Things sure have changed since many of us were kids growing up in the church. It still amazes me that I can grab my phone and pay for things without ever pulling out cash, a credit card or checkbook. However, during a season like we are in, with the church unable to gather in person, it is a blessing that we can still model faithfulness to God’s kingdom through online giving. Here are a few ways during this season you can continue to tithe here at BBC.
Tithe using Church Center App.
The Church Center app is available to download onto your iOS or Android device, so it is a fast, portable and secure way to give to our ministry. If you would rather give online from your computer or laptop there is also a Church Center website for the online giving that you can access at www.brenhambiblechurch.org/givenow
With many people traveling or out sick during normal seasons of life it is easy to accidentally miss giving to the church. By setting up a recurring tithe schedule you help our church minister responsibly since it enables us to have a more stable budget from month to month. During a season where we are forced to maintain greater distance because of Covid-19, online giving becomes the prefered method since it eliminates money changing hands here at the church.
The benefit of using the app is that it safely and securely stores your information for either credit / debit card transactions or it can store information for ACH bank transfer. At BBC we prefer if you would use the bank transfer option since it is a less expensive option to make your tithe to the church. If you use a credit or debit card to donate to the church there is a 2.2% processing fee for the total amount that is being given. For large gifts, that can add up! However, to make an ACH bank transfer from your savings or checking account to the church it only costs $0.25 per transaction. That is a huge savings over the credit/debit card transaction fee and very reasonable expense for the service it provides to us.

Tithe by sending in your check to our PO Box.
If you would prefer to mail in your check or have your bank send it to us through a bill pay option, you can certainly do that as well. Some banks offer this as a free service for your checking account, but you will need to confirm that with your bank. If you do send in your tithe, we DO NOT receive mail at our physical address. So please be sure to send it to:
Brenham Bible Church
PO Box 658
Brenham, TX 77834
Drop off your tithe at the church
During normal seasons of ministry, tithing in person at BBC is a great option – especially if you have children or grandchildren with you. As you demonstrate faithfulness through giving, it is a blessing to allow young eyes to observe and learn through your example. We have tithe boxes at the church on Sunday and if you come by during the week just call in advance to make sure we have staff on-site to meet you.
We are grateful that God is working in your life to lead you into faithful service through giving time, talent, and treasure here at BBC. If you have any further questions regarding our giving options please reach out to Misti Perez at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be glad to help you or point you in the right direction as you serve the Lord with us!
