Faith’s Parish Planning Council (PPC) is pleased to announce that $30,000 was identified as income from Faith’s Endowment Fund that can be used by ministry teams and other congregational entities in 2021 to support new ministry opportunities outside of Faith’s regular operating budget.
Seventeen applications for Endowment funds were submitted to the PPC this year, totaling $56,288.
The awards were evenly distributed this year between three categories: ministries here at Faith, in the LCMS at large, and within our community. God has truly blessed us and we are the stewards of His gifts. Thanks be to God!
