Why We Give

At GFBC we consider it an honor to "give" as an expression of worship. We believe it is important to give: so that GFBC can continue to move forward in all areas of ministry and service; so that we may always make a great impact on our community as the Kingdom of God; and because it is commanded of us in God's Word and honors Him when we attempt to accomplish our goal to "Give Ourselves Away."

Financial Planning

Many Christians never consider the responsibility of taking care of those we leave behind or the privilege of making one last investment in the Kingdom of God. Estate planning allows you to live out your faith not only through your life, but also through your death. It will be your largest act of Christian financial stewardship! To help us, GFBC has enlisted PhilanthroCorp, a premier Christ-centered estate planning firm that is helping dozens of other churches with this tremendous need. Their purpose is to provide estate planning services to people who desire to honor God with their stewardship of their estate plan. They are not out to get your money, but simply offering a service that can help you obtain a Will if you do not have one or update your current Will if needed.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for making online giving possible. For several years, we have been sending our tithe through electronic banking, but the procedure had recently changed and instead of a payment being subtracted immediately, it started taking 2-3 weeks to clear. It was difficult to keep up with and weekly payments started piling up, causing much stress! We heard Pastor Kevin mention on a Sunday that online giving was available. It was the Lord’s perfect timing and we are so thankful!
