Stewardship begins with the understanding that everything we have is a gift from the Lord…our time, our talents, and our financial resources. Simply stated, Biblical stewardship means we understand God’s ownership of everything (1 Chr. 29:11-12), and joyfully desire to honor the Lord through our tithes, gifts, and offerings (Prov. 3:9; 1Cor. 16:1-2). May God be worshipped through our cheerful and sacrifical giving for the proclamation of His Name!
Ways to Give
There are many different ways to worship the Lord through giving at Bethany Baptist Church. If you have any questions, please contact our church office.
- Check — You can give by check by placing your gift directly in the offering plate during any worship service, or through the mail anytime (see address at bottom of page). Be sure to note what ministry your gift is meant for on the memo line of your check. We encourage everyone to use giving envelopes when possible (or write their assigned giving number on the check) to facilitate accurate giving records. Please click here to request your personalized set of giving envelopes.
- Cash — Cash gifts and offerings should only be given in a worship service (do not send cash through the mail). Be sure to use a giving envelope if you want your cash gift to be recorded in your giving records. Please click here to request your personalized set of giving envelopes.
