Christmas for Christ Offering for Missions

Sunday, December 12, 2021

Christmas for Christ is an Immanuel tradition that began in 1953 when Immanuel's leadership had a vision to truly celebrate Christmas by bringing the first and finest offering to Christ, doing something significant for missions and for the church. The tradition continues today with 100% of this offering supporting missions. this year's offering Sunday is December 12, but you may give to this offering throughout the month of December. Begin praying about your "first and finest" gift this Christmas. Our goal is $200,000 with funds distributed as follows:

World Missions $90,000
National Missions $45,000
State Missions $15,000
Regional Missions $12,000
Baptist Children's Home $9,000
Georgetown Campus $10,000
World Hunger $10,000
Mission Trip Scholarships $9,000

Why we give.

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances. The faithful giving of your first fruit allows Immanuel to fulfill its mission of leading people to Jesus and equipping disciples in their faith. Thank you.

Step by Step Account Set-Up


The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as noncash property for tax purposes which makes it one of the most tax-efficient ways to support Immanuel Baptist Church. When you give digital currency, you will receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of your gift and avoid paying the capital gains tax you’d normally incur by selling your cryptocurrency to make a cash gift.

When you give cryptocurrency, you will be asked to provide your information including an email address, and through this email you will automatically receive a tax receipt after completing your gift.


What is a non-cash gift? Anything that is not cash — stocks, real estate, business interests, retirement plans, estate gifts, gift cards, etc.
