God is generous to us and gives us many opportunities to be generous in response. There are various ways to share your gifts at HMC: leading parts of worship, volunteering your time on committees, using your creativity to plan events, sharing your food at church potlucks. We are grateful too for quiet gifts: people who pray and people who listen. Everyone has something to share and something to receive.
There are several ways to make a financial gift – in worship, towards a special project, and online.
Offering in worship
During our Sunday worship service, we have different types of offerings:
Hospitals in the Congo - We pass baskets for coins that support Mennonite Central Committee's Menno-Santé program for hospitals in the Congo.
Ministry of our church - We pass bags to collect money towards all of the ministry outlined in our church budget. We support ministry locally, nationally and internationally.
Food Bank - On the first Sunday of each month, we collect money and non-perishable food items for the Welcome Inn Food Bank here in Hamilton.
Our church supports a refugee family, as well as other special and seasonal projects. Not everyone gives to every project but there is a joy in being part of a cause we believe in.
