Mustard Seed Fund
New Opportunity to “Gift” BUMC

Endowment gifts are unique acts of love and faith. They connect us to the legacy of those who have come before us, and help us to leave our own legacy for the future.

The Gifts and Memorials Committee has established a new giving fund called the Mustard Seed Fund.  This new fund offers church members a new level of giving with which to join the BUMC gift community.   All gifts to this fund are undesignated and will be handled with the principal remaining intact, while annual earnings (per the G&M formula) are used to fund special requests for the church. The minimum gift is $1,000.

The Committee thanks Mr. Trevor “Bob” Johns for bringing this idea forward and for being the first  contributor to “seed” the fund. Our hope is many more members will participate in the Mustard Seed Fund, helping it to grow and fulfill church needs much like the parable of the mustard seed.

To make a gift to the Mustard Seed Fund, please make your check of $1000 or more payable to “Brecksville United Methodist Church” and designate on the check, “Gifts & Memorials- Mustard Seed.” Please forward your check to the church office. If you have any questions about the fund, you can contact the church office or any member of the Gifts & Memorials Committee.

Matthew 13:31-32
He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
