Giving to Missions

FBCA is honored to be part of a global mission movement taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations of the world.
Through the International Mission Board and North American Mission Board, FBCA actively partners with faithful servants of Jesus Christ,
sharing the love of God in the global cities as well as some of the most difficult locations throughout the planet.
The four special offerings that FBCA partners with throughout the year are listed below & 100% of every dollar given goes to supporting each mission.

Our Current Featured Giving Effort

Trains and sends more than 5,000 missionaries involved in church planting and compassion ministries across the United States and Canada, often in places where the gospel is not welcome. Through the NAMB's Send Network, this offering helps Southern Baptists plant new churches. The Send Relief effort equips churches in addressing poverty, refugees, foster care, adoption, and human trafficking.

2020 Goal: $55,000
Together, we reached & surpassed our goal!
Total Given: $57,732

This year, you  helped us exceed our financial goal, which went to
Feed My Starving Children, a Christian nonprofit striving to end childhood hunger.
In 2018, approximately 1 million children were able to be fed for a year because of
their efforts!  This will provide 48,486 meals or feed 132 children for a year!

 Offering update!
2019 Goal: $8,000
Total Given: $11,636

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Your gifts go to the work of reaching every nation, enabling missionaries  
around the globe to share the truth and hope found only in Jesus Christ.

Alma Hunt Offering

Goal: $15,000  |  Total Given: $16,105

A giving effort that lasts all year...

Cooperative Program

The Cooperative Program (CP) of the Southern Baptist Convention is one of the most dynamic and effective funding models propelling global missions in modern history. Through the CP, every participating church – no matter how large their annual budget or active membership – can be equally invested in a global movement to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations of the world. Launched in 1925, the effectiveness of CP has continued to be dependent upon individuals, churches, state conventions, and SBC entities working toward a common goal of sharing the gospel with every person on the planet.
The CP began as a five-year pledge campaign that, for the first time, included everything— the missions and ministries of all the state conventions as well as that of the Southern Baptist Convention. Thus, a God-given partnership of missions support was conceived.  FBCA is strongly committed to the Cooperative Program which supports missionaries both in North America and throughout the world. Currently, 12 percent of our church budget is designated for the Cooperative Program. By participating with other Southern Baptist Churches we extend our reach to the ends of the earth.  
You may give through FBCA or you may also give directly to disaster relief efforts in Virginia and around the world. 
All donations are tax-deductible.
