GIVE

At Fellowship Baptist Church, we understand that God owns everything. We choose to give sacrificially while managing all of God’s resources for His glory.

Why Give Online

The Benefits of Giving Online

It helps you to prioritize. – Giving online allows you to be intentional. By setting up a recurring contribution, you can ensure that your first fruits are faithfully given back to God. You are able to schedule the date and amount you would like your offering to come out of your account. Set it and know that you won’t forget to make God a priority in your finances.

It makes giving simple. – Not everyone carries a checkbook. We want you to give the way that works for you. We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, can even directly withdraw via ACH from your bank account. (ACH is suggested)

It is safe. – We utilize an encrypted secure website for your online records. Online giving is more secure than giving with a check or cash because an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.

It is helpful for our office staff. – Online giving is cost effective for our church to process, and it makes our record keeping much easier.
