Benevolences (Ministry beyond our Campus):
In addition to the portion of our ongoing spending plan that Resurrection shares with the wider church, there are also special giving opportunities through benevolences beyond our congregation to ministry partner organizations such as Lutheran Social Services, Lutheran World Relief and the Rwanda School Project.
In giving to the Discipleship in Action Fund or Benevolences, you may request a designated use for your gift noting a specific purpose. Designated giving is welcome, but undesignated gifts are especially helpful in meeting immediate, and often unexpected, needs. To give to one of these funds, please go to the online giving page.
Special Giving Opportunities (Discipleship in Action Funds)
From time to time there are special ministry needs or for a special purpose within the congregation such as the Angel Fund, major property repairs, children and youth, campus development (mortgage). To give to one of these funds, please go to the online giving page.
