Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce. – Proverbs 3:9
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
…so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. – Matthew 6:4
Giving is an Act of Worship
We want to contribute cheerfully, generously and regularly. Gifts will support ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.
May our giving not end with the money, but may we also volunteer our talents and time, as we use the gifts God has given each of us for the common good.

We comply with Canadian Revenue Agency requirements. A Treasurer, elected by the congregation supervises the church’s finances and reviews the work of our external bookkeeper. The Board of Directors regularly receives and reviews financial reports. A copy of the Annual Report is available from the Treasurer. Please contact the church office at 359-1450 or by email .
How to Give
- Place your gifts in an offering basket during any worship service or mail to the FBC Regina Church Office. Offering envelopes are in the holder in the back of all pews. Or contact the church office for a year’s supply of envelopes.
- Establish a Pre-authorized Remittance (PAR) Plan. This will automatically transfer funds from your account into the FBC Regina account on a regular basis. Using PAR, your offering ensures regular monthly givings to help our church’s ministry even when you are away. You will be providing a dependable flow of contributions, which increases the church’s overall financial stability.
