Each December Woodside raises funds for specific Year End Projects. This year there are three areas we are focusing on: a New Sound System, Local Missions, and Global Missions.
Goal for 2023: $150,000
Total Raised: $240,000
We thank God, our provider, for how he has blessed us. On behalf of the elders and staff, we want to thank you all for your generosity in raising this amount. The additional amount raise will be going to external needs, specifically Global Missions and Local Missions’ needs. The Elders are currently working with the Global and Local Missions teams to determine where God would have us direct these additional funds.
New Sound System for the Worship Centre $90K
The current speakers in our worship centre are no longer useable and so we are looking to update them and the over all sound quality.
Local Missions $10K
Conestoga Bible Camp
The camp is needing to repair structural damage to one of the cabins.
Global Missions $50K
1. Carlos & Rebecca Ortega- $10K
The Hope of Bastion School that Rebecca is involved with is needing a new air conditioning unit in the gymnasium.
2. Mark and Carmen Brubacher- $5K
Mark and Carmen are needing a new boat motor to access Mbala Island.
3. House of Hope- $10K
Deb and Hamid have been serving with House of Hope Austria for many years. The space they have been renting is no longer available for their ministry. They are currently looking at purchasing a building to continue the ministry.
4. Missionary Gifts- $25K
Our purpose is to be able to provide a one-time gift to our missionary partners, some of whom do not have “projects” that require support, but would still benefit from a financial gift.
The Global Missions team will use its discretion in how the gift is distributed.
There are several ways to support these initiatives financially:
- cheque or cash (to be put in the offering boxes on Sundays or dropped off during office hours)
- e-tranfer to firstname.lastname@example.org – please indicate Year End Projects in the memo
- pre-authorized debit
- for more woodsidechurch.ca/give
If more than the targeted amount is received in the Year-End project, the Elders will have discretion on how best to use those funds.
Please clearly indicate on your offering envelope or e-transfer that you want to direct your donation to the Year-End Project .
We will accept donations for the year-end project until Saturday December 31, 2022. Official receipts will be issued in early 2023.
