Giving to NSCBC

When giving to NSCBC there are several different funds you can choose to give to. Below you will find a brief explanation of the main funds.
  • General Fund: Giving to the General Fund is the main way to support the mission of NSCBC. The general fund is used to support our annual budgeted ministries and funds areas like our worship, discipleship, local outreach, world missions, and much more! If giving regularly to NSCBC we encourage you to give to the general fund.
  • Missions Fund: The Missions Fund is used to supply resources to NSCBC World Partners, short term missions projects, individuals on mission locally and globally, and organizations sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. Gifts from the Missions Fund tend to be for one-off projects and initiatives, while long term support for missions locally and globally happens through our general fund.
  • Gospel Initiatives Fund: The purpose of the Gospel Initiatives Fund is to help the church grow in all aspects of its local and global gospel outreach. The use of these funds is to focus on developing outreach initiatives in preference over sustaining ongoing outreach ministries which is instead funded through the General Fund. Projects like church planting on the North Shore, new neighborhood outreach ideas from congregation members, or new missions initiatives from world partners are all funded through the Gospel Initiatives Fund.
  • Other Funds: Throughout the year we have opportunities to give in other ways to other special collections. If ever you would like more details about the purpose of any church fund or collection you can contact the church office to find out more.
As always, if you have any questions about giving at NSCBC, please feel free to email our bookkeepers.
