September 26, 2016, we kicked off our First Church 150 campaign – an effort to get 150 pledge units in celebration of our 150th Anniversary. We are excited about this campaign and about the future of our church!

We each have our story of what First Church means to us. Over the next several weeks, we will be hearing some of these stories. Today, Dan and Cathy Gellert share what this place means to their family, and why making a pledge is important to them.

We look forward to you being a part of this campaign. If you are a member or current contributor, you received a letter that included a pledge card, or you can download a PDF version of this pledge form. If you have questions contact, the Darice Bailey in the Advancement Office at 213.355.5239 or

Please download, print and fill out our pledge form, then mail or fax it to us.
