Invitation to Stewardship:
You are invited to give a gift to the College of Churches of Christ (Disciples) in Canada this month.  Even a small gift of $25 from several persons will assure the College Management Team of your interest in and support of ministers and lay people seeking funding for initial or further religious education.  Because of the gifts of supporters, we recently completed the three-year seminary tuition for Awit Marcelino who will be ordained soon.  Awit attended Emmanuel College, graduate seminary in Victoria University of the University of Toronto. Please designate on your regular gift to Hillcrest the amount you will give to the College.  The Management Team meets two or three times a year and is presently composed of Ann Carruthers Clarke, Joseph Driskill, Elaine Lyons, Ann Stainton and Robert Steffer.  Regional Minister Jen Garbin also serves as an ex-officio member. Thank you for your generous support. 

We invite you to continue with your tithes and offering through one of three options. We know many of you are facing challenges due to COVID-19 and offer understanding for any decision you make.

  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
  3. Mail a cheque to Amando Osias, 29 Savona Drive, Etobicoke ON M8W 4T9

“Go Now in Peace”

Go now in peace. Never be afraid.
God will go with you each hour of ev’ry day.
Go now in faith, steadfast, strong and true.
Know He will guide you in all you do.
Go now in love, and show you believe.
Reach out to others so all the world can see.
God will be there, watching from above.
Go now in peace, in faith and in love.
