Supporting Our Work
You can help support our work financially if you are able.
Pre-authorized remittance (PAR) is an easy way to contribute to the life and work of our church on a regular basis. You pay your mortgage, hydro, telephone, etc, by direct withdrawal from your bank account, and doesn't that beat writing all those cheques each month? You may do exactly the same with your givings.
Simply fill out an application form (available at the newcomers' table and the pamphlet rack, attach a void cheque, submit it to our secretary Pat Will before the 10th of the month, and you can be on PAR for that month. The withdrawal is made from your account on 15th of each month.
This fundraiser helps you with your groceries and shopping. Gift cards in various denominations are available for sale every week after church, and the more of us who use them, the larger the benefit to the church. It costs you nothing, yet earns us money. All proceeds go to church funds.
Join with others and help us in what we do.
