As apprentices of Christ, our vision is to be “Responding to the Heart of God; Transforming the Heart of the City, the Nation and the World.”
One of the many ways the Bible tells us that we do this is by striving to become good stewards of all that God has given us, both of our talents and financial resources. Even as King David praised God for Israel’s generous gifts for a new temple (to be built by his son Solomon), he acknowledged God’s sovereignty in that giving when he said, “Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.” (1 Chronicles 29:11)

During our Sunday morning Worship Services there is an opportunity to bless Bethel by placing gifts of cash or cheques in the offering plate that is passed through the pews. (If you are a guest or new to Bethel, you are under no obligation to give!) You are encouraged to use the blue offering envelopes found in the pew so that your gifts can be tracked and a donation receipt issued at the end of the year. For easier tracking, please contact keri[at]bethelkingston.com to request for your own set of envelopes and/or your own donor number if you don’t already have one!
This an easy and convenient program where your recurring monthly or bi-monthly donation is automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the 1st and/or 16th day of each month. Donations are recorded by Bethel and a tax receipt issued at the end of the year (along with any offerings giving through the Sunday offering plate.)
