Giving to the ministries of the church is an important spiritual discipline
that deepens the giver's faith and enables the work of the church to be accomplished. The Bible instructs us to give 10% of our income to the Lord, which is called a tithe. Amounts above that are considered gifts and offerings. First Baptist Alexandria offers several different options for giving; please choose the one that is best suited for you.
FBCA has two options for online giving:
- Set up an account the first time you visit. This will allow you to track your online giving, and to set up one-time or recurring donations.
- Choose the "Quick Give" option to make a one-time donation. No registration is required, and your information will not be stored.
Please consider increasing your donation to cover the 2.5% transaction fee the church is charged for online donations. Your entire donation is tax-deductible.
There is a new way to donate to First Baptist Church of Alexandria: simply send a text message to 703-810-7890.
In your message, indicate the amount of your donation (for example, "50" to donate $50).
The first time you send a text, you’ll be directed to a screen where you securely enter your payment details. (This information will only be collected once).
If you have questions, you can text "HELP" at any time to get more information on how to use the system.
Personalized contribution envelopes: If you would like to bring your tithes and offerings to the church and give during the worship service, we will send offering envelopes to your home throughout the year. If you do not have offering envelopes but would like some, please click above and provide your mailing address. Generic envelopes, found in the back of Sanctuary pews, may also be used.
Preauthorized payment (Bill Pay) – This is a service most banks provide
where you can have your tithes and offerings transferred from your checking
or savings accounts to First Baptist Alexandria at a set time each month or
when you dictate. To use this service, please contact your bank and send
the contribution to:
