A Pledge is your commitment to make a financial gift that supports the goal of First Baptist Church to eliminate debt and use those resources to provide ministry to the community in the name of Jesus.   Pledging is an important spiritual practice enabling us to grow in faith and generosity.

In order to retire the debt in three years or less, we are asking for a monthly contribution of $99-299 from each household.  This offering is above your normal tithe and gifts that go to the operating budget of the church.  Prayerfully consider what God would have you do in the form of a financial commitment to this purpose.

But it doesn’t stop there.  You can choose to pledge and give at any time, as you can.  There will also be many opportunities for you to help raise money and join your faith community in action.

Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
