Bulletin Inserts Promote Development Fund
The Georgia United Methodist Foundation has developed two bulletin inserts that explain how the Development Fund supports the growth and expansion of United Methodist churches and entities in Georgia.
Download the bulletin inserts entitled “Do Well While Doing Good” and “What Does It Take to Build a Church?” now or call the Foundation at 770-449-6726 or 877-220-5664. The Foundation hopes that churches will use the bulletin inserts to help bolster the growth of the Development Fund.
“The Development Fund is a vital ministry that has the potential to benefit every church within the North and South Georgia conferences,” said Foundation president the Rev. Charles W. Savage II. “We hope our churches will be willing to play a role in building awareness of the Development Fund.”
Development Fund investors will earn higher returns than other investment vehicles such as bank CDs or Money Market accounts while 100 percent of their money will be used to provide lower than market rate loans to churches and agencies. It’s a win-win for everyone, especially United Methodist churches that need the financial resources to refinance debt or build, expand or renovate their facilities.
Effective July 1, 2012, new investors now earn 2.35% on 4-year certificates; 1.90% on 3-year certificates; 1.40% on 2-year certificates; and 1.20% on 1-year certificates. The minimum investment is $5,000.
