ONLINE GIVING AND RECURRING GIVING FAQ
Any questions, contact the church office directly at 870-453-2277 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. ARE THERE ANY FEES OR COSTS TO GIVE ONLINE?
A. Not to you. The full amount that you choose to donate goes to First Baptist Church and is considered a tax-deductible gift. There is a small fee to the church for the processing of credit and debit cards and we work with a company who offers the lowest rates available to non-profit organizations. To use a no-fee giving option, you may select the option to cover the cost of the fee with your gift, or consider setting up the church in your bank accounts bill-pay system. Contact the church office for assistance. You may also choose to mail a check to the church at PO Box 637, Flippin, AR 72634.
Q. IS MY INFORMATION SAFE AND CONFIDENTIAL?
A. Yes — Your confidential information using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). When you give, the church does NOT see private information like your debit card or bank account number. To learn more about the merchant account gateway visit: https://get.tithe.ly/
