Endowment Giving, even in the present moment, is not designed to replace the weekly/monthly Current & Benevolence Offerings or the Mortgage Debt Retirement.

Pleasant Lutheran Church look like in another ten, twenty or even fifty years? Contributions made through the Mt. Pleasant Lutheran Church Endowment Fund help provide a living presence for our congregation of tomorrow.
