Giving is a natural human response to the blessings that we have received from God and from one another. It is also how we make happen the things that we value. In particular, our Cedar Park United community and its ministries exist because we support them in many ways.
People give to God’s work through our community in many ways. Some offer their experience and gifts of time, talent, expertise, and creativity. It’s these people who help to provide programming for KidZone, Social Justice, Christian growing and learning programmes, administration, volunteers for special events, or through leadership on the Church Board.
Financial gifts are also vitally important to maintain the health of our community and its ministries. Cedar Park United is totally self funding and is dependent upon the financial support of individuals and families. Giving can be done through weekly offering envelopes which are collected each week during worship, through Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR), or through cheques. All gifts made directly to the church are tax-deductible. We also receive bequests and special gifts to support particular projects. Giving is also possible by using the links on this site to Amazon.ca (below) and SheetMusicPlus (on the Music Ministry page). The church receives a commission on sales made through these links. Shopping with gift cards purchased through Fundscrip, sold during coffee after worship, also provides commission revenue to the church.
Giving allows us to empower the work that we believe in, and to support work in places where we cannot be physically.
