Ways to Give
The mission of Fellowship Bible Church could not be accomplished without the faithful giving of the Fellowship family and friends. Fellowship practices the highest standards of stewardship and accounts for every dollar through it’s financial team and yearly reviews from an independent financial auditor. Your giving is both an act of worship and a discipline of stewardship. We take this seriously and want you to as well.
In addition to giving on a Sunday morning during our offering, we have multiple ways for you to respond in worship with your giving:
Online Giving & Electronic Funds Transfer
Bank Draft Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
The electronic option with no fees to Fellowship is the EFT. Very simple to set up and manage. Simply send an email to our Finance Team (this will go to our financial bookkeeper) with the following information:
-Draft dates of the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th
-Amount to debit each contribution
-Date to begin drafts
-A voided check (can be a scanned or electronic image of a check)
Whenever you need to make a change, simply send an email or call Lesta Eberhard at 501-327-3444 with the requested changes. That’s it!

These include, but are not limited to securities, property and land, stocks, life insurance, and other items of value including automobiles. Below you will find more information on each of these.
If you need additional information about making a non-traditional gift, please contact Lesta Eberhard at 501.327.3444 or at email@example.com.
Over the years, Fellowship has been given automobiles, computers, office furniture, furniture/furnishings, and more. We gratefully accept all gifts-in-kind that we can truly use, or we try to direct donors to other ministries that have specific needs. Gifts-in-kind can be a little more complicated due to I.R.S. regulations, but we will be happy to help you with the process. Please contact Lesta Eberhard at 501.327.3444 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any possible gift-in-kind donations. We will determine if and how we can use the items and how we will get the items.
You can make gifts to Fellowship with a portion or all of a piece of real estate that can be sold and the proceeds used to further financially resourcing our ministries, or for the expansion of Fellowship’s presence in the community. Please contact Lesta Eberhard at 501.327.3444 or at email@example.com to discuss how to transfer real estate from your account to the Fellowship’s account for the best tax advantage.
Stocks & Securities
With the recent increases in the stock market, a gift of stock or securities may be the best choice for you. You will receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock and you will not have to pay capital gains tax on the appreciation. Please contact Lesta Eberhard at 501.327.3444 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this giving option.
Churches can benefit from life insurance policies. If the original purpose for a life insurance policy no longer exists, a donor can make Fellowship the beneficiary of the policy or a donor can give the premium to Fellowship for a tax deduction on a policy that the church would own and be the beneficiary. The deduction can be taken immediately and the amount of the contribution is typically the replacement value or cost basis of the policy. Please contact Lesta Eberhard at 501.327.3444 or at email@example.com to discuss this giving option.
