Alert: 2023 Year-End Giving

For contributions to be treated as part of your 2023 giving record, they must be received or postmarked by December 31.  The following guidelines will be applied in determining 2023 contributions:

  • Contributions can be placed in the offering boxes located in the back of the Sanctuary. Donations placed in the offering boxes by Sunday, December 31, will be applied as a 2023 contribution.
  • Contributions can be hand-delivered to the church during our office hours, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Fridays. Please note that because the church is closed Dec. 25-29, all hand-delivered contributions must be received by Friday, December 22.
  • Contributions (including IRA qualified charitable distribution gifts) mailed to Valley must be postmarked on or before December 31.
  • Online contributions must occur by 11:59 pm on December 31. Any online gifts processed at midnight or later on January 1 represent 2024 gifts.
  • Donated gifts of stock and/or other securities must be received into Valley’s brokerage account by 11:59 pm on December 31. (Please allow at least one week for processing).

If you write a check, make it payable to "Valley Community Baptist Church" and use the memo line to indicate the fund (examples: General Fund, World Outreach, Deacon Fund).

You can also send a check in the mail. Mark the proper fund on the memo line and send it to:
