Giving

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)

Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.org!

You can donate using credit card, debit/Interac, or PayPal by clicking on the DONATE NOW icon (below).  For these donations, we issue only an acknowledgement, but CanadaHelps issues an official CRA income tax receipt for the full amount of the donation and retains a fee from its disbursement to us.  Because of this disbursement fee, we encourage you to consider one of the other options if you are making regular donations.

Through the CanadaHelps portal, you can only give to:

  1. the General Fund,
  2. the Benevolent Fund or
  3. the Capital Fund.

All other donation designations are not recognized and will be assigned to the General Fund.

Please select the appropriate fund from the CanadaHelps menu.

Guest Offering Envelopes

Guest offering envelopes for cash or cheque donations are available in the Main Entrance Hallway (on the slant wall rack near the Church office or a number of other locations around the Church).

There are 3 types of offering envelopes available:
1) a blue-edged envelope for General Fund donations;
2) a beige paper envelope for Benevolent Fund donations; and
3) a white paper envelope for Capital Fund donations.

General EnvelopeBenevolent EnvelopeCapital Envelope

On these envelopes, you are asked to print your name, address, telephone number and the donation amount so that the Church’s Envelope Secretary can identify you.
After completing the information on the offering envelope and placing your donation in the envelope, place the offering envelope on the offering plate at the appropriate time in the worship service.


Numbered Personalized Offering Envelopes


If you are a regular donor, we encourage you to request a box of numbered personalized offering envelopes from the Church’s Envelope Secretary. You will provide your name, address, telephone number and other information as part of your request for your numbered offering envelopes. These envelopes are pre-numbered with a number that belongs only to you and, for confidentiality, is known only to the Envelope Secretary.

You just have to write the amount in the appropriate location (but no name) on the envelope and place your donation in the envelope. Place the offering envelope on the offering plate at the appropriate time in the worship service.
