Online Giving Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. What is online giving?
Online giving is the ability to give a donation or schedule a series of donations using your debit or credit card.

Q. What is recurring giving?
This gives you the option to choose how often you would like an automatic donation to be made; weekly, monthly, bi-annually, or annually. 

Q. Are there any hidden charges or fees to give online?
No. Select the dollar amount for your gift and that amount will be recognized as your donation with no additional costs or fees. 

Q. Can I use my debit card or credit card?
Yes. We accept any debit or credit card issued by Visa, Mastercard, Discover American Express, and Online Check

Q. Can I try this by giving one time?
Sure. When you select the “Give” button on grandparkway.org, it will automatically take you to the online giving page where you can make a single transaction.

Call or email our Secretary:

Q. How should I tithe if my income varies from pay period to pay period?
Depending on which is more feasible for your situation, you can handle tithing with a fluctuating income in a couple of different ways. Some people choose to give exactly one-tenth of their earnings for each individual pay-period. Others estimate their total earnings for the year and give a portion of the total tithe each week or month throughout the year. 

Q. Can I designate my gift to a particular department or ministry?
Every dollar given to First Baptist Church is used to support the mission of FBC. Gifts can be designated for missions, building debt and general funds.

Q. Should I tithe off my gross earnings or the net amount of my paycheck?
Scripture doesn’t use the literal terms “net” or “gross.” It’s more important to note that the spirit in which we give is of greatest value to God. He tells us in 2 Corinthians 9:7 that “each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give; not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 

Q. Who do I talk to if I have more questions?
Contact Sharon, our Secretary at: 936.825.6597, or send an email to and she'll be glad to answer any questions you may have.
