Where to Give

The Church Budget

The primary, day-to-day, essential work of the church and its missions partners is supported by the church budget. This includes the operating budget of the church that addresses both in-house and external ministries. The budget is the most important place to include in your financial stewardship, and is the default account for all tithes and non-directed gifts.

Other Designated Accounts

Contributions are received for a wide variety of other causes affiliated with FBCX, including our internal and external benevolence funds that help people with food and shelter, memorial gifts to mark someone’s death, contributions to any of FBCX’s missions partners, and in-house missions efforts such as the Crisis Closet. If giving to a cause other than the budget, be sure to mark the designation on your offering envelope, check, online gift or email.


First Baptist has been blessed by several generous gifts in the past that continue to live on through our endowment. We currently hold three endowed funds for the building and grounds, missions, and music. 

Legacy Giving

A planned gift, made in lifetime or at death, is part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. It is a method of supporting non-profit and charitable organizations that enables individuals or donors to make larger gifts than they could make from their income. An effectively planned gift can bring remarkable benefits (including a life-time income and tax benefits) to you and/or your loved ones, as well as provide you the reward of creating life-sustaining support for our Church or many other non-profit organizations.

Though planned gifts are unique to each person, they all have something in common. The gifts made as a part of our estate planning are some of our final words to our family and to our community about what we matters to us. If you would like to talk about planning a legacy gift, please contact Scott, or Hunter Godsey, the chair of our Finance Committee.

Ways to Give

In Worship

If you have given to a church in the past, this is likely the way you’ve done it. Members receive a box of envelopes at the beginning of each year, or you can find one in the pew. Insert cash, or a check made out to the First Baptist Church of Christ.

By Mail

Offerings may be sent through the mail: First Baptist Church of Christ, 511 High Pl, Macon, GA 31201. Please indicate if your offering is intended for the budget or another designated account or ministry.

Automatic Bank Draft

Many members choose to set up automatic gifts through their bank’s online bill-pay system. Simply go to your bank’s website, log in to your individual bank account and follow your bank’s instructions to set up First Baptist Church of Christ as a new payee. Your bank will print and cut a check and mail it to FBCX on your behalf. This is the most cost-effective way to give online.

Online Giving

Our online giving portal allows you to schedule a recurring or one-time gift charged to either your debit or credit card or directly as an ACH from your checking account. Through this online account you can easily see your past giving history and manage your future giving amount. When using this platform, please consider covering the 3% processing fee.
