Ways to Give

An appropriate CRA charitable donation income tax receipt will be issued at the financial year end by MCBC for all donations given by cheque, offering envelope, Tithe.ly Giving or PAR.

Tithe.ly Giving

The best way to give online to MCBC is through Tithe.ly! Once you’ve created your Tithe.ly account, it’s easy to keep track of your giving. With this safe and secure system, you can give a one-time donation or automate recurring giving.

Follow this step-by-step tutorial to set up your account and make your first donation.

  • Frequency: One-time or recurring (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly)
  • Designated giving options: General, Benevolent, or Capital Fund
  • Fees: you can choose to cover the cost of the service fees (this would be included in your receipted amount), or have the service fees automatically taken off of your donation
  • Tax receipt issued by: MCBC
CanadaHelps

Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR)

Offering Envelopes

As always, you can give during the offering time in our Sunday service. Cash or cheques can be placed in the offering plate (please use the appropriate offering envelope), or cheques can be mailed to the church. This is the only giving option if you wish to make a designation other than the General, Benevolent, or Capital Fund. 

  • Access through: Offering plate (cash or cheque) or by mail (cheques only - please do not mail cash)
  • Envelopes are available in the main hallway (General, Benevolent, and Capital Fund each have a specific envelope)
