For the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing vision at Lawton First and how together we can make this a reality through The Cause. If you missed any of the past few Sundays, I encourage you to visit http://thecause.lawtonfirst.org and listen to the sermons and also check out The Cause brochure.
Last night in our mid-week service, leadership gathered to make two-year commitments to The Cause. First Chronicles 29 tells how the leaders of Israel came together willingly for the cause of building the temple “not for man but for the Lord God.” These scriptures tell us that the people rejoiced at the willing response of their leaders. Last night, LFA leaders committed $706,374 to The Cause! We wanted you to know and to celebrate with us.
This Sunday, we are encouraging everyone to commit to The Cause. We will also take a special Launch Offering. We really feel this will be a historic offering for LFA that kicks off our outreach and compassion ministries.
I encourage you to visit http://thecause.lawtonfirst.org/give for information and resources that will help you process your commitment to The Cause. My prayer is that everyone who calls Lawton First his or her church home will catch the vision of The Cause.
