We Embrace Extravagant Generosity

Generosity involves a stewardship of all that we are and have. We therefore commit to using our gifts of time, money, skills—our whole lives—in service to God and those around us.

What Happens to The Money We Give?
God provides for the ministry of Bidwell through your tithes and offerings.  We honor your gifts with faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Bidwell remains beyond reproach. 


CASH / CHECK: You can either send a check through the mail to the church (mailing address: 208 W. 1st Street, Chico, CA 95928), place it in the offering plate on Sundays, or bring it by the church office during business hours (101 Salem Street, Suite 200, Mon-Fri, 9:00am-5:00pm). We have envelopes in the pews on Sundays for cash gifts.
