HOW THE WHOLE CHURCH IS LOVING GREATER AUSTIN
People hear the Gospel in many ways and often over time. It always requires hearing the explicit words. But often, hearing the “music” of the Gospel makes the impact greater.
For thousands of years the local church has been busy loving and serving those around her—caring for orphans and widows, the hungry, the sick, the alien and the poor. We celebrate and encourage those ongoing efforts in all their unique expressions.
In Austin, we wanted to find one area no one else was addressing that would require the whole church to be involved—one thing to join together in doing as another sign of unity in the Gospel.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Most of our funding is given by a small group of generous donors and corporations as well as some church contributions. Our model has succeeded in a ratio of $100 per child/per year—an astonishing $10 per month when calculated over the school calendar.
However, to scale and expand we need your help. To reach the next 1,000 children will require additional investment. Please consider giving to this Gospel-anchored effort to love Greater Austin and reach the next generation through reading.
GOOD FRIDAY CITY WIDE CELEBRATION AND FUNDRAISER
For ten years, Life Austin together with CTGA has gathered the big “C” church in unified worship and used the proceeds to fund important charitable causes throughout Greater Austin. To date, nearly $1.5 million has been raised or directed! Quite literally, the music of the Gospel has benefited thousands across our city in Jesus’ name.
