Give a Gift
“Legacies are footprints we leave behind after we die. They prove that we were here: we lived, we mattered, we made a difference.”
– Rachel Freed
With gratitude for the working of the Holy Spirit, we give thanks for the members who have already made a gift to the Mission Endowment Fund or taken steps to include Bethlehem in their financial and estate planning.

Decisions about gifts to the Mission Endowment Fund – either during one’s life or as a legacy bequest – should me made with prayerful consideration of the donors’ intent as well as the available options.
Members of the Mission Endowment Fund Committee – as well as a professional gift planner from the ELCA – are available to assist or answer questions.
Contact the church office if you have a question or wish to discuss your options.
