God's Word cautions that we should not give undue attention to the accumulation of earthly treasures, but instead to store our treasures in heaven (Matthew 6:19-20 ) and that good parents leave an inheritance for .their children (Proverbs 13:22). With this Biblical support our church has expressed a desire to insure that this little church, we call home, should be a lasting place of worship in perpetuity. Those who have been blessed with earthly gifts have provided a place to see this prayer become a reality. Three kinds of gifts are provide for: 1) one time offerings such as an end of year tax deductible contribution 2) Yearly commitments and 3) Charitable Remainder gifts (usually part of a will).
Donations to the Endowment Fund are placed in a Trust that is managed by Thrivent Financial and supervised by a board of church members (not the church board that oversees the annual church budget). This separation of the management and supervision of the trust along with the strict by-laws of the trust insure that gift principle funds will be used only to cover uninsured losses and pastoral transition expenses if necessary. If you feel that preservation of an Interdenominational church in Mt Baldy is an important part of the fabric of our community, please support this effort with you donations.
