Where should I GIVE?
There are several funds categories to designate your contributions towards. Below is a brief description of what your contribution goes towards. Please note that your entire offering is tax deductible as allowed by law. A small credit card transaction fee is assessed by e-giving on all contributions and will deducted from the total amount indicated. The entire amount of the offering after transaction charges have been assessed will be sent to the corresponding SBC special offering as designated below.
If you have any questions about giving, please do not hesitate to contact the church office during normal business hours.
