First Christian Church in Colorado Springs, Colo., has tithed a portion of a recent bequest to Disciples Mission Fund, the common fund that supports the wider mission of the church. First Christian recently received a $111,000 bequest from the estate of a long-term church member. Using the congregation’s "Wills and Bequest" policy, 10 percent of the bequest is directed to Disciples Mission Fund. The name of the Endowment Fund is the Wallace and Guida Robertson Endowment Fund.
"First Christian Church has a long tradition of tithing 10 percent to Disciples Mission Fund," said David Van Heyningen, interim pastor. "We give, because in giving we discover that spiritual connection with a God who gives again and again. For the spiritual health of individuals and congregations it is important to give and to share our resources." For more on First Christian in Colorado Springs, visit: www.firstchristiancos.org
