Financial giving at Rives Baptist Church can generally be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is a percentage of your income contributed to the church on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering. When you choose to give over and above your tithe, you can direct your offering to a specific area such as missions, a specific church ministry, outreach programs and even short term missions trips that are scheduled.

  • Ways I Can Give?

    Weekend services: Simply place cash or checks in the offering during the collection on Sundays. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope, so that donation credit may be provided to you for tax purposes. 

    Online giving: Online giving allows for a specific dollar amount to be deducted automatically from a checking or savings account or you may choose to use a MasterCard or Visa Debit Card. You can set up online giving either as a one-time donation or a recurring gift. Online giving is not only easy, it's also safe and secure through Easy Tithe. This option helps individuals and families remain faithful in their giving even when they are out of town or unable to attend a weekend service.

    By mail: Mail your donation to Rives Baptist Church 2800 West Berry Rd, Rives Junction Michigan 49277. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope so that donation credit may be given to you for tax purposes.

  • What is a Gift in Kind?

    Items paid for or given in goods, commodities, or services instead of money:

    For Example: Joe Rives  purchases a case of cleaning supplies for Rives Baptist Church. Joe Rives doesn't want to be reimbursed but would rather have the cash that he spent for the cleaning operations of Rives Baptist Church that he gave to be applied to his or her giving record. 

    The IRS prohibits a 501 c3 organization to give In kind receipts for labor or services rendered.
