What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday was initiated in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It is strategically placed during the Thanksgiving holiday, with the goal of helping people make choices with their money that will have lasting impact in their communities. Since 2012, it has grown into a year-round global movement of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. This year you have the opportunity to help support the continued ministry endeavors of Lakeshore by participating in Giving Tuesday. 

Since 2017, Lakeshore has been able to operate completely debt-free, allowing us to stretch and grow in ways we could have never imagined. And now, as we look to the future, we recognize that for us to continue the safe and secure operation of ministry in aging facilities, we must begin a series of capital improvements that will support the ongoing ministry as well as prepare us for future ministry endeavors. These fundamental infrastructure upgrades will allow us to continue the faithful stewardship of the facilities we own, impacting our communities with the love and life of Jesus Christ for years to come.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

GIVE

One of the most effective way you can partner with us is by making a financial contribution. We believe strongly the work Lakeshore is doing is a worthy cause in which to invest. We recognize this time of year many individuals and businesses are looking for business and organization in which to invest for end-of-year giving, and Giving Tuesday is the official start to end-of-year giving. You can contribute online by clicking the “Make A Donation” button and then selecting “General” > “Giving Tuesday 2023” as the designation. You can also skip the processing fees by mailing a check with the designation “Giving Tuesday” to :

Lakeshore Christian Fellowship

SHARE

Another great way to participate in Giving Tuesday is to simply spread the word. In the Bible, Nehemiah set out to rebuild the walls that were in disrepair, and before he approached the King he specifically prayed: “Grant me success today by making the king favorable to me. Put it in his heart to be kind to me (Neh. 1:11).” And we read a few verses later, “the king granted these requests, because the gracious hand of God was on [Nehemiah] (Neh. 2:8).” We’re praying and believing that not only people WITHIN Lakeshore will want to partner to support the work of the ministry, but that God would grant us favor with business owners, politicians, investors, and many more who are looking to use their resources to build their communities. We believe that what God is doing at Lakeshore is a great work, and we’re praying for favor in this venture. Look below to find Social Media images and captions you can share to get the word out.

PRAY

Lastly, we would ask you to join us in prayer. We work diligently to regularly evaluate our properties and we invite our local agencies into our process. We don’t fully know the extent of the upcoming capital improvements we will need to complete, but we have had multiple conversations with different municipalities, and there are multiple paths that lie in front of us. While there are several unknowns, we do know there is a great need, both financially to accomplish the work, as well as logistically with different organizations. So, pray with us: for an outpouring of generosity; for favor with local companies and municipalities as we endeavor to prepare our buildings for the next phase of ministry; for wisdom for our leadership team as they pursue the best ways to steward our resources; and for each other — that we would have the burden Nehemiah had and mobilize ourselves into action; that we would realize that every part, regardless of the size of the contribution, makes a difference, and that the cost of the sacrifice is always worth it; and that we would keep our hearts right and our perspective clear.
