Connexus! Thank you for being generous!!
Yesterday at Connexus we launched the Be Rich campaign. Be Rich is our serving and giving campaign based on 1 Timothy 6:18. “Command those who are rich in this present world…to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share” (NIV).
As a church we have partnered with four incredible local organizations. In Barrie, The David Busby Street Centre and The Barrie Food Bank. At our Orillia campus we have partnered with Lighthouse Christian Ministries and The Orillia Branch of the Salvation Army.
Yesterday with over 25 North Point partner churches all over North America we set out to unleash a wave of generosity into our local and global communities.
In his message Andy tells us, “God has been generous to us, we have the chance toward those who can’t or won’t return the favor.”
Connexus, yesterday you had the chance to be generous with your giving , and you stepped up!
It was so exciting to see hundreds of people waiting in line at various stations around our foyers in Barrie and Orillia to Give More! Together as a church family we are giving not only to our four partner organizations, but to families and individuals who are hurting in our communities. You are giving to those who can’t or won’t return the favor.
That is what it means to be generous.
One member of our church said, “I impulse gave today and it felt awesome!”.
It is awesome! It’s awesome to be part of a church that is rich in good deeds and is willing to share.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to give towards the Be Rich campaign you still have the opportunity to jump in. Don’t miss out on this tremendous opportunity!
