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:  Safe Church Ministry.  Abuse Awareness Sunday – September 27: Thank you so much for your ongoing efforts in abuse prevention, helping our communities respect and protect the value of each person.  It’s important for us to understand this topic that affects so many people and our congregational life. Abuse is NOT OK, but talking about abuse IS OK and can lead to better prevention and a better response. Please support the ongoing work of Safe Church Ministry by giving generously to the offering today. For giving options, please check out our website at www.westendcrc.ca/donate/.  Cheques and etransfers may be made out to WECRC – Safe Church Ministry.  There is a handbill on the bulletin stand called, “Power, how we will use it?”  We encourage you to take one home to read.  You can find more helpful resources at: https://www.crcna.org/SafeChurch/abuse-awareness.
