Contributions and Giving to the Lord’s Work at Denton Bible Church
“. . . According to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord. . . ”
2 Corinthians 8:3
It is common for people to ask how to give at Denton Bible Church, because we do not pass an offering plate. We believe that your financial participation in the church is between you and God, and therefore do not pressure you to give by passing the plate. Instead, we have discretely placed offering boxes on the wall by each exit door in which you may place your tithes and offerings.
If you are attending Denton Bible at one of the main Worship services on Sunday, you may place your offerings in one of the offering boxes. You may place either cash or checks in any one of the offering boxes, as offerings are collected and counted on a regular basis, and contributions are recorded by Administration.
If you would like to mail your contribution to the Church please address your envelope to:
Denton Bible Church
2300 E. University Drive
Denton, Texas 76209
If you utilize an on-line bill pay service at your local Bank you may also use the above address.
If you are making a designated contribution to the Building Fund or some other elder approved fund, please ensure that you note in the memo section of the check that it is to be designated for this purpose.
Charitable Contribution FAQ’s
I want to give cash anonymously to the church and deduct it on my tax return. Can I do that?
You are certainly welcome to give an anonymous cash gift to Denton Bible Church. However, the Internal Revenue Service has recently changed the guidelines regarding cash contributions. To qualify as a charitable contribution, cash must be given in an envelope labeled with the name of the donor and be posted on a giving statement by the church.
I have been giving each Sunday, but did not receive a statement for my taxes. Why?
First, we thank you for your faithful giving! Having said that, The Internal Revenue Service requires you to have a statement if your charitable contributions total $250.00 or more in a given day. For gifts of less than that, the IRS will accept your canceled check as documentation of your gift. As a stewardship issue, Denton Bible Church only sends statements to those donors that are required by law to have them.
If you or your CPA feel that you would like to have a statement, please email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
