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 ministry support for Resonate Global Missions. When the Holy Spirit came in fire and wind, the disciples began speaking in tongues. This first gift of the Spirit helps God’s people cross cultural barriers and bring the good news to everyone. What a beautiful picture of the Spirit’s power and God’s plan for mission. “The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off.” preaches Peter. Praise God for these promises that ring out from every tongue!

· The promise that Jesus is risen from the dead.

· The promise that we will receive the Holy Spirit.

· The promise that we will be God’s witnesses to the ends of the earth.

With words from Psalm 16, Peter tells the crowds that Jesus is the promised Saviour, who shoes the paths of life. That’s what these promised do for us: they direct us to live our lives on mission for Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Resonate Global Mission is privileged to go with you on this mission. Whether your path leads you through your own neighbourhood or to “those who are far off,” may the Spirit go with you into every area of life and equip you for God’s redeeming work.

Engaging People, Embracing Christ.

Sunday, June 14th 

our offering will be for Evergreen Christian Reformed Church, Fort McMurray, AB. The situation in Fort McMurray is improving as the water levels have gone down and the community is starting to assess and figure out what is next. The Evergreen CRC building was unaffected and the members that did have residences affected are doing ok. At this time it is a great opportunity for the Evergreen church to support the community of Fort McMurray and we would like to help them. Our collection will help for the months ahead. Please pray for the people of Evergreen church and their community.
