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 forthe Fuente De Vida Church in Ensenada, Mexico. 

We as a church continue to support Pastors Jesús & 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.

A message from Pastor Jesús: 

Life in Ensenada has been difficult. The brothers who work in the foreign owned clothing factories have been out of work since the shut-down. Many are really struggling to keep food on the table so Pastors have been making up food baskets for the ones in the greatest need. They have been drawing from the Benevolent Fund but the money doesn’t stretch as far as it used to. The price of everything has gone up nearly double. We wish to thank you for any help you can send, it will be much appreciated. Because of the disappointing news of the spring mission trip cancelation, Pastor Jesús asks: “When are you coming back to visit us?
