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 the office to ask for your own set of envelopes and/or your own donor number if you don’t already have one!
Pre-Authorized Debit Program
We are excited to have this voluntary program where your donations are automatically withdrawn from your bank account and sent to Bethel at certain times of the month.
How To Sign Up | Simply fill in a “Pre-Authorized Debit Agreement” form and hand it in along with a void cheque from the account you’ll be using. If you will be donating two different amounts on the two dates per month, please fill in one form for each date.
Change of Information | If any of your information changes please simply contact the office as soon as possible with the new information.
Supplementary Request | You can submit a “Supplementary Pre-Authorized Debit Request” form for a one-time donation to the program of your choice. Of course, in those cases you are also still free to simply hand in a separate cheque with the program indicated on the memo line.
Cancellation | If at any time you wish to opt out of the program you are free to do so. Simply hand in a “Pre-Authorized Cancellation Debit Request” form. Please note that it may take up to one month for the cancellation to be processed. Once your request has been approved you will receive an email to confirm.
