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.
TODAY: Mission Support – the Bridge. The call to ‘make disciples of all nations’ is not just about places further away; it begins where we are. Last Sunday we received video greetings and an update from Bridge pastor, Ryan Pedde. Our partnership with the Bridge, begun about two years ago, seeks to offer mutual encouragement and support. Part of that includes financial support and today we hold the last of our three regular offering this year for our ‘outreach’ ministry with the Bridge. We look forward to partnering with them in our Christmas Project with World Renew. We pray that God will richly bless this growing ministry in Fort Saskatchewan.
NEXT WEEK: West End Ministries. Our monthly offering for West End Ministries is used to cover day-to-day expenses of the church, fund the various ministries at West End, cover the salaries of staff, and contributes to the ministry pledges that we are committed to as members of CRC Denomination. Offerings may be placed in the baskets at the sanctuary exits, in our offering box, or given online at www.westendcrc.ca/donate. May God continue to lead us in faithful giving back to Him.
World Renew Gift Catalogue Project: We are excited to kick off the World Renew – WECRC and the Bridge Church Gift Catalogue Fundraising Project this week! Our goal is to raise $15,600 that will be used to send 200 Friendship packs of a goat and four chickens around the world. You can make your donation directly at: https://worldrenew.ca/West-End-Bridge. You can also bring it to the church office or put it in an offering basket. Cheques should include WECRC – with WR Friendship Pack on the memo line. Cash should be in an envelope marked Friendship pack and include your name. Purchase a Friendship Pack for $78, or give a smaller gift toward that goal, and you will help bring income, nutrition, and better quality of life to families around the world.
