We appreciate ALL forms of gifts!
Time and Talent Giving
It is the time, talent, dedication and devotion of the volunteer members of the Congregational Church of Hollis in serving as church officers or on boards, committees and ministry teams that keeps the church running and make the countless educational, service and fellowship opportunities possible. Click HERE for a list of such roles.
In addition, one of the core tenets of CCoH is our Service to others. Our commitment to service provides opportunity for members to volunteer their time and talent in a variety of ways, all of which are extremely important and vital in meeting our commitment. Finally, we also love to have fun and enjoy the fellowship of church members AND provide opportunities for the entire community to gather and enjoy themselves, none-of-which would be possible without the time and talent of many volunteers. Click HERE to see the many ways we serve others and the many events we hold to enjoy fellowship together and with the community-at-large.
The stewardship pledge drive is held in the fall. Pledging itself is not a financial transaction, but a means to communicate to the Stewardship board what you anticipate your financial support for the church will be over the course of the upcoming year. You can click HERE to pledge online or you can submit a pledge card which can be obtained by visiting the church’s main office. Pledging helps the church plan its budget for the fiscal year starting in January. Once you have submitted your pledge, members are encouraged to set up online giving (click “Give Online” line above).
Donations and pledge payments can be made electronically via our website using your credit card or bank account. Click the “Give Online” button above to initiate Online Giving or click HERE for online giving instructions and HERE for online giving frequently asked questions.

You can put cash or a check in the weekly offering plates passed around during Sunday services. Please make checks payable to “Congregational Church of Hollis” and note in the memo of the check how you prefer your donation to be applied (eg. pledge offering, capital campaign, deacons fund, etc.). If you want your cash donation to be recorded under your name by the church (for tax purposes), please be sure it is in your offering envelope so the church knows who provided the donation.
You can send a check to the church main office. Please make checks payable to “Congregational Church of Hollis” and send your donation to 3 Monument Square, Hollis, NH 03049. Please note in the memo of the check how you prefer your donation to be applied (eg. pledge offering, capital campaign, deacons fund, etc.)
If you wish to make a donation through transfer of stock, please contact the church office at 603-465-7797 or email@example.com.
Another way of financial giving is as a a gift or bequest to the CCoH Trust. Your gift would help ensure the continued presence of CCoH regardless of what the future brings. The UCC provides guidance on planned giving opportunities.
Do you or your company have tangible goods the church could use? Please consider donating such goods to the church as an “in-kind” donation. Or perhaps your company or the company you work for has a service they would be willing to provide (one-time or ongoing)? In-kind services are professional services donated by groups such as corporations, small businesses, vendors, colleges, individual professionals or tradespeople which then reduces the expenses of the church for such services. If you wish to make an in-kind donation of goods or services, please contact the church office at 603-465-7797 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
