WHY WE GIVE?

Giving is an integral part of our discipleship. We give cheerfully as an act of worship—responding to the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with a thankful heart. We give sacrificially as an act of obedience—understanding that we are to steward God's resources well and model Jesus to those around us. 


WAYS TO GIVE

As a matter of practice and principle, all gifts are allotted to First's general budget unless they are payment for a specific activity or program (i.e. missions teams, event registrations, etc.).

Pre-authorized Payments 

Authorize a fixed amount to be withdrawn from your bank account or credit card on a semi-monthly or monthly basis. Place the completed form in a general offering envelope, then put the envelope in the offering plate or in the church office lock-box.

Online Giving

Give to First Baptist through your financial institution’s website. Place the completed form (include a void cheque if giving from bank account) in a general offering envelope, then put the envelope in the offering plate or in the church office lock-box. Within 48 hours you will receive an eight-digit code by email to use with your online banking. Simply log in to your personal online banking and add First Baptist Church as a payee using the eight-digit code.

Numbered Envelopes

If you would like numbered envelopes, please place the completed form in a general offering envelope, then put the envelope in the offering plate or in the church office lock-box. For more information, contact the Envelope Secretary at 604-683-8441 ext 231 or .

Cheque or Cash

Cheque or cash in a Sunday morning offering plate is always welcome! Fill out one of the general offering envelopes in the pew rack to ensure proper receipting.
