Petaluma Valley Baptist Church is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt religious non-profit organization. Our support comes from people who tithe (give 10% of what they earn back to God) and from the free-will offerings of attendees and supporters. It's normal for anyone who calls PVBC "home" to support the church with their time, talent, and treasure. We do not have a few individuals who fund everything. We are an independent church—responsible to resource our part of God's mission on our own.
While donations can be mailed to the church or dropped into an offering plate during Sunday worship, we also provide a safe and secure way for you to give online. Thank you for your faithfulness and your partnership with us in the gospel!
"The point is this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, 'He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.' He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God."
2 Corinthians 9:6-11
