There are several different ways to contribute to the mission of Cedarview. Cedarview attendees can give on Sunday mornings during our regular morning services, use our debit/credit kiosk or set up recurring giving online. To set up recurring giving online, there are some forms that need to be downloaded, filled out and returned to the church office. See the forms below to find the one that is right for you.

FINANCE UPDATE – February 2021
Greetings Cedarview Family! We have good news to share:
The past 12 months have certainly been difficult, but throughout 2020 you rose to the challenge of giving despite all the uncertainties of the pandemic. Because of that generosity, we are in a position to completely pay off the mortgage in March 2021, which is wonderfully ahead of schedule.
We had a surge of giving in December 2020 across all categories. Combined with reduced ministry expenses, we were able to make a truly substantial lump sum payment on the mortgage. By the end of January, our principal balance fell to approximately $40,000! Since we have a $20,000 reserve in the Mortgage Reduction Fund, this left us with an “effective balance” of approximately $20,000 on the mortgage. The time has come to close out the mortgage.
In order to do this properly, we are taking the following steps:
- We will continue accepting donations to the Mortgage Reduction Fund until the end of February 2021.
- At the end of February 2021 we will close the Mortgage Reduction Fund.
- In March 2021, we will pay off the remaining balance on the mortgage. We will use: (i) February giving to the Mortgage Reduction Fund and the Building Fund; (ii) the $20,000 reserve in the Mortgage Reduction Fund; if needed, a top-up from the Operating Fund
Beginning in March 2021, we ask you to shift your mortgage-related giving to Operations, where we can use it for ministry – to learn together, to build each other up, and to demonstrate the love of Christ to our community. You can also continue giving to the Building Fund, which is available for major facility projects as they arise.
We will take time to recognize the closing of the mortgage at our virtual AGM in March 2021. We will also organize an event later this year when we can come together to celebrate this wonderful milestone and praise our God for his goodness and provision to Cedarview.
If you have any questions about any details, please contact me via email at [email protected]. And as Paul said, I thank my God whenever I think of you!
