Legacy Month is an annual invitation for our Evolve Church family to gather around our value of financial generosity. We do this by creating and expanding awareness for current projects, existing partnerships, and new vision that serve the city of Edmonton, the nation of Canada, and our world. As a church, we see Legacy Month as an opportunity to dedicate our focus and our money towards how God is inviting us to live generously as His holy people in supporting various ministries and charities who are championing the mission and Kingdom of Jesus both here in our nation and across the globe.
We are so incredibly grateful for the many individuals who consistently and generously give to the work of Evolve Church and our day-to-day ministry rhythms here in the city of Edmonton. Over this next month, we are inviting everyone in our community to prayerfully consider what joyful giving over and above our regular financial contribution might look like as a part of our legacy together. This is always a matter of prayer and surrender as we declare together, “Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). We understand clearly that our stewardship of money is a powerful and reliable indicator of where our hearts are at as we hear the teaching of Jesus to “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)As a community of faith at Evolve Church, we desire to be increasingly open-handed as followers of Jesus. Our vision is to be a people who grow in sacrificial giving as one of the most practical ways that our lives can bear witness to the timeless character of our God. Financial generosity is a powerful testimony to our world about the generosity and goodness of God. Whenever we give financially, it is an invitation to partner with God in our personal finances and experience his provision and blessing in our lives. Beyond that is the increasingly rewarding and exciting potential of us partnering with God as a people of faith! The community all participates: young and old, varying income brackets, singles and families — whether we give ten dollars or ten-thousand — all growing in our financial generosity and the deep heart conviction that we can accomplish more together.

Consider & Discuss
As you consider how you will actively participate in Legacy Month, take time to reflect on the charities and ministries presented. Which work most connects with your heart and passion? How do these partners reflect God’s call on our church? How am I being invited to take a step of generosity as part of my discipleship? And then, open up a conversation with your family, friends or even your small group.
Commit to spending time praying for each of these ministries and partners. Ask for God’s miraculous provision, wisdom and favour on each one. While praying, invite the Holy Spirit to lead you in determining how much you will give. We are all invited to decide in our hearts how much we will give. We don’t give reluctantly, or in response to pressure.“For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”- 2 Corinthians 9:7
Once you have prayerfully decided how much you will give over and above your regular financial contribution, there are opportunities to donate online, through text-to-give, in-person at one of our Sunday services, or by mail to our Evolve Church offices.
