Methods of Offering

Offering is a Christian's responsibility. We are able to continue serving you and serving our community through your generosity. Brothers and sisters can offer via:

  1. E-Transfer 

  2. Mailing in cheques to the church office (Please do not send cash)​​

Pastoral Caring and Shepherding

While all on-site gatherings are suspended during this period where all of us are engaged in combating the pandemic, pastoral shepherding continues.  Brothers and sisters, if you have any caring needs and/or prayer requests, feel free to contact any of our pastors in their respective divisions. We will do our best to render as much assistance and support we can.

Also, the church would like to recommend the following for your family's safety and well-being:

  1. If you or a family member exhibit any symptoms (cold, fever, cough, difficulty breathing, etc.), please contact your family physician immediately, or call Telehealth Ontario Hotline at                1-866-797-0000.

  2. If you or a family member have just returned from outside of Canada, or if you have out-of- country family, friends, or relatives, who have recently arrived to Canada, with you, please stay with your loved ones at home, and self-quarantine for 14 days.

  3. Please cancel all non-essential travel outside of Canada.

  4. Please regularly use water and soap or hand sanitizer with a high alcohol level to sanitize your hands.

  5. When coughing or sneezing, please cover your mouth and nose with your arm. Wear a mask if necessary.

  6. Smile, nod, or wave to greet one another; refrain from shaking hands.

  7. Earnestly pray for the Lord's mercy that the spread of the disease will be controlled; may the Lord heal the afflicted to have a full recovery, and may the Lord help those in times of trouble to overcome.

 

(These preventative measures are subject to change as the Canadian Government updates their recommendations. Please refer to the church's websites for the latest updates.)
