Giving at First Baptist Decatur
For those of us who call First Baptist Church Decatur home, we believe that generosity is a part of spiritual formation. While our generosity takes many forms, giving financially through our local church is the primary way for us to participate with God in mission to Decatur and the world.
Throughout the website you will see a link to our online giving page. The steps are easy to follow. There are several reasons to consider offering your gifts online:
Transformation. We believe when we unlock our purpose as a people of God, it frees us to make meaningful, impactful contributions to the world around us, not just with our time, but also with our finances.
Consistency and Convenience. Giving online allows us to contribute to the church's ministries out outreach, even when we are far from home.
Helping the church. Let's be honest: online giving helps the finance office to simplify accounting and expedite your gift.
Don't want to give through this online service? Many financial institutions offer free automatic “bill pay” service. With this feature, you authorize your bank or credit union to provide recurring payments to the recipients you indicate. Once again, this is convenient for you and it genuinely helps the church continue ministry even when you are away on business or vacation.
To be considered tax deductible for 2018, gifts not given in worship must be hand-delivered to the church office by Monday, December 31, 2018 or postmarked December 31, 2018.
