Our budget is more than how we pay to keep the lights on in the building; it is how we help to shine the light of Christ into the greater world. This narrative budget not only tells about our life together as a community, it celebrates accomplishments and points toward future goals. Take a look at the narrative budget as well as more details about the stewardship campaign for 2021. As we have moved through this season of pandemic, ministry at Southminster Presbyterian has continued in new ways. The narrative budget speaks to some of the ways in which we have adapted to this time in history through our Worship, Pastoral Care, Evangelism, Mission and Christian Education.
The Southminster Presbyterian Church Endowment is an important part of our funding for mission. The Endowment allows us to take advantage of ministry and mission opportunities that are not included in our regular budget. Some of the components of our Endowment are designated—Music, Mission, Christian Education, and Church Facilities. The largest component of the Endowment is the General Endowment which does not have a specific designation, giving flexibility to finance special opportunities in mission that may arise. Thanks to the prudent oversight of our Endowment Committee, the Endowment Fund continues to grow.
The Southminster Legacy Society has been established to honor the act of giving to God and assuring the future of our ministry to people in Christ’s name. It provides an opportunity to commend and graciously thank those who have made a financial commitment in their estate plan for our church. Several members have since joined the Legacy Society and have participated in both educational and social opportunities as a result. Anyone can become a member of the Legacy Society by notifying Southminster that you have included the church in your will or estate plan.
