WELCOME!

Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Friendsville. We are pleased that you have chosen to worship with us, and we trust that you will be pleased by both the spirit of the service and the warmth of the people.

It is our desire to exalt Jesus Christ and to meet your needs through Bible-inspired preaching, Bible-based teaching, and Christ-centered fellowship. We invite you to consider becoming a member of First Baptist Church. The guidelines below explain how you can unite with our church.

We hope that you will be blessed by participating in worship with us.


HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER OF FBCF

TWO NEW WAYS TO GIVE OFFERINGS (or tithes) AND DESIGNATED GIFTS TO THE CHURCH

On February 16th, we will activate access to TITHE.LY—a church software application that allows members to give online.  First, please note that the traditional way of giving by checks and/or cash will continue to be available.  The two new ways will complement our traditional way of giving; yet will give each member an option to select the best way to give their tithes/gifts to our Church.

The two new ways to give are: (1) Online giving—using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, etc. and (2) mobile giving—using the Tithe.ly app on your mobile device.

If you decide to use one of these two new ways, you will see that giving to FBC-F using Tithe.ly will be super easy.

Here’s some basic information about giving through Tithe.ly.

#1 – Give Online

  1. Simply go to our church’s website. There will be a button that’s titled “GIVE”.  Click on this green button and you will access the Tithe.ly platform.
  2. If you’re on a computer (or any device with an internet connection), you can easily give to FBC-F by heading to Tithe.ly/Give. Once there, search for your church, and fill in the giving form.

#2 – Give in App

Want to give to your church using the convenience of your smartphone? No problem! Download the Tithe.ly App from the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android). Once you’ve downloaded the app, create an account or log in, locate your church and tap “Give Now” to complete your gift!

Should you have a question, please ask David Hipps or email your question to David at hippsdw@gmail.com
