20 Year Anniversary Endowment Campaign:
Building a Legacy of Faith
The 2015 Endowment Anniversary Campaign; Building A Legacy of Faith celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Westminster Presbyterian Church Endowment. Our goal is to grow the Westminster Endowment from $1.9 to $5 million by 2020. This aspiring goal is rooted in the firm belief that a larger principal will strengthen the mission of Westminster and address our ongoing capital and building needs in a planned and orderly manner. Members and friends are invited to make a five-year pledge or other planned gifts that would be above and beyond giving to the annual Stewardship Campaign.
We will celebrate the commitments we have received in this ongoing campaign on Dedication Sunday, May 17. We are pleased to welcome the Rev. Dr. Lonnie H. Lee and his wife, Barbara, to worship and to a festive picnic on our front lawn. Dr. and Mrs. Lee have remembered Westminster's Endowment in their estate planning and he is excited to be a spokesperson for this campaign.
Those who invest in the Westminster Endowment Fund will become a part of the Albert Hale Circle. For more information, click here.
