Pro•Vision Project

Year End Fundraising

Give a one-time Christmas gift over and above any regular giving to help us meet our $60,000 goal!

At the end of every year at Westside Church, we go above and beyond and raise some money for some important projects that we believe embody the mission that God has set us on. This year, we’re calling it the Pro•Vision Project.
 
One of the names given to God in Hebrew is Yahweh Yireh and it means ‘Yahweh sees.’ For God, to see a need is to meet a need - He is our Provider. Similarly, our English word ‘provision’ comes from two Latin words Pro - Ahead and Vision - to see. To make provision or to provide literally means to see ahead. To see needs and then to meet them.
 
As we launch this campaign, we want to invite you to join us as we see some important needs and then step up and meet them. We have 3 projects that we want to fund this year:

1) Auditorium Renovation: Our building is a wonderful tool that enables us to gather together and provides a place for us to invite our friends, family, and neighbours to hear about the good news of Jesus. Early in November, renovations began in our auditorium to create a functional and welcoming space. New walls, flooring, and paint are all part of this project. We want to be good stewards of this building as it enables us to facilitate the mission of Westside Church.

2) Care Center in Guatemala with Ryan’s Rays: We want to partner with an amazing foundation to help children with special needs in Guatemala. Ryan’s Rays is a foundation that supports projects across the world and seeks to improve the lives of children and youth living with disabilities - with a focus on inclusive education and recreation. The current project is to fund the building of a care centre for children living with disabilities. Many of these children are in desperate need. Some have been abandoned or their families are unable to provide them with the care they need. This centre will provide an extra 15 patient beds, a session stimulation therapy room, isolation quarters, a nurse’s station, and dining area. This site will allow more children living with disabilities to receive both short-term and long-term care, including daily medical support, specialized nutrition, physiotherapy, psychological care, and lots of love.

3) Growth/Outreach: This past year at Westside has been one of growth and we want to continue to provide for the growth and outreach opportunities that God has given to us. Christmas Eve is our biggest outreach opportunity of the year and we want to make sure that we can create an engaging environment for our guests. As we head into the new year, we also have a lot of opportunities to make a difference in people’s lives and want to invest in some exciting initiatives. For example, Alpha Marriage is a proven program that helps strengthen marriages and we want to make sure it is accessible to anyone who wants to participate. We also want to make sure that we continue to fund our children’s and youth programs and invest in the faith of the next generation. Westside Kids and Youth now has over 100 children registered and it continues to grow. We want to make sure that we can provide the very best opportunities for kids to thrive as they grow in their faith and invite friends to join them!

Pro•Vision Project Financial Breakdown:

• Auditorium Renovation: $25,000
• Care Center in Guatemala: $25,000
• Growth/Outreach: $10,000

Our total financial goal is to raise $60,000

Every gift helps to change lives!
