Online Giving

Generosity glorifies God

The Bible teaches that giving is a part of growing in our faith. It is a response to God’s good gifts to us, and it is an act of worship toward Him.

 

If you are visiting our website, but FBC is not your church family, we do not expect you to give. There is no obligation to give at any of our worship services. However, if FBC is your church home, or if the Lord has touched your heart about supporting His work here at FBC, we hope this tool will help you to abound in the grace of giving.
