Focus On the Foundation

The Foundation exists for one reason and one reason only, and that is to serve our church, its ministries, and its members.

Consisting of more than  40 separate endowments, each benefiting a specific aspect of our church or its ministries, the Foundation supports Youth Programs and Young Adult Activities, Music Ministries, Austin’s Army, Facility Maintenance and Repairs, Several Lecture Series, Numerous Scholarships, Deaf Ministries, Benevolence, the ArtReach Gallery in Watson Hall, and the Shepherd’s Garden, just to name a few.

Each quarter, we spotlight a different endowment and the many tangible ways it has benefited Lovers Lane.
