Foundation News: February 2021
Welcome to Lent!
Don't miss out on these opportunities:
Scholarship deadline is March 1: Please encourage the high school seniors and college students from your congregation to check out our website and see if they are eligible for any of our scholarships. Thanks to our generous donors, we have over $200,000 to give for the 2021-2022 school year!
Spring Saving Grace classes have started: But we are still accepting new students! You are able to watch recordings of previous classes and attend future classes via Zoom. Clergy who attend or watch all nine sessions will receive one CEU! Learn more and register on our website.
Looking for a low risk investment option? Our Building Fund Trust offers certificates for one, three and five year investments, with options to have interest re-invested or paid out. We recently looked at our certificate rates compared to bank CD rates (chart below accurate as of February 15, 2021), and ours are much better! Check out our website to apply as a church or an individual.
Meet Johni Hays, your expert estate planner! Appointment slots are still available to meet with Johni through Our Gift to You, our innovative estate planning program. We have partnered with Thompson & Associates to offer you this complimentary, confidential service. Email or call us to learn more and set up your meeting!
