Giving was vital and foundational to the life of the early church and it is true today. We believe that giving for a believer is not a money issue; it is a heart issue. Knowing God as the Owner and Provider of all things, we use the resources He has provided each of us to help people and accomplish the purposes He has placed before us.
Stewardship is the faithful giving of our Time; our Talents; and, our Tithes to the glory of God. First Baptist Fort Valley is proud to be a good Steward of our planet by now offering paperless ways to contribute Tithes. In addition to the traditional envelope with a check or cash, you can now make a contribution via:
- Online Giving through myEoffering
- Bill Pay through your bank
Even though you are using new methods to give to our church you can be assured your contributions are kept in strict confidence with only the Financial Administrator having access to your record.
We are pleased to announce that our church has partnered with myEoffering to provide you with the convenience of online contribution. Online contribution refers to a process much like online bill pay, whereby donors opt to have their financial contributions to the church withdrawn directly from their credit, debit, checking or savings account in lieu of bringing cash or paper checks each Sunday.
Many people are worried about the security of their financial data, especially with the headlines concerning identity theft. Rest assured that we chose myEoffering in part because of their strict security measures. They have passed all the required tests to be fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. This means they are using the latest technologies available to protect against would-be data thieves. They have processed electronic donations for many churches in the United States and we feel comfortable in the security their service provides.
myEoffering has designed a secure, web-based platform in which donors may privately and prayerfully make one-time or recurring donations. Prayerful consideration of giving to God first enables you to witness a powerful sense of stewardship. You can customize a completely individual method of giving, based on how and when you receive your income - whether it be bi-weekly, monthly, or semi-monthly. By setting up recurring donations to be automatically debited from your account, it allows the church to better plan budgets and expenditures and provides a more accurate financial forecast. It also enables you to stay on the path of your contribution goals by ensuring that even if you are unable to attend church on a particular Sunday, you needn’t worry about remembering to make that contribution the following week. With more consistent stewardship, our church is able to focus more on the ministry of God.

We invite you to try electronic contributions and we hope you find it very convenient. You can use any computer or mobile device to donate electronically. Or, if you don’t have access to a computer but would still like your offerings to be deducted from your account, ask a member of the church administration to set up your offering. As always, we thank you for your generous sharing of treasures in the spirit and practice of stewardship. May God Bless You!
