Many of our friends and family have asked about on-line giving. We have now enabled on-line giving via Pay-Pal both on this blog and on the website (www.lvlegacy.org).
You will note that there are two donate buttons on the top right of this blog. One is to give directly to Legacy Church; and one button is for our fundraising efforts to send 3-4 folks to Uganda in December for LEAD Uganda.
PayPal is safe and secure, but if you feel safer sending a check, mail it to: Legacy Church, PO Box 250, Macungie, PA 18049. In the memo either put "Legacy" for church fund or "Uganda" for the mission trip.
As always, if you cannot contribute, your prayers are most important too! Thanks for considering us!
Peace and One Love!
In His Love,
The Legacy Team

This Sunday as part of Vision Sunday, in addition to our 1st Baptism Service at 4:30pm @ The Carpenter's Community Church, 4609 Newburg Road, Nazareth, PA 18064; we will be making a BIG announcement about our 1st steps towards our global initiative.
Although the majority of our compassion work and efforts will be local for the people of the Lehigh Valley, we also want to live out Acts 1:8 by taking the 1st steps in beginning our "Ends of the Earth" effort.
On 28 December 09 through 08 January 10, Nicole (Our Family Life Leader), a church community member to be named, and myself will be flying to Uganda to see first hand the work that is being done with an organization called LEAD Uganda! This organization is doing some amazing work with Orphans of Aids and former Child Soldiers. To see what they are doing, we provided the links below.
If you are part of Legacy, we want YOU to start praying about being THE person that accompanies Nicole and I. We thought it would be great for a non-staff person to accompany us and to help us determine if this is where God wants us to be. We are making the trip to ensure we are spending our compassion (time and money) wisely. We need to identify this person pretty quickly however because of passport, immunization, and fundraising efforts.
Speaking of fundraising - NO church funds will be used for this trip. Each person will be responsible for raising their own trip money. The cost of the trip is approx. $3,000. We have created a PayPal link on both our website and our blog to donate specifically to this trip. If you do not want to use PayPal, then mail your donation to: Legacy Church, PO Box 250, Macungie, PA 18062 and put Uganda in the memo. Here are the links to the websites to donate online:
If you cannot contribute financially, then please pray for us with respect to this trip and for the children we will meet.
Here are the links for LEAD Uganda:
They also have a group on Facebook, just search for LEAD Uganda or click here: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/group.php?gid=82483290952&ref=ts
Thanks so much!
Peace and One Love!
