Christian stewardship is a broad responsibility to faithfully use personal gifts, time, and possessions as divine entrustments to serve God and man. Christian stewardship recognizes the all human abilities and possessions, including the earth and its contents, are a consignment from God to man... and as such we are responsible for their faithful and proper use.

"Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

2 Corinthians 9:7 (NASB)

Offering plate

One part of our worship each week is the passing of the offering plate. This simple act shows and reminds us of our opportunity and obligation to be faithful to the Lord's work through the financial stewardship of His generosity to us. These ongoing gifts support the work of our church and the world-wide mission efforts to which we are committed.


Some of our members, faithful in their giving, have embraced the habit of making their regular contribution through the post office. You may do the same by submitting your contribution to:

First Baptist Church

P.O. Box 729

Pearl River LA 704542

Bill Pay

Many givers have incorporated their church giving into their 'normal' method of paying their bills!

For some, this includes giving through such avenues as PayPal, Venmo, and Zelle. Others have chosen to give through their checking account by establishing a regular monthly gift to the church which their bank processes and then transmits or mails to FBCPR.


There are occasions in which our givers are not able to worship in person on some given Sunday. Many of those who are absent will make a special trip to the church office (on Spruce Street which runs along the north side of the church) in order to say hello and to drop their gift to the church. Our office hours are 9-3 MO-FR. If no one is there you may drop your gift into the door slot.


Some prefer the simplicity of making their contributions to the church through using the text feature of their smart phone. To give to FBCPR through a text message on your smart phone, follow these simple steps:

1. Text the message fbcpr to the number 73256.

2. You will immediately receive a link to complete your gift.

3. Press the link and follow the instructions given.

By choosing "Tithes & Offerings" you give to the on-going, general support of the budget of the church.

Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts are a special category of giving in which individuals and families choose to honor, remember, or memorialize a loved one- living or deceased. These funds are received without designation and are most often used for the purchase of special non-budgeted items needed by the church. These funds are used only with the full knowledge and approval of the church. Your contribution can be made to the Memorial Fund at any time.
