St. Luke Lutheran Church was blessed with a bequest from the estates of two longtime members, Max and Florrie Stockman. Through their generous gift, St. Luke has established an Endowment Fund with the purpose of enhancing the church mission outreach apart from the general operating budget of the congregation.
Through the original investment, along with additional gifts and bequests, the Endowment Fund is able to provide perpetual income (up to 5% annually) to support educational, religious, and charitable purposes supported by St. Luke Lutheran Church. There is also a separate scholarship fund for seminary students.
The 2021 Endowment application will be available in the near future. Applications are due by December 31st, 2020.
