For your convenience, we provide several different ways for you to give.
Your generosity makes a difference
We have the privilege of partnering with God’s work in the world by using our gifts and resources through the local church, the bridge. How might you Live to Give and participate in God’s plan for the world? We exist to connect with God, each other and our world and we would love for you to join us in our mission. Together, we can make a bigger impact than on our own. When you give to the bridge, your giving goes directly to support our mission (locally and globally), our ministries, and our mortgage. Together we are the body of Christ. Let’s Live to Give.

During any of our weekly services, use an offering envelope from the chair pockets in the auditorium, place your cash and/or cheque inside, and put it in the offering boxes located at the back of the auditorium.
Be sure to clearly write your full name and mailing address on the envelope so that a tax receipt can be mailed to you. You may visit our Connection Centre or contact the church office to request your own box of date-stamped offering envelopes with a personalized giving number.
You may also donate using your debit or Visa debit card. A debit machine and offering envelopes to record your giving is conveniently located in the atrium.
