A request from the counters –
Since the offerings will be counted bi-weekly for the next while, it would be helpful if you combine your weekly offering into one envelope for the two weeks J This makes it much easier for those counting to get everything to the right place. Thank you!!!
The Faith Church Council has established a ‘Roof Fund’ to prepare for roofing expenses (flat roof on gym) this year. If you would like to contribute for that purpose, just write in ‘Roof Fund’ on the ‘Special’ line of your envelope. Thank you!!!!
The Faith Church Council has established the ‘Nicaragua Health Fund’, to offer an opportunity for those who wish to support our church’s servants in need of healing. If you would like to contribute for that purpose, just write in ‘Nicaragua Fund’ on the ‘Special’ line of your envelope. (This fund will be closed after June 30th)

If you do not have a hymnal at home, please email pastor (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can arrange a time for you to pick one up at church.
If you wish to continue the gifts of your offerings to the Lord through His congregation, please either mail them (a cheque would be wise) to Faith Lutheran Church, 247 Westmount Road East, Kitchener, Ontario N2M 4Z2 or drop them off in the mail box (pastor will be here each day to set them aside securely).
Lutheran Church–Canada has enhanced its website to include the option of giving directly to your home congregation. When you visit www.lutheranchurchcanada.ca and click on the “Support My Home Congregation” link on the home page, you will be directed to a secure, online giving portal. You may also use this link to go directly there https://lutheranchurch-canada.tng-secure.com
Once there, choose “Donate to My Congregation” under Featured Funds. Following the instructions, enter the amount of your donation/offering and select your congregation from the dropdown list. Enter the required information on the subsequent forms including your credit card information and complete your gift. Should you want to repeat this process weekly, you may find it easier to register once, although this is not necessary. You will receive an immediate donation receipt from LCC (not your congregation) and your congregation will receive a cumulative total once a month of all gifts it has received.
God grant us the favour of His Holy Name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and confidence in His baptismal promise and His forgiving Word as we joyfully confess Him and live in His Word.
