Invitation to Stewardship:
Today and next week we will be receiving the Pentecost Special Offering. Pentecost is an annual celebration for Christian churches throughout the world. The Pentecost offering is important because it directly supports new Disciples’ faith communities. It provides training and assessments, project funding, congregational materials and assistance to help new congregation at the beginning of their life cycle. When we share the Chalice, we share and multiply the Love.

We invite you to continue with your tithes and offering through one of the options below. 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

“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.
