UNION BAPTIST CHURCH

We are never more like God than when we give. And every time we make a decision to be generous, 
we discover that our God refuses to be out-given.

 
 
Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. 
Matthew 6:1
 
 
 

WHY WE GIVE

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live
open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived
self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.

All gifts shall be considered non-binding suggestions.Union Baptist Church is a 501(c)(3) so all donations are tax deductible. If you are a regular attender of UBC this donation will also be included on your annual contribution receipt delivered in January. Givers who are not regular attenders will also be sent contribution statements to be mailed no later than January for the prior year.

At this time, you can only donate to the General and Outreach funds online. If you wish to donate to the Fellowship Fund, please send that directly to the church in the form of a check or cash.

BUDGET & FINANCES

Knowing that God wants us to be faithful and generous givers, we counsel, guide and direct our church in the management of finances. Our finance committee and elders review and analyze monthly financial statements to direct the mission of our church, stewarding well the resources given to the church by our people.


Each year, an annual budget is presented to the church body for review, analysis, questions and approval. The body is also kept informed weekly of the status of our giving through a brief table in our weekly bulletin and also at quarterly business meetings through a more in-depth analysis regarding the status of our giving and expenditures in budgeted areas. The operating budget is fundamental to our accountability, transparency and integrity.

 

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

A qualified group of church members performs an annual audit of our finances - these are members who are not involved in our church staff or affiliated with our finance committee in any way.
