Following World War I in 1918, Firwood's financial obligations were a constant problem.  The budget was only $2500, but deficits were frequent, even though a tithers association existed at this time.  The Official Board, forced to display resourcefulness, sponsored oyster suppers, box socials, concerts and birthday envelopes.  By 1920, the period of establishment had come to an end, and the church had gained the reputation of meeting its obligations promptly.
