ENDOWMENT BOARD The Resurrection Endowment fund is a unique fund that the principle is NEVER spent. The investment income is used to compliment the church mission and support the community.

The principle is still growing as additional donations are received, most commonly through memorials, wills and estates. The fund has been around for over 20 years, and the original donations are still intact and generating investment income.  The investment income supports many projects and missions at LCR.  Members: Steve Jacobson (chair), Nicci D’Amour, Gayle Wint, Mary Hauch
