Community Grows Here

2023 Commitment

The theme for this year’s stewardship campaign is “Community Grows Here.”  What better theme for our Church as we emerge from the pandemic and reconnect, renew, and rededicate ourselves to community?

Our goals for the Emmanuel 2023 Commitment are 50 commitments from giving households who had not submitted a commitment for 2022 and total commitments of $1,240,000.

Planned Giving with Background

Provide Long-Term Stability for Emmanuel and Our Ministries

Planned giving refers to gifts made either during a donor’s lifetime or as a “legacy” or charitable estate gift, effective upon the donor’s death.

Planned gifts may be either designated for deposit into the ELC Endowment Fund or made directly to Emmanuel Lutheran Church.

In 2020, the ELC Endowment Fund was established for the purpose of encouraging planned gifts to provide sustained, long-term support for Emmanuel and its various ministries.

Other Ways to Give
