Leaving a Legacy

Over 100 years ago, a handful of believers in Mangawhai had the vision to lay a foundation for God’s House in Mangawhai. The original Mangawhai Church building, later called Mangawhai Interdenominational Church, was built using local labour and donated materials in 1907. The vision these people and subsequent generations carried, was to see God’s Kingdom grow in this community. Every one of us has benefited from their vision and their prayers, and now it’s our turn to invest in the next generation.

This year we are introducing ‘Legacy’ – an offering that will help achieve the vision that we share here at CauseWay. Our first goal is to complete our new building on our land and finally have a permanent home for CauseWay Church.

For our Legacy Offering we are asking you to make a faith pledge. A faith pledge is 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 2022 to September 2023.

We’re encouraging everyone to join with us on our Legacy journey. We are all in different stages of life. It’s not about equal giving, but equal sacrifice. Our goal is not for a certain amount to be given, but for 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?”

This Giving Table is a guide to show you how your 12-month pledge multiplies when combined with the commitment of others.  The more who take part, the bigger difference we make. (A giving unit is one individual/couple/family)
