For all of our Canadian members and groups – we have a great resource to share with you! Christian Stewardship Services is an organization made to help you plan, and give, no matter what stage you are in life.
 
Perhaps you have everything planned and think that you’re all set, but with a deeper look into your plan, CSS could uncover an oversight, like they did for Henny.

What an amazing first Friendship Ministries Golf Outing!
 
Everything surrounding yesterday’s golf outing was beyond our expectations. Between the amazing turnout and support, to the beautiful (almost) sunny day we were blessed with, we couldn’t have asked for a better first annual Friendship Ministries Golf Outing.
 
We are so grateful to everyone who made this event possible: all of the sponsors, the endless raffle gift donations, and the amazing turnout of golfers, volunteers and friends!

There are so many factors to consider when planning your estate and will. If you plan to give a portion to charity, we have a few easy tools from Barnabas Foundation to make sure you can calculate it accurately and easily.

Generosity comes in many forms. Whether it’s teaching, taking care of someone, giving a gift, or loving someone, generosity is a beautiful thing. We see so many amazing kinds of generosity in Friendship groups around the world, and they inspire us to give more every single day.
