As part of our weekly gatherings, we invite people to worship by giving of their finances.
You can donate to FGCC by using pre-numbered envelopes. If you don’t have them, you can also use the blank ones in the pews. Make sure to include your name and donor number on the envelope. If you need pre-numbered envelopes, let us know by checking off the box in the bottom left corner of the envelope you get from the pew, or call the church office.
It is also possible to give through the interac machine in our church lobby.
For on-line giving, donors will need to select Forest Grove Community Church as a recipient in the “bill payment” part of their on-line banking. The process is described below:
On-Line Giving banks that Forest Grove Community Church has made arrangements with:
- Bank of Montreal
- Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce
- Royal Bank of Canada
- TD Canada Trust
- Access their bank account on-line
- Select the bill payment option
- Select the “add payee” option
- Select FGCC as a payee
- Using their donor number as their identifier/account number, add Forest Grove Community Church to their list of payees
- Make a donation at any time and from any place where they had internet access
We occasionally do fundraisers for specific needs. These are promoted on our website and in our weekly gatherings. Fundraisers are approved by our church Council on a case by case basis. FGCC also supports work in many other parts of the world. This is part of our mission to “reach out from the river to the ends of the earth.”
Disbursement of funds is confined to FGCC approved programs and projects. Each contribution designated towards these approved programs or projects will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project is met, or cannot be completed for any reason, the remaining contributions will be used where needed most.
