FPCE Endowment Fund
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
What calls your heart as you walk in faith at First Presbyterian Church? Is it ushering, working as a Deacon or Stephen Minister, or singing in the choir? Or perhaps it might be leaving a legacy gift in your Will for First Presbyterian Church of Edmond?
Perhaps, like me, you have long held a dream of furthering God’s Kingdom by “opening doors” to new ministry and discipleship opportunities at First Church. Until the Endowment Fund was established, the Church had no formal program by which to turn those dreams into reality. Today the Endowment Fund Program is here to assist us in doing not only that, but keeping those dreams funded into the future.
In this brochure you will find examples of what we refer to as “Ways of Giving”, any of which may be a way for you to open that door. I encourage you to read them and ask questions to any of us on the Endowment Board as you may have them. We strongly recommend, however, that you discuss any significant gift with a professional advisor before taking action in order to determine if it is in your best interest as well as that of the church.
The Endowment Fund has established a relationship with Texas Presbyterian Foundation for the purpose of providing investment and custodial services of Church funds. They have a 90 year history in providing this kind of support for churches and more about them is provided in this brochure.
Our Endowment Program currently consists of six accounts that are described in more detail in the following pages. The accounts are open to contributions of any amount at any time. We believe strongly that one need not be wealthy to be charitable and all gifts are appreciated by the spirit in which they are given.
We hope you will consider joining us in ensuring that doors are opened to new ways of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ at First Presbyterian Church of Edmond.
Yours in Christ,
Paul M Thomson
