First, if you are a guest and not a regular attender or committed member of the church, then we invite you to continue coming and getting to know us without any obligation at all. Wouldn't it be weird to invite someone over to your home for supper and then expect them to help with the rent? We feel the same way about our church. We just want you to feel at ease and enjoy exploring the Christian faith as a guest of Beacon Communities!
On the other hand, if you are a committed member or strongly feel as a Christian that you would like to help with the costs of starting a new church in James Bay, please keep reading.
Our total annual costs, including hall rental for Sunday services, salaries, community events, and operating expenses, is approximately $100,000.
At Beacon Communities, we believe God has been generous in giving us so much through Jesus. We encourage followers of Jesus Christ to respond with generosity to help spread this news.
