Nativity Endowment Fund



"I have held many things in my hands and I have lost them all; but whatever I've placed in God's hands, that I still have." - Martin Luther

The general purpose and intent of the Endowment committee is to “Make Christ Known” through ministry initiatives within Nativity, ministry to the larger church or community that surrounds Lutheran Church of the Nativity, and scholarships for Nativity members attending seminary, ELCA camps, colleges and Universities. The needs of many are carefully examined and grants are awarded after prayerful consideration.

Thank you to all those who support the mission of the endowment committee by
making donations or are willing to serve on the committee.
