First Church Endowment Fund
The purpose of the Endowment Fund is to enhance the ministry of The First Church of God, primarily by funding activities beyond the general operation of the congregation. All principal amounts will be retained and invested. Only a percentage of the fund is granted for ministry use. No portion of the principle will be used. The Endowment Fund is “The Gift That Keeps on Giving”.
The Endowment Fund has granted over $110,500 to such ministries and initiatives as:
Children’s Worship Ministry, Women’s Ministries Just for Joy Bible Study, Child Evangelism Fellowship, Staff and Lay Leader Development, Puppet Ministry, Radio Ministry, Warner Camp Scholarships, Missions, Young Adult Ministry, FCOG Boy Scout Troop, and community outreach, just to name a few of the many initiatives.
Christian stewardship involves the faithful management of all the gifts God has given to humankind—time, talents, the created world and money, including accumulated assets. Christians can give to the work of the church through bequests in wills, charitable remainder and other trusts, charitable gift annuities, assignment of life insurance and transfers of property (cash, stocks, bonds, real estate).
Please give to the Endowment Fund, and help us help ministries thrive. Simply mark your contribution as going to First Church of God with Endowment Fund in the memo line, leave us in your will.
