HOW MUCH DOES ARMOUR HEIGHTS CHURCH MEAN TO YOU? Through special gifts and generous donations, we did quite well covering our budget in 2018. After the first three months of 2019, though, we’re running a shortfall of $9000 in congregational givings. How much have you thought about your givings to the church? Our automatic monthly withdrawals (PAR) program is very easy to set up and easy to adjust in terms of the amount donated each month. For individual one time donations, our website offers an easy way to do that using a credit card and with an immediate charitable receipt for tax purposes. Alternatively, the traditional cheque or cash in an envelope with an envelope number or your information also works. Speak to Erin Stone or David Murray, or email email@example.com for questions or sign up.
