“Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:7-8, NRSV Version)
While we may not be having as much activity happening in our buildings during this time of pandemic, the life of the Church is continuing in our congregations. God takes and embraces us completely, with all our strengths and faults. And we are inspired by the ministry of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit to give of ourselves completely, so that we may love and serve the world that God loves into wholeness. This includes offerings and donations, so that we can support the outreach and ministries that the congregations provide within and beyond its people and walls.
One way that you can donate to the congregations is through Pre-Authorized Remittances (PAR), which is automatically withdrawn from your account, and given to the congregation of your choice or directly to the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of Canada. Find out more about PAR here.
If you feel inspired, you can also send an offering by mail to the communities of faith, or arrange a time or location to drop off your offering. You can find our mailing information and office numbers at our Contact Us page.
Any offering of time, talents, or materials is greatly appreciated, and reflects the giving nature of the One from whom all we are and have originates. We thank you for your offerings!
