MISSION & ACTION
PLANNED GIVING COMMITTEE
The goal of the Planned Giving Committee is to encourage Church members to consider planned gifts to the Church during their lifetime or through their estates. Such gifts can be designated for specific purposes or left undesignated. The Pilgrim Heritage Fund (PHF) exists as an established means to receive and distribute undesignated gifts and bequests. The Planned Giving Committee administers the PHF. The purpose the PHF is to enhance the mission of Somers Community U.C.C. by awarding grants for Christian education, community outreach, identity (including capital expenditures) and missions projects. This fund is separate from the annual operating budget and stewardship.
The Relationships Committee are charged with the task of serving as confidential liaison between the Pastor, professional staff, and church members for the purpose of advice, support, advocacy, and evaluation. We also keep the membership records up to date, fill the positions of officers and committee members, and provide a budget to the Resource Committee at the end of the year.
