As followers of Christ, we are called to cheerful giving. Our giving is to be an act of worship to God, who has given us all good things.
To help make giving easy, Forcey works in partnership with eGive, an online giving service. Contributions made through eGive are transferred directly from the donor’s bank account to the church’s, by electronic transfer. It’s a safe, secure, confidential and simple way to contribute to FBC.
Benefits of giving online:
o Simple – You can schedule your giving to recur automatically, at whatever interval you like, so you don’t have to remember to write a check.
o Regular – Even if you’re on vacation, out of town or can’t make it to church on a certain Sunday, your donation still arrives in the church’s account right on schedule.
o Flexible – In addition to recurring gifts, you can make one-time donations, and can designate any gift for special needs such as the Building, Mission Possible, Helping Hand or any other designated fund, in addition to the General Fund.
o Secure – Your online donation is processed using 128-bit encryption for the highest level of security, and transferred bank to bank by ACH electronic transfer.
o Help to Volunteers – Giving online saves our volunteer counters from manually sorting, counting and depositing your cash or check donations.
o Good Records – Any online gift can be viewed online through your eGive account and will be included in your year-end giving statement. Please be sure to include your Forcey account number when you register online.
FBC is not able to receive donations by credit card.
