Offerings, Tithing & Budget Collections at Bethel: 

Your Deacons encourage each member and family to continue giving regularly, so our church can continue to financially support the causes that are important to our church family. We highly encourage offerings to be mailed and send to: Bethel Christian Reformed Church c/o Treasurer August Luymes 5704 51 Ave Lacombe, AB, T4L 1K8. Cheques should be made out to Bethel Christian Reformed Church and the cause noted on the memo line, if more than one offering is included please note that on the memo line or enclose a note. "Bethel Bucks" may also be mailed, but please enclose a note that mentions the cause for which the notes are to be used. Currently E-Transfers cannot be accepted, we apologize for the inconvenience. The Deacons are working hard to have this feature up and running as soon as possible.

Bethel now accepts donations through the GIVE function on the Bridge App.The GIVE function currently allows for credit card donations, and will soon support debit and recurring giving to a list of the many worthy causes that Bethel supports regularly. Please Note: Upon making a donation, a receipt will be issued immediately by email. Please hold onto these for tax purposes. They will NOT be reissued at the end of the year.

Today’s offering 

is for the Lacombe Community Refugee Effort Khadija, Zein, Eddin and her children still need financial support until the end of November. Her ex-husband, the father of her children, was killed in a mass shooting 3 weeks ago. The children had regular phone visits with him and are very sad with his loss. The Lacombe Community Refugee Effort pays for all their expenses on a budgeted basis. She is often lonely and depressed partly because she is unable to attend English classes and has difficulty in helping her children with their school work. The committee continues to encourage and provide emotional support. The Al Omar family has been financially on their own for the last 3 years. We still keep up to date with them giving them encouragement as they struggle with health issues and not being able to attend English classes.

Sunday, May 24th 

our offering will be for the Fuente De Vida Church in Ensenada, Mexico. We as a church continue to support Pastors Jes’us & Evelia from the Fuente de Vida Church. We have sent many mission teams there to help build the church and homes in the colonia nearby.
