Historic preservation First Church

$100,000 goal

Campaign created 9 months ago

The First Congregational Church has been a source of pride and inspiration in downtown Long Beach, California, for over 100 years. Completed in 1914, the sanctuary serves as a meeting space for a variety of religious communities, a place for civic and election debates, and a concert hall for many recitals. The Church provides food and support for more than 300 homeless people weekly, as well as a summer school and after school programs for dozens of at risk downtown youth.  This Church is a sacred space for progressive worship, welcoming of all no matter their beliefs or where they are on life’s journey.  The building is a Long Beach Historic Landmark, and in 2005, it was listed on The National Register of Historic Places.

Right now, structural problems threaten the terra cotta and three rose windows, which need replacement and reinforcement to protect passersby from possible falling pieces.  The congregation has raised ¼ of its goal, and it wants to raise $100,000 towards the repair of this important church to allow its ministries to continue.  Will you join us?

Thanks in advance for your partnership with us in Ministry.
