Leaving a Legacy
In 1907 a faith-filled project was undertaken by a small group of believers to build a place in this community where the name of Jesus would be lifted up and people could gather together and worship. One hundred years later, that building was no longer large enough. And in 2007 CauseWay Church moved their Sunday services to the local school gym. In October this year it will be 16 years of meeting in the gym on Sunday mornings – 16 years of love and commitment from volunteers who have set up and packed down the House of God each week. We are thankful that God provided us with a place to meet. But He has more to do and more people to reach.
Legacy is all about setting up future generations for what God has for them to do. In the same way that we have been beneficiaries of those who left a legacy before us, we have the opportunity to do the same for our children and grandchildren.
To be part of our Legacy Offering we ask you to make a faith pledge – a commitment of finances that you will give over the next 12 months (over and above your tithes and offerings) to make a difference to future generations. Whether that is $5/week or $100/week – the amount is not what matters. It’s about the opportunity to give what God puts on our hearts in order to accelerate the vision of our church and reach more people with the Good News of Jesus.
This year’s Legacy Offering runs from October 2023 to September 2024.
We encourage you to join us on our Legacy journey. We are all in different stages of life. It’s not about equal giving, but equal sacrifice. And we would love to see everyone to participate in some way. Please pray and plan to give to our Legacy Offering—you can make all the difference. No matter the amount, you can play a crucial part in building the future generations of our church. Everyone matters. Everything counts. As always, it’s between you and God. Just simply ask Him, “What should I give?”
