Where to Give
The Church Budget
The primary, day-to-day, essential work of the church and its missions partners is supported by the church budget. This includes the operating budget of the church that addresses both in-house and external ministries. The budget is the most important place to include in your financial stewardship, and is the default account for all tithes and non-directed gifts.
Other Designated accounts
Contributions are received for a wide variety of other causes affiliated with FBCX, including our internal and external benevolence funds that help people with food and shelter, memorial gifts to mark someone's death, contributions to any of FBCX's missions partners, and in-house missions efforts such as the Crisis Closet. If giving to a cause other than the budget, be sure to mark the designation on your offering envelope, check, online gift or email.
First Baptist has been blessed by several generous gifts in the past that continue to live on through our endowment. We currently hold three endowed funds for the building and grounds, missions, and music. If you have questions about the endowment, or would like to have a conversation with someone about planned giving, please contact Hunter Godsey.
Ways to Give
If you have given to a church in the past, this is likely the way you've done it. Members receive a box of envelopes at the beginning of each year, or you can find one in the pew. Insert cash, or a check made out to the First Baptist Church of Christ
Offerings may be sent through the mail: Joe Johnson, First Baptist Church of Christ, 511 High Pl, Macon, GA 31201. Please indicate if your offering is intended for the budget or another designated account or ministry.

Simply go to your bank’s website, log in to your individual bank account and follow your bank’s instructions to set up First Baptist Church of Christ as a new payee.
