Mission Endowment Fund

The Mission Endowment Fund complements and enhances the mission of Bethlehem through grants for ongoing and new ministries.


The goal of Stewardship Ministry is to help people grow their relationship with God through the use of their time, talents, treasures and finances God has entrusted to them.

With an array of Ministries, we’re expanding our reach in places we may never see. Have a quick look through our Ministries tab and join us as we change lives.

Bethlehem Lutheran is a place where…

  • We believe in the gift of tithing, that of special gifts, an endowment for your legacy
  • Giving is an act of discipleship, and that faithful giving is an important part of faithful lives
  • We respond gratefully, sacrifice proportionately and commit intentionally
  • Money is talked about openly and honestly

How do we respond to God’s call to serve and love our neighbor? In one word – Kindness.

We faithfully steward the gifts God has given to us. Although some think of stewardship as only a financial response to God’s love, Stewardship encompasses so much more than money. It is about how we use all that God has entrusted to our care, to love God and our neighbor — everyday.
