Offering & Donations

Offerings are donations given by church-goers to help pay for the costs of running the church. They are collected during every service. Offering plates are passed around later in the service. Giving a donation is your choice and can be any amount that is comfortable for you.

To receive a tax receipt, numbered envelopes are assigned to you for the year. Or you can sign up for PAR (pre-authorized remittance), which allows us to automatically withdraw your donation from your bank account every month.
