All you need is access to online or mobile banking through a participating financial institution, and you can send money to TMCCC — without sharing any personal financial information. It’s a great alternative to cheques and cash.

TMCCC has registered the Autodeposit feature provided by Interact e-Transfer, which is safer, convenient and time-saving. The offering fund we received can automatically be deposited into TMCCC’s designated bank account. You do not need to provide security question and security answer.

In this special time, for the sake of everyone’s physical, mental and spiritual health and to prevent the transmission of the epidemic, we encourage brothers and sisters to cooperate and work together. We hope that we can care and help each other in this special time. If brothers and sisters have any needs, please feel free to contact the pastoral staff or co-workers in your fellowship and group leaders. We are all willing to help and support you!

May we pray together with a united heart and spirit to overcome this epidemic. “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” (II Timothy 1:7) May God bless you!
