The Mission Endowment Fund
The Mission Endowment Fund of Bethlehem Lutheran Church exists to further the work of God by supporting and expanding the mission and ministry of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. The fund exists to receive gifts from members, invest and manage those gifts,and disperse a portion of those gifts in support of the fund’s purpose.
The purpose of the fund is to complement and supplement the mission of Bethlehem Lutheran Church through grants that enhance the ongoing ministry of the congregation or develop new ministry and vision. While the congregation is expected to meet the church’s operating budget with regular giving, the endowment fund offers another channel through which members can support ongoing ministries as well as encourage the development of new ministries.
The fund shall exist so long as Bethlehem Lutheran Church continues to exist.
