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.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel.
We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.  

Giving to the ministries of the church is an important spiritual discipline that deepens the giver's faith and enables the work of the church to be accomplished.
The Bible instructs us to give 10% of our income to the Lord, which is called a tithe.  Amounts above that are considered gifts and offerings.
First Baptist Alexandria offers several different options for giving so that you may choose the one that works best for you.

How To Give

Give a one time gift or setup reoccurring giving.
Reoccurring Giving: One simple thing you can do to help your church and the community during this time is sign up for recurring online giving.  Recurring giving is easy to set up and can be done through our online system or through your bank.  (Credit, debit, ACH, and bill pay are all easy options for recurring giving.)  That way, even if we have to cancel services, we’re still financially able to minister to our community.  

When you take this step, you’re telling our finance team that it’s okay for them to release funds to spend in crisis situations like the Coronavirus outbreak, because they know that it won’t leave the church totally depleted.  

Give In Person

Give cash or check on Sundays in service or drop off any time at the reception desk.

God is not surprised by the Corona virus and the repercussions of it and He still has work to do in Alexandria.  In fact, at FBCA we’re praying and looking for ways He would have us serve the people of our community during a time when many of them are feeling fearful and isolated.

 With many people losing their jobs, or for one reason or another not able to qualify for government assistance, FBCA has expanded the Benevolence Fund  to financially assist people in our local area who are in great need.   To donate:
