donating at RIVERSIDE crc

We encourage you to donate via e-transfer (to, by cheque,  or to donate directly to a specific ministry online if possible.

1st Bag (B) – CHURCH BUDGET – This offering is used to cover the day-to-day expenses of the church, church ministries, pastor’s salary, and ministry shares that we committed to as members of the CRC denomination.

2nd Bag – SPECIFIC MINISTRY – This offering is for a specific ministry the church has committed to support. It changes each week and is described weekly in the bulletin.

Cheques written and money e-transferred will be issued a tax receipt at the end of the year.

Vouchers are available for purchase in smaller amounts ($2/$5). They are small pieces of paper that represent the amount of money written on them, and can be placed in either offering bag. They have the same value as money. Tax receipts are issued for voucher purchases. Please see a deacon for more information or to purchase vouchers.

All supported ministries are linked to their websites so you can find out more about them.

Benevolent Fund: benevolence (kindness, compassion, generosity) is a quality of our life in Christ and not merely a matter of financial assistance. This fund has no budget for either income or expenses. It is designated for giving and is overseen by the Deacons, who assess needs, promote stewardship and hospitality, collect and disburse resources for benevolence and develop programs of assistance.
