How to Give

There are many ways we can give back to the Lord to express our love for Him, for fellow believers, and for those who need to know him.  Although this site provides methods for financial giving through our local church, we give in many ways.

You are encouraged to serve in some way within the church and to minister to others as the Lord brings them across your path.  We are challenged to live every day intent upon “Showing God’s Love and Telling His Story”.

“But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you—see that you excel in this act of grace also.” (2 Corinthians 8:7)

As to giving financially to and through First Street Community Church, you have several options:

  • Option 1 - Online Giving
    Clicking on Giving Opportunities, or on a giving link on our main website or FaceBook, will present you with current giving options.  Once you have selected an item, you will be able to give one-time or recurring, and add a gift to another item if desired.  If you have questions about the process, please see our FAQ page which also has a link to a contact form where additional questions can be asked if needed.

     
  • Option 2 - Give During Any of Our Worship Services
    There is an opportunity in every worship service for you to give. If you wish a giving statement at the end of the year, please place your gift inside an “offering envelope”.  These will be in the chair pocket in front of you and additional ones available on a table in the Information Center at the rear of the Worship Center.  You can simply place your envelope, check or cash in the offering plate as it passes by you.

     
  • Option 3 – Mail
    You can mail your contribution, or have your bank bill pay system mail it, to:
       First Street Community Church
       1545 1st Street
       Lincoln, CA  95648

One final quote to encourage you:

"If you're not currently giving to the Lord, I challenge you to start by making a commitment. Give something faithfully and regularly. I'm certain God will honor and bless your commitment. If a tenth seems too overwhelming, consider making it a goal. Giving may feel like a huge sacrifice at first, but I'm confident you'll eventually discover its rewards.

Giving honors the Lord and allows his work to go forward. It also helps build our faith.

We may experience times of financial hardship when we can't give as much, but the Lord still wants us to trust Him in times of lack. God, not our paycheck, is our provider. He will meet our daily needs.

A friend of my pastor once told him that financial giving is not God's way of raising money—it's his way of raising children."
