2014 Benevolence Report

The King of Glory Mission Ministry Team recently announced the 2014 Benevolence Report, outlining which organizations the congregation is supporting through its missions giving. Below is a letter from the ministry team.


King of Glory congregation:

King of Glory’s 2014 operating budget allows for allocating 10 percent of the budget towards missions. Of that 10 percent, 40 percent is designated for local missions, 30 percent to world missions, 20 percent to the North American Lutheran Church and 10 percent to the deacon fund.

King of Glory’s Mission Ministry team is tasked with deciding which local and world organizations will receive those funds. As this team worked through the process they focused on our congregation’s mission and vision statements and made it a priority to make meaningful impacts to a handful of organizations. Your weekly giving enables our congregation to continually support God's mission here locally and also globally.

Below is the breakdown for 2014.
