GIVE

Giving at First Baptist Church

We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give—not out of obligation but out of a spirit of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us.

Ways to Give

There are many easy ways for you to give.  Online giving may be used as a one-time gift or has the option of being a recurring gift.  You are always, of course, welcome to give in person during our weekly worship service or mail your tithe and offering directly to the church.

WHY WE GIVE

"In every way I’ve shown you that by laboring like this, it is necessary to help the weak and to keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35

“Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 (NRSV)
