Lightway Church exists to Connect our Community to Life in Jesus Christ! It just so happens that our community struggles with poverty in a big way.
Over a third of Riverdale’s population (35%) is living in poverty. Almost half of children under six in Riverdale (49%) are living on incomes below the poverty line. The poverty rate of Riverdale seniors is significantly higher than the city (20% vs. 7%).
As a group of Christians meeting in an East Hamilton school every week, we decided that instead of raising money for a building we would raise money to practically help our community. In 2018 we partnered with CAP Canada to help our neighbours struggling with debt and poverty.
We need your help - for the month of May we are hoping to raise $40,000 so that we can continue this poverty busting work! Please support our church as we reach our community with help and the love of Jesus Christ!
