Tithing is our foundation of giving as Christ followers.
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. We financially give the first fruits of our labor to God. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for God and others.
At HBIC, taking action to give is simple. Simply choose your favorite way to give from the options below. For more information about HBIC’s expanding giving options, please also take a moment to read our easyTithe introduction.
During one of our worship services, simply place your gift in one of the offering plates. If you like, you can use one of the giving envelopes available at the Welcome Center in the Lobby.
You can personally or have your bank mail your contribution to:
Harrisburg BIC Church
2217 Derry Street
Harrisburg, PA 17104
Completed forms can be given to David Derr, Assistant Treasurer, or Lynda Gephart, Pastor of Congregational Life.
To give online, begin by going to the church’s website. In the upper right hand corner of the home page, click on the “Give” link. From there, simply follow the instructions below.

Future Text Donations
If you only text a monetary value to the HBIC’s designated number (717-303-5153), the funds are attributed to HBIC’s General Fund (Ex: $100)
If you text the amount + fund name – the funds will be attributed to that specific fund (Ex: $50 Building Principal or $50 Missions)
If the fund name you texted does not match an existing fund, you will receive a message with a list of fund names for you to choose from.
If you text “Funds”, you will receive a reply text including a list of the fund names that you can donate to.
If you text “Help”, you will receive a reply text that states: “To give, enter the amount you want to give, such as 100. You can also give to a specific fund by typing it after your amount, such as 100 building fund”.
If you text “Reset”, you will receive a reply text that states: “Saved card information successfully removed. Please register your card information again when making your next gift by texting an amount to this number.”
