. 

Yours in Grace, 

Roger Grimmett



We are writing three stories together:

  • unfinished... people

    The Bible says we are not finished as people. We still have work to do!

    With our One Fund, we are experiencing grow ththrough discipleship, 

    while increasing our ministry focus and events to touch the lives

    of children, students, and adults.


    Milestones:

    • 130 students and volunteers grew in discipleship through Beach Week.

    • 388 children were served and discipled through Adventure Bible Camp.

    • 145 adults attended discipleship classes this fall during Midweek Connect –  the most ever!

    • 134 participated in special Communion services for the homebound.

    36 new members and 26 confirmands chose to call Springfield First home!

  • unfinished... building

    The debt on our building and property is under $4 million now! 

    We have paid more than $300,000 toward the principal of the debt

    this past year and hope to continue to further reduce indebtedness.

  • unfinished... mission

    Our church leadership is increasingly pursuing an outward

    focus locally, nationally, and internationally. 


    Milestones:

    • Over 160 people in our congregation served in June during “OneThing” weekend.

    • A new scholarship fund enables recipients to go on mission trips.

    • For the first time ever, we sent 5 mission teams to travel throughout

      the US and world to show the love of Jesus Christ to his people.
