Giving away money is easy; giving it away wisely requires discernment. Well-placed gifting, regardless of the size, can make a tremendous difference and create an extremely satisfying experience for a donor. The Church of the Brethren relies on your gifts and your careful consideration for the future of our local congregation secures our ability to continue our mission. After our all-church potluck on August 26, Becky Goss, McPherson County Community Foundation will offer ideas for planning your giving and explain the endowments invested for the McPherson Church of the Brethren.
