God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. As the way that money is exchanged changes, we at The First Providence Missionary Baptist Church are extending members a new way to offer their financial gifts to God.
Anyone who would like to give to First Providence Missionary Baptist Church online is welcome to do so through our church website. The system makes it easy to quickly transfer money from a bank account or debit card to the church safely and securely. One-time gifts and recurring withdrawals can both be set up, and gifts can be given either to the church's general fund or a specific church project.
At the First Providence Missionary Baptist Church, we will continue to take an offering during the service for people who prefer to give in person by cash or check. For members who would rather transfer money electronically, giving through the church website is an option.
Giving is an important aspect of our Christian life. After all, Luke records that Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). At The First Providence Missionary Baptist Church our Pastor encourages all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them. Luke 6:36-38 Jesus also said, Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
For those who prefer an online way to give, our church website now offers one. Feel free to set up an account and make an offering, or contact our church Financial Officer for help with giving through the site.
