MISSION ENDOWMENT SELECTS PROJECTS FOR 2016 FUND DISBURSEMENT! 

The Synod Assembly of 2015 authorized a Campaign for Mission as an expression of our
confidence that God has called us to serve the world. These important projects have been
selected by the Synod and the ELC Mission Endowment Committee. We will vote on this list of
projects for disbursement of 5% of our Endowment at the All Saint’s Potluck in November:


 Synod Help and Response Endowment (SHARE)
 Fund for Leaders in Mission
 Campus Ministry
 Lutheran Community Services Northwest
 The ELCA (National Campaign Support)
 ELCT-ULANGA KILOMBERO DIOCESE
TUMAINI LUTHERAN SEMINARY


In 2016 we are celebrating all the gifts donated to the Mission Endowment fund and honoring all of our members. To do that we will have a celebration potluck on All Saint’s Day (November 6, 2016) and the committee will describe to you 6 Lutheran projects (3 domestic and 3 international) that you will vote on. One domestic and one international project will get funded this year and we will truly Change the World!

  What else does the Committee do?
  Last year we teamed up with the Stewardship
  Committee to provide the Change the World
  Banks. If you don’t have one, see a
  committee member.












Last summer we helped the ELCW collect items for hygiene, baby, and school kits. We designate an item for every Sunday during the summer. You can help! Check out our list below. You can bring in items anytime this summer; there will be a box in the Bridge for your donations!!
