"Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you." (Matthew 6:4 NLT)
Southwood established an Endowment Fund in January 2004. The purpose of the fund is to enhance the mission of Southwood Lutheran Church apart from the general operation of the congregation. No portion of the income generated by the fund is used for the annual operating budget of the congregation.
Income from the Endowment Fund is used in 4 areas:
- Outreach into the community and Nebraska Synod
- Missions of the ELCA in this continent and worldwide
- New ministry opportunities within Southwood Lutheran Church
- Causes and programs which, at the discretion of the trustees, are consistent with the fund purpose of enhancing the mission outreach of Southwood Lutheran Church.
