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.

How to Give

This Weeks offering cause:  WE Ministries.  The gifts received today 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 $50,272 for July, which is 61% of the monthly budget and brings us to 69% of the year to date budget.  To meet the annual budget, we need to receive income of $117,981 each month for the remainder of the year.  With grateful hearts we are able to give back to God gifts He has given us so that we may do Kingdom work in His name

Next week:  Missions Support: 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 next week we will have the second of 3 offerings this year for our ‘outreach’ ministry with the Bridge Church.  Giving options are available on the “Give” tab of our church website: www.westendcrc.ca
