The Slater Bethlehem Lutheran Church Mission Endowment Fund Committee is now accepting applications for Mission Endowment Fund grants. Grant applications are due March 15.

Grants can be applied for, and will be awarded, in four different areas: congregational, local, state and global projects. Grant awards will be based on how closely the application projects support the mission of Bethlehem Lutheran Church: Believing - in God’s promises; Serving - God and neighbor; Living - in God’s grace through faith and Welcoming - all to Jesus Christ.

Grant amounts for 2014 will range from approximately $100-$1,500 and grant dispersals will be completed by April 30.
