SRC Child Sponsorship

Uganda is a small country located in East Africa. More than half of its population is under the age of 15, and 96% of the children are vulnerable to abuse in their own households, schools, and communities. This year BCEC continues to partner with World Vision to support the Minakulu, Uganda Area Development Program through child sponsorship. To sponsor a child, please apply in person in the lobby of 249 Harrison Avenue on Father’s Day (6/21) or do so online at this website anytime this month: www.worldvision.org/bcec


Boston Hope @ BCEC

As the Ebola outbreak continues to unfold in West Africa, health care facilities have been overwhelmed by the number of those in need of care. This has forced many families to become Caregivers to loved ones suffering from the disease. This year, BCEC is partnering with World Vision to prepare Ebola Caregiver Kits for communities in Sierra Leone where there remains an urgent need for supplies to help prevent the spread of the disease. Our church wide goal is to raise $11,000 to sponsor 300+ Caregiver Kits ($30 each). We will collect donations on Sundays: April 26 and May 3. We will build caregiver kits on May 17, with preparation on May 15.

2014 Offering Receipt Request

Treasury Announcement:

Praise God for your love of the Lord and His church and support BCEC’s ministry in many different ways. This is a reminder that as we welcome 2015, the 2014 tax filing season will soon begin. With our total contribution units grow towards 1,000, BCEC Treasury has tried various ways to streamline the process to save labor and cost. We found that generating the receipts in PDF format and delivering the tax receipt by email are the most efficient and cost effective method. We had a number of undeliverable each year due to incorrect email and postal addresses. Please update your email or postal address at http://www.bcec.net/about/member-resources/tax_receipt-request-form/.

We would also like to take this opportunity to give you a few friendly reminders…

  1. To request a new Contributor ID or update your contact information, please go to http://www.bcec.net/about/member-resources/contributor-id-request-form/
  2. Cash offering: Please write your Contribution ID and English name clearly on the envelope. Writing only a name on the envelope may cause your offering to be counted as anonymous offering.
  3. Check offering: Please note the proper way to write a check to BCEC:
    • Write only “BCEC” on the payable line.
  4. Do not write “BCEC Mission”, “BCEC Expansion” etc. This practice is very important to our weekly counting procedure. It helps reduce processing time and minimize entry error.
    Write your Contribution ID and fund name on the memo line

    • Example: #999 GF, #999 MF, #999 EF, #999 CF, #999 Project Destiny
