Inspire, Ask, and Thank with Salt & Light!


Get ready—our new 2016/17 congregational giving resource, Called to Be the Church: Salt and Light, should have arrived! (A copy was sent to ministry personnel in every congregation.)
 
We listened to what people told us about Called to Be the Church and used it to develop a new and improved program for 2016-2017 that will take it to the next level. This new Congregational Giving Program gives you everything you need to enliven generosity and giving.
 
Everything related to Salt and Light—including supplementary materials not included in the print version--is available on Stewardshiptoolkit.ca. In addition, we are here to answer questions and put you in contact with field staff who can help you implement the program. Call us at 1-800-268-3781, ext. 4029. or reach us by e-mail.
 


Mission & Service in El Salvador


We celebrate the reconciliation work taking place in El Salvador. United Church people served as chaplains and participated in workshops at the Peace Conference that was held in March. Our gifts for Mission & Service keep the justice seeking voices of our partners, Emmanuel Baptist Church and Santa Marta Economic and Social Development Association (ADES), strong and faithful. Amen!
 


Your Gifts Go Further through the Foundation


Active in the life and work of Christ Church United in Mississauga, Ontario, Steve and Marg Shaver benefit greatly in giving of their time, talent and treasure. They say, “We give of both our time and donations because we can. We give because it feels right. We give because we gain so much from our associations with Christ Church in Mississauga. And we give because Mission & Service connects us to something much larger and more important than ourselves.”
 
And when it came time to decide how to make those gifts the decision was simple. “We chose The United Church of Canada Foundation to manage our donations because it’s an easy, tax-effective way for us to make a significant impact,” Steve says.
 
For more information about how you can make your gift go further, please contact Sarah Charters by calling the Foundation by email or phone, 1-866-340-8223.
