At SJR we have three ways that you may contribute financially to the life and work of our church.
1. Our Weekly Offering
Each week near the end of our Worship Service there is an opportunity to place cash or a cheque on the offering plate. These may be placed loose or in your own church envelope. Tax receipts will be issued for contributions in envelopes that identify the giver. When not using church envelopes, your name and address are required to accompany your contribution if you wish to receive a tax receipt.
If you wish to receive your own envelopes email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. PAR – Pre-Authorized Remittance
Pre-Authorized Remittance, or PAR, allows you to support your church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account.
The United Church administers the program following the giver’s wishes—for example, you might give X amount for local church expenses and X amount for Mission & Service.
Besides being convenient, using PAR for your offering ensures regular monthly givings to help your church’s ministry even when you are away. You will be providing a dependable flow of contributions, which increases the church’s overall financial stability. Why not participate in PAR?
On-Line Giving. Whether you want to give once or give monthly, with CanadaHelps you can donate online to SJR. You can give in tribute or in memory. You can give right from your computer, tablet or smart phone. And, you’ll always receive a charitable tax receipt.
