What is the Endowment?
The main purpose of the Endowment Fund is to support our ministries in doing God’s work. Gifts given to the Endowment via estates or extra gifts are invested until needed for specific projects. Good Stewardship is practiced via a Grant request process submitted to the 3-person Endowment Panel. Preference is given:
To requests for our ministries (both for the church and community) and for our building.
To grants for one-time (capital) expenses and NOT for ongoing budget expenses.
To requests that can NOT be funded from other sources.
“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”
“I will bless you and you will be a blessing…and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
Why Should I Give to the Endowment?
An endowment gift demonstrates one's belief that we are only stewards, entrusted by God, to use wisely what God has placed in our hands. When an individual creates an endowment gift for the Church during or beyond their lifetime, it declares the importance of our faith and trust in God.
Consider that the Endowment Fund is the Church's spare fuel tank to drive funding of specific needs that support its vision and mission. Your legacy may involve:
Realizing your passion by funding a special project.
Providing for special needs of the Worship and Music activities.
Valuable support for mission projects.
Providing assistance to community programs that the Church supports, such as Good Samaritan, Good Shepherd, or to start a new ministry.
Funding of a high value future need of the Church, just to name a few examples.
Please consider providing a gift, as you can make a difference in the life of the church and the community. If you are interested in contributing to the church’s Endowment, click the button below.
