Mission Statement Centered in Christ to gather, grow and go. The application shall be placed in the Endowment Committee mailbox or mailed and received by the church office by July 31, 2012. The Endowment Committee will forward the respective application to the ap- propriate committee for review and for them to make a recommendation. The recommendations shall be sent to the Endowment Committee by August 31st and they will be reviewed and recommendations made for the Church Council appropriate to the amount of funds available. The Church Council will make the final decisions for these funds. Additional application forms may be created by copying the enclosed form or contacting the church office. After this process is complete we will have future disbursements, as funds allow, every six months. Just a reminder that 30% of the gain in the fund will be reinvested to help grow the fund for future min- istry. 10% of the increase has been designated towards ministry outside of this congregation. That could be something in our community, synod, nation or world. The remaining 60% will be disbursed this fall. Any questions may be directed towards the Endowment Committee members: Danna Drescher, Donna Fulton, David Miller, Bob Quickel, or Pastor Jim. With the volatility of the stock market, there is no guarantee that funds will be available. However, we are hopeful based on the past few months’ financial returns.
