"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Corinthians 9:7)
One of the ways we worship God is through giving.
Giving to the church is not "paying for services rendered." It is not a "fee." Giving to the church is an act of worship as you help fund the mission God has given us. This allows us to share God's love with people in Brampton and around the world. If that is your mindset, you will experience the reality that it is "more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35).
Thank you for your faithful financial support of Heart Lake Baptist Church as we serve together to live out our mission.
RECEIPTS FOR INCOME TAX PURPOSES
An annual receipt for income tax purposes is provided by Heart Lake Baptist Church each February for contributions made during the previous calendar year through the Sunday Offering, Pre-Authorized Withdrawal and online donations. Designated funds are only accepted for Board approved programs and fundraisers, and with the understanding that when a given need is met, the gift will be used where needed most. Gifts designated to non-approved programs will be considered part of church budget.
Ministry Program fees like Youth Retreat or Clubs/Bible Camp registration are payments for the service provided and will not qualify for a tax receipt.
WAYS TO GIVEGIVING ONLINE
Giving online is easy whether it is a one time gift or reoccurring gift. All transactions are secure and confidential by using Tithe.ly services.
GIVING BY MOBILE APP
Note: Tithe.ly is a online giving partner. Tithe.ly charges a 2.5% transaction fee to cover its costs, which is deducted from your donation before the funds are transferred to Heart Lake Baptist Church. Please consider the option to cover the transaction fee when giving online.
CASH OR CHEQUE
During Sunday morning Worship Service an offering plate will be passed around. If you are making a cash donation or cheque (made out to Heart Lake Baptist Church), you can use the mini envelopes available on the wall basket at the back of the sanctuary. Including your name and contact information will allow us to provide you with a tax receipt at year end.
PRE AUTHORIZED BANK WITHDRAWAL
You can download the form below to set up automatic monthly giving direct from your bank account. Return the completed form to the church office along with a VOID cheque. Our offering secretary will set this up for you. We encourage you to review your donations at least annually and make desired changes to the withdrawals. For changes please contact our offering secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
