What is the Biblical Teaching on Giving

Every Christian needs to understand how significant it is to be a steward of the resources God has entrusted them with. Paul writes a simple faith instruction to the early believers: “On every Lord’s day, each of you should put aside some amount of money in relation to what you have earned and save it for this offering.” (1 Corinthians 16:2 NLT).

Northview Community Church now supports credit card giving – please consider checking the box “cover fees” to help keep our expenses low.

Additional ways to give to Northview Community Church

Fill out an offering envelope found at the entrances to each of the doors to the Worship Center or at any of the info booths. Envelopes will then be collected during the offering.

Drop your cheque in the offering bag. You only need to fill out an offering envelope if you would like your cheque split to other funds in the church (e.g. Care fund). Please make cheques payable to Northview Community Church.

To have funds withdrawn directly from your bank account each month, pick up a pre-authorized giving form from any of the info booths or download here.

Debit / Credit terminals are found at the Info Booth by the Atrium and by the Coffee Counter at West Court. Follow the instructions by the machine. Be sure to fill out an offering envelope and include your debit / credit receipt to receive a tax receipt.
