Adventist Giving Online

Adventist Giving online allows you to return your tithe and give your offerings online while you do your online banking, are on a long business trip, on vacation, or even if you are unable to attend church due to an illness.  

But most important of all, if you desire to give back to the Lord all of your first fruits as soon as you have them, you can do it immediately through Adventist Giving.

For Your Information

The "Offering Focus" changes every week. This means that weekly "Loose Offerings" collected on each Sabbath go towards the designated focus or recipient. Our Local Church Budget is the recipient every 1st and 3rd  Sabbath generally, and this is in addition to those who give systematically using all other options noted below. 

We hope that you will continue to give offerings to our Local Church Budget (sometimes called Combined Church Budget) every time you return your Tithe. Your Church Budget offerings are the main source of funds supporting our local church expenses.

If we only return Tithe, we have not yet given an offering to the Lord. We are only returning the tithe that does not belong to us. That is God's.  Also, we have not given anything to our local church, since all Tithes are remitted to the Ontario Conference for biblically assigned purposes.

The suggested giving guide for our Local Church Budget is 3-5% of our income.

The focus of this Sabbath's loose offering is designated for: 

           LOCAL CONFERENCE ADVANCE
