Giving is Part of our Worship

As part of our weekly gatherings, we invite people to worship by giving of their finances.

You can donate to FGCC by using pre-numbered envelopes. If you don’t have them, you can also use the blank ones found in the pews. Make sure to include your name and donor number on the envelope. If you need pre-numbered envelopes, let us know by checking off the box in the bottom left corner of the envelope you get from the pew, or call the church office.

It is also possible to give through the Interac Machine at the Welcome Centre of our Attridge Site.

Online Giving

Click the “Give” button to setup an Online Giving Account. For receipting purposes, the first time you donate online you will need to enter all the information requested. If you select, “remember me” during your first donation, you will not need to enter your contact information for subsequent donations. (Note: Use a two letter abbreviation for the Province, for example SK for Saskatchewan)

Fundraisers

We occasionally do fundraisers for specific needs. These are promoted on our website and in our weekly gatherings. Fundraisers are approved by our church Council on a case by case basis. Forest Grove Community Church also supports work in many other parts of the world. This is part of our mission to “reach out from the river to the ends of the earth.”

Disbursement of funds is confined to Forest Grove Community Church approved programs and projects. Each contribution designated towards these approved programs or projects will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project is met, or cannot be completed for any reason, the remaining contributions will be used where needed most.
