Today we receive the Easter special offering. Your support of the Easter special offering sustains most of our general ministries through the Disciples Mission Fund in crucial ways. These are difficult times for everyone. We ask that you give as you are able and together we will be stronger.

Below are two options on how you can continue with your tithes and offering:

  1. Online through our page on Canada Helps
  2. Mail a cheque to Hillcrest Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 2 Vaughan Road, Toronto, ON M6G 2N1

We know many of you are being hurt by the rapidly changing economic circumstances COVID-19 is creating and offer understanding for any decision you make.
