Welcome to Givhans Baptist Church!

We are so happy that you have joined us!

Merle’s Kids (Christmas Gifts)

During the holidays, Givhans collects new toys for Christmas to give to children in need, in addition to specific “wish list” items.

Givhans takes requests for children in need to be added to the “Angel Tree”.

Paper Angel Ornaments are added to the tree with a list of sizes and items requested for the child. When selecting an Angel from the tree, the sponsor is not required to purchase all items on the list. They can select to pick one or more items listed.  Sponsors can share an angel and get multiple items for the child.

Donations may be given without taking an Angel from the tree.


To submit a child’s name to the “Angel Tree” or for more information, please contact Merle Bridge or the Givhans Baptist Church office.


Lottie Moon Christmas Offerings are being collected all month to support missionaries.

Well over 100 years ago, a single missionary named Lottie Moon, while serving in China, began writing letters challenging the American church to send and support more missionaries to go there and take the gospel to the 472 million Chinese in her day. She also shared the urgent need for more workers and for Southern Baptists to support them through prayer and giving. She gave herself completely to God, helping lay the foundation of what would become the modern Chinese church. Lottie Moon died at age 72—sick and in declining health after decades of ministering to the Chinese.

But her legacy lives on. After her death on the field, her challenge was heeded in the formalization of an offering in her name. Her life is a reminder of why we must give to send and support missionaries serving among unreached peoples in unreached places.

As you know, the greatest source of funding for the overseas Great Commission work of Southern Baptists is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. This year’s theme is Every Church. Every Nation. Our offering goal is $160 million, and your missionaries need your help. I believe every church—and every church member—has a critical role to play in bringing the gospel to the world. Your financial gifts through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering enable our International Mission Board missionaries to take the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference, because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation. At www.imb.org/lmco, you can find links to resources such as videos, a social media kit, and other information that you can use to inspire others to give. I believe our churches will respond.
