                                Deadline for the application is July 31, 2012

                      The funds are designated to fulfill the mission of the congregation.

                                              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.
