Giving

Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…..lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven….For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.”

God has given us everything we have. We merely serve as stewards of what He has entrusted into our care. That’s why giving is an integral part of worship! It is an expression of love and reverence to Him and illustrates our desire to partner with Him in the work of the Kingdom Scripture teaches that the tithe is the first 10% of our income. It is the first fruits of our labor to be used to carry out kingdom work. At FirstSarasota your gifts are prayerfully used so that others may know and experience the love of Christ. Because you give, people are impacted and lives are changed.

God’s word instructs us to bring the tithe to the storehouse. In today’s world, there are many ways for you to accomplish this:

  1. Give Online
  2. Schedule your giving through your bank or accounting software with online bill pay.
  3. Place your donation of cash or check in the offering plate during a worship service. (If you give with cash, please use an envelope if you require a tax receipt.)
  4. Mail or deliver your gift to the church office at the following address: First Baptist Church 1670 Main Street Suite 200 Sarasota, FL, 34236
