Our Response to God’s Love

Everything about us belongs to God.  When we give of our time, talent, and treasure for the sake of others, God rejoices.  Our generosity is an expression of our gratitude to God.  When we give, we grow in our faith and trust in God’s abundance.  Thank you for your generous gifts to Lord of Life!

Where to Give:

General Fund
 
This is Lord of Life’s primary operating fund. The General Fund provides money for staff salaries, to pay the mortgage and utilities, and to support the ministries of Lord of Life in our local and global community.
 
Capital Fund
 
The Capital Fund supports  priorities established by a Capital Campaign, such as debt reduction and special facility and outreach projects.  The recently completed “Welcome One Another” capital campaign raised over $1.5 million that was used to expand and renovate the church, pay-down the mortgage, and support a variety of outreach ministries.
 
Endowment Mission Funds
 
With your contribution – either now or upon your death with a bequest or beneficiary designation – to one or more of three Endowment Funds, you leave a lasting legacy that supports Lord of Life’s mission in perpetuity using income and capital appreciation from fund investments. Learn more.
 
Designated Giving
 
Through designated giving, you can support a specific ministry or need in Lord of Life.  The money is combined with other funds donated for a similar purpose and kept in a restricted account until used. One such ministry is the “Pastor’s Discretionary Fund”, which is money used by our pastors to meet the urgent financial needs of congregants and others in our community.  Other examples include the Food Pantry, Global Barnyard, Music, etc.
