Volunteers Needed! October Parking Fundraiser 
Click here to volunteer! 
The church's biggest fundraiser of the year is the Annual October Parking Fundraiser and it begins October 6! 
The premise is simple: church volunteers help to sell park spots in the back church parking lot and front circle. Each shift will be run by either Helen Jacoby or Mary Collari (or another church member), but we do need additional volunteers to help hold signs, collect money, and organize the cars as they come in. Shifts are generally two hours. 
Costumes are welcome and encouraged but not required!
We hope you can spare a little time this special Salem Holiday Season to help support First Church! Please sign up online by going to the First Church website, in the weekly e-Herald or with Mary on Sundays!
