Thank you for your financial contribution to James Bay United Church.
James Bay United Church is committed to stepping out into the neighbourhood. By actively fostering relationships with people and organizations that make up James Bay, we are giving ourselves to supporting and nurturing the health and vitality of the neighbourhood.
The wonder is that the more we do so, the more we are experiencing renewed vitality within the life of our congregation. It's a taste of what is spoken by the prophet/ poet Isaiah ...
Is this not the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of injustice …
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover them,
and not to hide yourself from your own kin?
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up quickly (Isaiah 58: 6-8)
There are many ways to be part of this all around growing goodness. Your financial contribution is one of those ways. Thank you for considering such a gift to James Bay United Church.*
How do I make a donation?
Of all the possibilities available, first off we suggest Pre-Authorized Remittance …aka PAR. You decide on an amount that each month would be automatically transferred from your bank account.
For those who want to have something to put on the offering plate during the service, there are “I give by PAR” cards available to you as you enter the sanctuary, as an expression of your gift.
Donating by PAR is a benefit to the church from a budgeting and cash flow point of view, knowing ahead of time what funds can be expected. It’s a benefit to the giver knowing that your offering is “in hand” even when you may be out of town. You can download a PAR application form here or pick one up at the church (ask a greeter or stop by mid week at the office).
Cash or Cheque
Envelopes are in the pews for visitors or for anyone making special donations. Be sure to note your name and address if you wish a tax receipt. You may also request personalized envelopes -- one for each week of the year, from Vanya in the church office.
