The First Fund is where it’s needed most. Whether you attend Birmingham or Berkley First or worship in the sanctuary or the Christian Life Center, this is where your tithes and offerings go-supporting Christ’s church here and around the world. It’s the fund that allows us to reach people with the message of Jesus through our worship services, arts & music, events, children and student ministries, and global, national and local outreach.
A robust First Fund helps us energize and animate everything we do. Please give to this fund first, then consider donations to other ministries as “over and above” giving.
Make giving a part of your worship experience by placing a check or cash in the offering plate.

We encourage those who give regularly to set up a payment through your bank’s online bill paying service. This is a great option because it is low cost, and it is an easy way to make giving a regular practice in your life.
Planned gifts create opportunities for our donors, our congregation and, most importantly, the numerous beneficiaries of our generous giving. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many options from which you can choose.
