God, in the very core of His being, is generous.  He is constantly pouring himself out in love.  God's generosity is clearly displayed in the glory of creation and ultimately in the giving of His Son for our salvation and abundant life.  

When we mimic His generosity through our giving we reflect His character, which brings Him great pleasure. 

Giving to God through the local church is a way to uphold these truths in our daily lives.

Union Chapel is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; all donations to Union Chapel are tax-deductible. 

We make Giving Statements available to anyone who has contributed financially. 


We often receive questions about the different methods of giving.  

Here are some of the pros and cons of the different methods of giving.


Placing your checks or cash in the buckets on Sunday.

Pros? The tradition of writing a check or preparing cahs, and then giving it away is an intentional worship practice.  Union Chapel receives the entire amount, as there are no transaction fees.

Cons? This is the most time-intensive method;  when attendance fluctuates, giving fluctuates, while day-to-day operational expenses remain steady.  Cash donations are also harder to record for tax purposes.


Create "Union Chapel" as a vendor with your bank or credit union and schedule weekly, monthly, or one-time gifts that come through the mail directly to Union Chapel. 

Pros? Ease, consistency, no transaction fees.

Cons?  "Out of sight, out of mind" can disconnect the giver from the act of worship


Bank Account Transfers allow you to schedule weekly, monthly, or one-time gifts. You can do this by simply clicking the button above and setting up an account. 

Pros? Ease of use, consistency of giving, readily accepted and reported.

Cons? Processing fees are charged to Union Chapel; the "out of sight, out of mind" disconnect can detract from the worship experience.


Schedule a weekly, monthly, or one-time gift using your card.  We encourage everyone to give without going into debt.

Pros?  Ease of use, consistency of giving, readily accepted and reported. 

Cons? Credit cards are most susceptible to foul play; processing fees to Union Chapel are the largest with this method (3%); and again, the ease of giving without the intentionality of giving can deprive one of a sense of worship.

If you are outside of the Vancouver area and feel led to give above and beyond what you are giving to your local community, we thank you for your trust in what God is doing through the body of Union Chapel. If you have any questions, please send us an email.
