Giving

Funds collected by the church are used for the following purposes:

  1. World Evangelism Fund

    The Church of the Nazarene missionaries provide education and medical programs in more than 100 countries. The missionary society also builds schools, hospitals, and churches around the world.

  2. Christian Education

    We support Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta which was founded by the Church of the Nazarene and the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church. This university, offering provincially accredited degree programs, is training the next generation of church leaders.

  3. District Ministries

    We belong to the Canada Pacific District of the Church of the Nazarene which unifies churches in British Columbia and the Yukon. The district provides support services, feeding, clothing, and enabling people on the street and the poor and hungry overseas, in addition to providing godly leadership to its member churches.

  4. For People in Need

    Sometimes, people less fortunate than ourselves come to the church for assistance. This can be the result of ill health, the loss of a job, or some tragedy like the death of a loved one or a house fire. Often the church will make small bequests out of our general revenue, but at other times when the need is greater, the church will take special offerings to help the needy.

  5. Local Ministries

    Apart from weekly worship services, prayer meetings, training sessions and counselling, our church also supports other local christian charities (Sanctuary, The Mustard Seed, and YWAM).

    • Worship Equipment Upgrade: As we prepare to restart our Sunday Morning services, we will be replacing/upgrading old equipment used to aid us in worship. In particular at this time, the sanctuary projector needs to be replaced. If you would like to support the purchase of the new projector, you can designate monies as “Worship” either through the offering envelopes or through the message on your Interac eTransfer.
  6. Our Building Fund

    We have been in our current facility for over 50 years and the building will hold comfortably 75 people (90 at a pinch) for worship and prayer. However our community has grown in that time and we have a vision to build a facility to serve 250 people. Plans are developing and the excitement is growing, but we won’t begin the project until the funds are in hand. For more information, please visit the building project page.
