Mission Endowment Fund
Messiah's Mission Endowment Fund was created by our congregation at our 2005 Annual General Meeting. Its purpose is to enhance the mission of the church by funding new ministries.
At the beginning of each year, members are invited to suggest projects to be funded by the interest earned by the Fund. Members present at the Annual General Meeting decide which project or projects will be funded.
All bequests and planned gifts to Messiah that are unrestricted are added to this Fund. The Fund was approaching $75,000 by the end of 2008.
Generations of Generosity
Messiah has a living endowment of faithful members with abundant gifts, and varied talents, whose mission is to share Jesus Christ with all people.
We believe, teach and confess that everything we have is a gift from God entrusted to our nurture and care, and that the Christian life is a life of stewardship. (Evangelical Declaration of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada)
