Message Notes: Living to Give #2 – Give and It Shall Be Given

#02: GIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN

I       INTRODUCTION

A)  I want to talk to you about our LEGACY Breakout Offering on Sunday, June 24th

B)  Legacy = something tangible that is passed from one generation to another

C)  This year Toronto City Church is celebrating 30 years. Church Without Limits would have been celebrating its 18th Anniversary. What we are experiencing now is because there were many people who have prayed, served, been faithful, scarfed and sowed… some who are here and some who are not. They have left a legacy to us.

D)  We are coming into a new season of faith, contending, praying, sowing and sacrificing for what God wants to do in the next 30 years and we are going to pay the price now to leave a legacy for the next generation. We are going to be FUTURE focused.

E)  For the next season, our LEGACY Offering is going to focus on two key thrusts: we are going to attack our mortgage and we are going to strategically invest in key advancements.

F)   Our mortgage is currently $2.6 million. Last year we were able to take an extra $60,000 off of it and our goal is that every year we will continue to go above and beyond our regular payments to pay it down. We are believing the Lord to be debt-free. And we still have Phase 3 to build.

G)  Next week I’m going to talk about some of the other elements of this years offering.

H)  I want to call on every member of our church family to seek God and give into this special offering (above your regular tithes and offerings)

I)     We are also going to be starting the LEGACY Company – a group of people who are committed to give above and beyond in the vision/mission of TCC in a strategic way and help us push forward into the future. Continue reading →
