Giving is an act of worship. It is a spiritual sacrifice – and expression of gratitude. Everything we have and enjoy comes from God. The Bible instructs us to “let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). The motives that God desires for our giving are to express our love to Him, please Him, lay up treasures in heaven, and help reach the world for Jesus Christs.
We have made Automatic Giving and Online Giving available to you for your convenience. If the Lord leads you to give to Calgary Community Reformed Church, please refer to the Pre-Authorized Giving link to learn more about Automated Giving and Online Giving. If you are interested in pre-authorized automatic withdrawals from your account, please follow the steps in the brochure. This brochure also answers many questions you might have about giving and the security of giving though these methods.
In addition to these methods, we also include the option of Interac e-Transfer ® payments. Interac e-Transfer ® is a simple, convenient, and secure option to send money directly from one bank account to another. All you need is access to online or mobile banking through a participating financial institution, and you can send money to Calgary Community Reformed Church — without sharing any personal financial information. It is an alternative way to give, or pay registration fees for church activities you or your family are participating in.
