Give to Bethany
Giving our tithes and offerings reflects a grateful heart that wants to give back to God a portion of what He has given us; in reality, what is already His. God wants us to live a life of generosity and to trust Him with our finances. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.
In light of the recent devastating floods in the Fraser Valley, we want to give you an opportunity to donate to the flood relief effort. If you would like to donate, over and above your regular giving to Bethany, please designate that portion of your donation to "Flood Relief." This can be done by making a note in the memo section of an e-transfer or by choosing the "Flood Relief" fund from the drop-down menu when giving online.
We've updated our platform to make giving simpler and faster than ever before. Learn how to set up an account for online giving or text-to-give, track your giving and save credit cards.
Bethany is charged a fee when donations are made online with a credit card; please consider checking the box "Please add the credit card processing fee to my donation" to help keep our expenses low. The entire amount including the fees you opted to cover will be on your tax receipt.
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
Using your online banking, you can quickly send your donation to Bethany at any time. To give using e-transfer, please follow these instructions:
a. Add Bethany as a new e-transfer recipient with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
b. There is no need to set a security question as we have Auto Deposit set up for these e-transfers.
c. IMPORTANT: Please be sure to include your name and address in the memo section of the transaction (we need this information in order to issue a tax receipt for this donation). We realize that some online bank services limit comments to only 40 characters, so please also send a separate email with your name, address and the amount of the donation separately to email@example.com.
Text GIVE [amount] to number 604-330-9707 to start giving. After a quick one-time setup, giving is as easy as sending a text.

The spending of funds is confined to the programs and oversight of Bethany Baptist Church. Each gift designated toward a church program will be used as designated. When any given need has been met, or where projects cannot be reasonably carried out, the donor agrees that designated gifts may be used where needed most.
