How can I give?
At First Christian Church of Malvern, there are a number of ways you can give your tithes and offerings.
Each Sunday, we dedicate a small portion of our worship time to passing along a collection plate. You may place check or cash in the plate and pass it along. If you would like special offering envelopes to use during this time, please call the office at 330.863.1303.
You may also set up an online "bill pay" service through your bank, and they can mail a check to the church for you, usually at no extra charge to you.
You can also mail your offering to the church at 4046 Coral Rd NW, Malvern, Ohio 44644. Or drop it off to the office during our regular operating hours, Monday through Friday.
One of the quickest and easiest ways for you to give is to do it on-line or on your phone. For this, you need to start by setting up an account with Tithe.ly. It is safe and secure! Once you've created a Tithe.ly account and entered your payment method, you can give your offerings to FCCM in just a few short clicks. You can even set up recurring tithing on a schedule of your choosing. If you have any questions about on-line giving, contact us. If you're ready to give via Tithe.ly now, just click on the Give Now button below.
Which ever method you choose, your tithes and offerings help us share the gospel and be the hands and feet of Christ in our community and around the world.
New! Giving to our New Worship Center Building Fund
"Not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice"
We have special green envelopes available in the church office or on the bulletin board in the hallway for gifts toward the new worship center we want to build. You can also give on-line at Tithe.ly by choosing New Worship Center as the fund choice. (Click on the "Give Now" button to go to Tithe.ly or see above for information about on-line giving.)
This is such an exciting time for FCCM! Just as our forefather did, we are stepping out on faith. In the past 150 years, God has done amazing things through FCCM, and He continually blesses us to be able to do more. Having a larger worship center and lobby will allow us to continue sharing the Gospel and loving on our community. Now and in the months to come, please prayerfully consider sacrificial gifts that will help pave the way for current and future generations to know the love of Christ.
Why Should We Give?
As Christ-followers, one way our faith is revealed is in our habits of giving. Establishing regular giving habits teaches us to put God first in our lives and to trust Him for our provisions. Giving is a form of worship. Tithing demonstrates our obedience to God, and the Bible shows throughout that God always blesses obedience. But the main reason we give is simple: We give because God first gave to us. John 3:16 tells us God gave His only Son so that we might have everlasting life. That Son, Christ Jesus, died for us while were yet sinners. What a gift! James 1:17 tells that every good gift is from Him. Because God gives so abundantly to us, we should give back a small portion of those gifts as a way to honor God, to give Him the glory, and to show our love for Him, and to say He is Lord over all aspects of our life---including our finances.
Just a few places in scripture where you can read about giving:
- Proverbs 3:9
- Proverbs 11:24-25
- Malachi 3:8-9
- Malachi 3:10
- 2 Corinthians 8
- 2 Corinthians 9:7
As our church family faithfully gives, First Christian Church of Malvern is able to answer God's call and the world is changed for His glory. We are able to spread the Good News, help widows and orphans, feed people, love on the lost, grow disciples, support missionaries around the world, and create an environment in which people can come to believe in Jesus, belong to Jesus, and become more like Jesus.
