Sunday, November 17th, 2019
The third Sunday of November each year is designated Legacy Sunday, to coincide with National Philanthropy Day (Nov. 15). This is a great day for congregations to celebrate the legacies people have made to the church, Canada and the world, and to highlight how planned gifts can provide for generations to come.
Worship resources for clergy and worship leaders are available for a service highlighting legacies and planned gifts.
