From: Jay Fulkerson, Mission Endowment Fund
Thank you to all members of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. Your generosity has helped our congregation meet the challenge of “reaching out in love”. Over the past four years our Mission Endowment Fund has raised over $30000 dollars and distributed over $21,000 dollars to worthwhile causes in our community and beyond.
The Mission Endowment Fund is set up to support Prince of Peace member causes, Community support, ELCA Synod work, and ELCA National projects.
To date we have supported Walk through the Bible, Feed My Starving Children, Mission Jamaica, Christmas in August, Habitat for Humanity, Center for Grieving Children, St Joseph Food Pantry, Hrang Hei, Crossways Ministries, LSS Adoption Ambassadors, UTC Distance Learning, and Lutheran Campus Ministries. It is because of your generous support that we have been able to support these great causes and again we thank you.
A subcommittee met this week to look into the future to determine the direction the Endowment should take. It was clear that one great opportunity was to better communicate the success we have had and to make the Mission Endowment Fund a key part of the fabric of the congregation. It is by this report that we begin the efforts to raise awareness and will continue to develop additional ideas to share at the Annual and Spring meetings of the Congregation.
If you have ideas please let us know, we value your input and support.
