Offerings during the morning worship service are for New West Church and local ministries as well as denominational ministries. There may be a designated special cause identified as a “second collection”. At some point during each worship service an offering bag will be passed around the congregation. Please place your offerings into the bag, using your current envelopes if you have them. There are also envelopes in the pew if you are a guest or forgot yours at home. Cheques should be made out to the New Westminster CRC and should indicate the ministry you are donating to.
There is only one offering bag being distributed for the causes above so please mark your envelope clearly. Undesignated offerings will go towards New West Church and its various ministries. All donations dollars and loose change will be applied to the second cause. Further descriptions of each ministry are in our bulletin each Sunday.
If you are a visitor to our church, please don’t feel obligated to give an offering. We are simply happy that you have joined us.
