Giving is a vital part of spiritual formation and maturity. Giving is an active expression of our faith. It recognizes God as our True Provider. It affirms our confidence in His ability to supply all we need and is an act of gratitude and dependence. When we trust God in our giving it allows us to partner with God and His work through our church, our community and in the world. Scripture provides much freedom in how we are to give. You may give of your time, talent, prayers and money. Several guiding principles are for our giving to be: joyful, sacrificial and regular. For financial giving, many find the tithe (10%) of one’s income to be a helpful guide. Give at whatever level you have the faith to act – and then trust God.
Below are several safe and secure methods of giving that provide convenient ways to offer tithes and financial contributions to Calvary Baptist Church.
Sunday morning service: Simply place cash or checks in the offering plate during the collection at any Sunday service. Be sure to use your offering envelopes or an envelope from our pew rack. If contributing cash, include your name and address on the envelope, so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes.
Postal mail: Checks may also be sent to the church through the mail at the following address:
Calvary Baptist Church
608 Campbell Ave, SW.
Roanoke, VA 24016
Online giving: Online giving simplifies contributing by allowing for a specific dollar amount to be sent to Calvary Baptist Church on a specific date, thus decreasing the number of checks you have to write. This can be done in either of two ways:
1 – You may schedule contributions directly through your bank’s website using their Bill-Pay Feature. You set up the recipient to be Calvary Baptist Church using the church’s address given above. If an account number is requested, just use your envelope number. Once setup, you may schedule a payment whenever you choose. The advantage of this option is that there is usually no charge for this service; therefore, the church receives the full amount of your donation.
2 – You may click the donate button below that uses PayPal to schedule payments through your bank account using your debit card or your credit card. PayPal is secure and a safe way to donate. You can use PayPal without having an account for a onetime donation. If you would like to make recurring donations, it is suggested that you establish a PayPal account to eliminate entering your information each time.
It is a great joy to be able to give unto the Lord as He has given unto us. We invite you to give unto the work of ministry here at Calvary Baptist Church. Whether you are a regular supporter or a one-time giver, your love and kindness is greatly appreciated, and we “thank you” for answering the call to contribute to God’s work.
