Ways to Give
You can give in a variety of ways that are convenient and secure. Income Tax receipts are provided annually by the end of February for all qualified donations given to and through the church from the previous year.
Your donation will be applied to the General Fund unless you give us instruction to apply it differently*. Please see our "Designated Giving Policy" below.
Through your faithfulness, you help us fulfill our mission to connect with God, connect with Each Other, and to Our Community.
WAYS TO GIVE :

2) Sunday Services: We have offering envelopes available at the Info Desk for your convenience and privacy. Simply place your cash or cheque in the envelope and put your offering number on it before placing it in the offering plate. If you don't have a number yet, please write your full name and address on the envelope and contact the church office for a number for the future.
3) Debit: There is a debit machine station located to the right of the main doors as you exit the lobby. Please follow the instructions posted on the wall.
