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: WE Ministries: Offerings for West End Ministries are used to support all the local, denominational and classical ministries within our church and also staff, administration and building expenses. In the current 2020 budget, $784,073 supports the operations and programs of WECRC and $199,036 is West End’s share of classical and denominational ministry shares. Offerings for West End Ministries totaled $54,392 for June, which is 66% of the monthly budget and brings us to 70% of the year to date budget. In order to meet the annual budget, we need to receive income of $147,457 each month for the remainder of the year.
Next week: Refugee Support: The offering next Sunday be for Refugee Support and will be shared equally between World Renew Refugee support and our local West End Refugee Fund. Covid-19 has brought a virtual standstill to final approval processes and refugees coming to their sponsoring communities. We do not have any information on when Mary Jal’s mother, daughter and baby may be able to come to Edmonton. Since 1979, World Renew and partnering churches have responded to needs of refugees from around the globe and helped resettle over 10,500 refugees to Canada. During the Covid-19 Pandemic World Renew is providing urgent humanitarian assistance to refugee communities around the world including food to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh; hygiene kits and vouchers to Syrian refugees in Lebanon so they can purchase food from local markets; cash cards to Venezuelen refugees in Columbia, all critical for many families who have been unable to work because of movement restrictions related to Covid-19.
