Giving Financial support for specific ministries

Giving for specific ministries

If you donate without specifying a special fund, your donation goes into our General Fund for our day-to-day operating expenses. If you would like your donation to go to a specific ministry, use your offering envelope or the note section in your e-transfer form to indicate the name of the ministry and how much of your offering should go to it.
