Giving Tuesday is a global movement across Canada and around the world for giving and volunteering. It takes place each year on the first Tuesday after Black Friday. It is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for Giving Tuesday. It provides a platform to encourage the donation of time, resources, and talents in order to address local challenges. Together the collective power of a unique blend of partners: nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals, expanding our capacity to care for, and empower one another.

This year, New Life Church will be participating in Giving Tuesday (November 27) by extending generosity to one of our key local mission’s partners, Joshua House. With the recent addition of a new 32 acre facility out near Chilliwack Lake, there is much need for financial support, as well as volunteers to help establish this new intake house. For more detailed information, please refer to the following link.

There are many traditional ways to give to this very important partnership including dropping off offerings at the church in the form of cash or cheques; however, we would like to highlight our new online giving platform as a great way to donate to this cause.

We have just released our New Life smartphone app and it is an easy and safe way to give online. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play store here, or the Apple App store here. As well, you can give through our website, or by text. For more details on these two options, visit the “give” page on our website here.

At New Life we are thankful for the long standing partnership that we have with Joshua House recovery ministries. We count it a privilege to partner with this organization this year on Tuesday, November 27, and we thank you in advance for your generosity.

God Bless,

Mike Vanderkwaak
