General Fund

Giving sacrificially and cheerfully is an integral part of our worship. As believers, our goal is to be good stewards of that which God has entrusted to us. We call our members to give sacrificially and cheerfully to God– a vertical transaction rather than horizontal. But we do not talk percentage. Instead, we talk of gladly sacrificing for the sake of the gospel, knowing how gladly Jesus Christ sacrificed for our sake and knowing that all we have belongs to him.

Please make all cheques payable to 'Grace Toronto Church'.

If you are a part of our Westend congregation, please write 'Grace Toronto West' on the memo line.
