At WECRC we believe Christians are called to be generous with the resources God has entrusted to us. We are inspired to give freely of ourselves, our time, our talents and our treasures as the visible expression of our love for God and each other.During this period of COVID-19 we encourage you to continue tithing and steady giving, recognizing that some of you will be hard hit financially in this difficult time. May God provide.
This Weeks offering cause: Chaplaincy and Care Ministry. Chaplaincy and Care Ministry: provides pastoral ministry in specialized settings to people who are hurting or in crisis, uprooted or dislocated. Through the presence of chaplains, the settings in which they minister become surprising places of grace. Chaplains are exceptional, well-trained ministers of the Word or commissioned pastors who serve in specialized ministries beyond the walls of the church. They are trained, called and ordained by the church, and sent by Jesus Christ to provide spiritual care to people in pain or spiritual distress. We give thanks for the care they provide during the Covid 19 pandemic.
Next week: The Bridge Church. The call to ‘make disciples of all nations’ is not just about places further away, it begins where we are. Last summer we were introduced to the Bridge Church, a church plant of our Classis (grouping of CRC churches in north AB) in Fort Saskatchewan. Since then we have formed a partnership with the Bridge that goes both ways in terms of encouragement and support. Part of that includes financial support and today we will have the last offering this year for our ‘outreach’ ministry with the Bridge. https://www.bridgechurch.ca/ Giving options are available on the “Give” tab of our church website: www.westendcrc.ca.
World Renew: Gift Catalogue. World Renew’s Gift Catalog offers many meaningful choices by which we can share God’s love around the globe. Look for the gift catalogue in the October Banner, on the stand at church with today’s bulletin or online at https://worldrenew.ca/gift-catalog. Browse the catalogue and choose from a large selection of possibilities. Perhaps you would like to order chickens or ducks for all your kids or grandkids. You might choose to provide clean drinking and hand-washing water for an entire family – by giving the family-sized water filter that a rural family needs in order to thrive. This simple gift can free a mother or her daughter from spending hours a day fetching clean water for the family from a far-away well. Or, just for fun, maybe your grandpa would like to receive a gift of care in the form of a goat! Not only is this a source of milk for children at risk of malnutrition, goats will also provide fertilizer for kitchen gardens, providing nutritious food for an entire family. Order forms available in the catalogue or online. Gift cards are available upon request. Thanks for your participation. The Deacons.
