Giving

It is said that Jesus spoke more about money and possessions than any other subject. He said things like "Make sure your treasure is safe in heaven, where thieves cannot steal it and moths cannot destroy it" and "you can not serve God and money." One thing for sure, the Bible says that how you use and spend money is an indicator of the state of your heart. "Where your treasure is," he says, "there is where your heart will be."

At Bacon’s Castle, we believe that God’s desire for each of us is that we steward what he has entrusted to. God is the owner of all things and we are his managers. Our heart’s desire should be to use our resources as He leads. Many folks believe that God expects us to give ten percent of our resources to God and then we are free to use the other ninety as we see fit. We believe that God owns it all and we should seek to manage it all as he directs.

One of his directives to each of us is to support His kingdom’s work with sacrificial giving. We believe that every member of Bacon’s Castle ought to support the work of our church family financially however God directs them. We also believe that giving is an act of personal obedience, and not necessarily an act of corporate worship.

If you visit Bacon’s Castle, one of the things you will notice is that we don’t pass the offering plates during the worship service. Not that we think that is wrong, we just believe that giving is something you do between you and God. Consequently we have placed offerings boxes at a couple of locations and you are free to give to God’s work out of your love and obedience.

Automated Bill Pay is often the easiest and most effective way to automate your giving. Many banks offer their customers the ability to have checks automatically drafted by their bank and mailed to the recipient (such as the church) on a recurring or one time basis. In addition, 100% of your gift goes to the ministries of Bacon's Castle Baptist because there are no processing fees. Please contact your bank to setup automated bill pay and if you do, use the information below:
• Payee: Bacon's Castle Baptist Church
• Payee Address: 86 Bacon's Castle Trail, Surry VA 23846

You may also choose to give online here through Paypal. It's safe, simple and secure and all you'll need are a few minutes to go through the process. You do not need your own Paypal account and it allows for a specific dollar amount to be given using your checking/savings account or a credit card account. When using this method a small percentage of 2.9% +.30 does come out of your gift for processing fees.

Thank you for your giving!
