On February 12th, 2023, grants from the Extended Ministries Endowment Fund at Faith were distributed.
We are grateful to Ralph Colrud who created the fund with a $100,000 principal gift from which interest is distributed to non-profit organizations dedicated to people helping people.
Recipients this grant cycle are, left to right - Joe - Portage County Literacy, Andrew- Crossways Camping Ministries, Cindi - Stevens Point Warning Center, Cliff - Rosholt Area Threshermen, and Dana - Portage Co. Boys & Girls Club. Missing from photo: Cathy - The Lakes, Inc.
Additional donations to the Fund are encouraged which will allow the Fund to help even more organizations.














Help for the Homeless is a joint WELCA project collecting items for Evergreen Community Initiatives, specifically The Place of Peace which assists people in need.
Pictured from left to right are Betsie Graham, Gail Allen and Tiffany Krueger who was present for the endowment grants at Faith.




For those of us on the Extended Ministries Endowment Fund of Faith Lutheran Church the fourth Sunday of March is probably the highlight of our year.
On that day we are privileged to grant funds to organizations who endeavor to help others thanks to Ralph Colrud who made this possible by gifting the congregation with $100,000 for this express purpose.
Only a constitutionally mandated percentage of interest is used for these grants so the fund will remain solvent in perpetuity.
This year we are pleased to have photos of the distribution.

Please remember those less fortunate than us.

Baskets are located in the narthex at Faith for the collection of food and other household items.

These items go to the Rosholt Food Pantry who distributes them to those in need.

You might think there aren't many in our area who are in need..........but you'd be wrong.

Faith has a hearing loop and wireless earphone system which works anywhere within the sanctuary.

The system is amazing and will be of great benefit to those who choose to use emoticon

Even in large cities churches that sport handbell choirs are few and far between. The Stevens Point/Plover metro area, which population exceeds 35,000, can claim only two churches that have handbell choirs. They are St. Paul's United Methodist and St. Paul Lutheran Church so it's quite a big deal for a smallish country church to muster enough dedicated folks to staff a handbell choir much less do a good job of it. The proof is at the links below!

The first link is for a video which shows the choir doing a portion of Silent Night.

The second link is an audio only file.
