Giving back to God from that which He provided for us is a foundational principle of Christianity and an important part of your relationship with Christ.

Online giving through Planning Center makes it easy to tithe at your convenience, look up your contribution records, and schedule future gifts.


Set up an account to create a login, make a one-time gift, or set up recurring giving using your checking account or credit card. 


Records of any gifts (tax-deductible only) can be found by accessing the My Giving tab in our new database system, Planning Center. Statements will be generated the first part of January; however, you can view your giving history and download a .csv file of your gifts at any time.

To do so, you can go to https://firstfamily.churchcenter.com/login or click the Access My Donor Profile button in one of your emailed receipts and:

  • Enter an email address or phone number to receive a code.
  • Enter the code and choose your name.
  • In the upper right, there should be a pulldown menu (it uses a little face emoji if there’s not a photo of you there) where you can choose “My Giving.”
  • Scroll down to the Donation History section and there is a button to the right that says “Download” and that should generate a .csv file listing any tax-deductible gifts you’ve made to-date.

NOTE: Planning Center does not automatically pair spouses on their giving. We have tried to join donor spouses as gifts have been processed, but if you see that yours is not being reported together and you would like it to be, please let us know.

If you have questions about your giving, please contact Jen Coleman in the FFC Ankeny church office at 515-965-8300 or  jcoleman@ffclife.com.
