Endowment Gift

How Can An Endowment Gift Benefit You?
With a gift made to our church’s endowment, you can support ministry and benefit in numerous ways:
*You may be entitled to take a charitable income deduction for a gift made today.
* You can help make sure that your church is financially supported for years to come.
* You can leave a legacy that will inspire others.
Would you like to find a way to support the causes that matter most to you even after you are gone? Consider an endowment gift to your church’s endowment fund. To learn more about how you can make a gift endow the future of our church, please contact Pastor Steve or Joan Miloch, chair of the Endowment Committee.


Transfiguration Sunday

 
This Sunday is called Transfiguration Sunday. We read the story of Jesus climbing a mountain with three of his disciples and on the top they have a powerful vision in which they see the Divine nature of Jesus. It is so powerful and out of the ordinary that they are shaken by fear. You can read this story in chapter 17 of Matthews gospel, verses 1 – 9. Part of the message they get is — “this is my Son, listen to him.”
 
Next Wednesday begins the season of Lent, the season of 40 days — a season of reflection, fasting, and listening to Jesus. We have been given a preview of Jesus in glory (Transfiguration) and now we journey with Jesus to the cross (Lent — Good Friday). Use this time of Lent to listen to Jesus, to reflect on temptations and the call of Jesus. These church seasons can be wonderful way to stay conscious and reflective as we journey through life.
 
Grace and Peace to you,
 
Steve
