Why We Give

We believe in the transformative power of generosity. By investing our time, talents, and treasures into the Family of FIRST, and the community at large, we are actively taking part in the eternal investment of God’s Kingdom. At the heart of our giving and stewardship is deep gratitude to God for all that we have and the desire to share these gifts with others. Join with us in that investment and start impacting eternity.

Electronic Bank Transfer

When you set up electronic banking you are truly maximizing your giving. It’s the most cost effective method for processing and the best way to get the most out of your giving.

If you give $100 using the following

  • Electronic banking doesn’t involve any processing fees (total giving: $100.00)
  • Debit card charges are 1.80% of your total transaction (total giving $98.20)
  • Credit card charges are even higher resulting in some cases as little as $97.00

As you can imagine, these fees add up when multiplied by greater amounts and over hundreds of gifts a month.

If you would like to switch to electronic banking but need assistance please call our business administrator office at 803-343-8580
