“It is more blessed to give than to receive. ”
At each service, we collect tithes and offerings, because God calls us to in Malachi 3:10. We believe giving is a Next Step and a way we can be obedient to the God that has been generous to us!

In addition, the HELPS Ministry of Alice Drive Baptist Church continues to serve people in the local community with needs they cannot accomplish (wheelchair ramps, yard work, etc.).
VBS 2023 was SPECTACULAR! So many kids and volunteers took next steps toward Jesus.
On average, we had over 700 each night between Loring Mill and Pocalla campuses.
When you give, you help provide the many resources needed to pull off this event, which changes kids and volunteers because of VBS’s impact on their lives!
We always look forward to VBS and helping as many kids as possible take a next step toward Jesus.
Because you give our children and students are meeting Jesus. Because you give our future generations are learning truth that can be shared for generations to come.

Other Avenues of Stewardship
Recurring Automated Gifts
Online recurring gifts are one of the best ways to practice tithing. You determine the amount, frequency, and date. Everything else is automated. When you click give online, you will be asked if you want to give once or multiple times (recurring.)
Stocks, Bonds, and Other Securities
Alice Drive Baptist Church can accept donations of non-cash assets. Did you know that in most situations, a direct gift of stock has greater value for the donor as a tax deduction than if the donor sold the stock and gave the proceeds? The pre-tax value of a direct stock gift is also more valuable to the church. Stock gifts are a win-win for both the donor and the church. For more information and assistance with non-cash giving, please contact Perry Moses at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)
A donor-advised fund is a simple, flexible, and tax-efficient way to give to your favorite charities, including your church. Donor-advised funds are one of the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicles in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Your financial planner, attorney, or tax advisor and help you set up a DAF.
IRA Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD)
A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from an individual’s IRA custodian account, payable to a qualified charity. In addition to the benefits of giving to charity, a QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. For those 73 and older, QCDs can be counted toward meeting your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year if certain requirements are met.
Gifts of Real Estate / Businesses
Real property and privately held business interests may be an option to donate to the church. First, you potentially eliminate the capital gains tax you would incur if you sold the interest yourself and donated the proceeds, which may increase the amount available for charity by up to 20%. Second, you may claim a fair market value charitable deduction for the tax year in which the gift is made and may choose to pass on those savings in the form of more giving.
Legacy Giving (Wills / Trusts)
Estate planning is important to your family. It provides instructions for handling your affairs and reduces confusion at a difficult time. It also offers an opportunity for you to share your Christian faith and your desires for the futures of your loved ones. Legacy gifts provide income for ministries, giving you the satisfaction of knowing you can continue supporting ministries well beyond your lifetime.
