Financial Stewardship & Generosity

Transfer the Blessings Ministry

How can you touch lives today, tomorrow, and forever?

A recent article states that seven out of ten people do not have a will or living trust. Our Transfer the Blessings ministry is committed to providing support and comprehensive expertise needed to wisely plan how blessings to family are transferred.

The wise transfer and stewardship of these blessings to family and ministries can have an impact today, tomorrow and forever. Our faith in Jesus gives us a certainty in eternity. With the help of Transfer the Blessings, we can make wise plans for the way we affect the future for our loved ones! Read more.

Lutheran Extension Fund

Have you ever wondered what the Lutheran Church Extension Fund is all about? LCEF is more than the "bank of the Missouri Synod". Your investments serve a dual purpose: earning a fair rate of return by utilizing various financial instruments and LCEF provides low-cost loans and services to LCMS ministries, helping them spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. Currently there are more than 100 Christ Lutheran households that have $1,000,000+ invested at LCEF.

Invest with LCEF so more people hear the gospel! Offering 3% fixed rate over 2 years on $500-$5000 for first-time or past LCEF investors. Brochures at the Biblical Generosity Display. Visit lcef.org or contact Tom Grunow, ext. 107.
