Giving

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  
Matthew 6:21

Why We Give

God is generous and so He calls us to be as well.  We give not out of obligation or guilt, but out of joy as a part of our worship and gratitude.  When we give our first and our best, it shows the world that our hearts trust in God and helps share the Gospel as well as meet needs. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

Tithes and Offerings

What are "tithes and offerings" and is there a difference?  The word "tithe" means a tenth and an offering refers to gifts beyond the 10%.  Tithing is for people who have placed their trust in God, so if you haven't yet, please do not feel any obligation to tithe.  Offerings are extra gifts that go toward special needs helping those within our church, in our community and around the world.

Are Donations Deductible?

Donations are tax deductible provided that you did not receive any good or service in return.  Your contribution will be counted toward the year it was received.  Please ensure any mail-in donations are post-marked by December 31st.

Do You Provide Receipts?

FBC provides year-end statements of contributions which are recorded to your name.  Please ensure your name is attached to your donations.
