GENEROSITY 2021: Click here to access the online Estimate of Giving page

Our member, Melissa VerHage, shares what the church means to her and her family and why generosity is so important to her. We are grateful for Melissa and for all who help make First Pres a wonderful family of faith. Together we make a difference!


In spite of social distancing, the important work of First Presbyterian continues! We hope you’ve been a part of the online Sunday worship services held by our pastors, music staff, and volunteers.

While we find new ways to connect spiritually, we also encourage your continued financial support. Although you can’t place your envelope in the offering plate each Sunday, other methods of ensuring that your gifts reach the church include:

1.  Mailing a check (508 Franklin Avenue, Grand Haven, MI 49417)
2.  Giving online (
3.  Dropping off your check to the new dropbox available inside the Clinton Street entrance of the church
4.  Texting FPGH to 73256, which brings you to our online giving portal

As a means to encourage others to also turn in their offerings and pledges, we thought it might be fun to display your continued support for First Pres by asking you to submit a picture of yourself or family (not your gift) mailing or dropping off your offering to the church. Please include the hashtag #fpghgives or #fpghoffering with captions such as “I continue to support First Pres because X program has meant so much to me” or “I continue to support First Pres because God is still working through the church.” etc.

Our budget is built around your willingness to be strong supporters of what God is doing through us. Our ministries continue to move forward because of the faithful giving of our members and friends during these difficult times. Thank you for your generous support!
