Eighty years ago, the congregation that is now known as Roseville Lutheran Church was formed. Eight decades later the world has changed! But the promises of God have not.

Throughout the history of the world, God has invited us to participate in the promises that are bestowed upon us. These promises of presence, peace and hope are the threads that weave us together as a people of faith.

This is not an inactive faith, this is an active faith in which we are called to live: in our church, in our homes, in our communities, and - indeed, in our world.

This fall we are asking you to prayerfully consider all of the promises of God that have sustained you and kept you throughout your life. God is generous in God’s promises, and we are called to respond in gratitude. Your financial gifts change lives in ways you can never imagine and are one way in which you live out God’s promises to an ever-changing world.

Thank you for your gifts, given in gratitude to a generous God. The God of future and promise. The God of generosity and hope.

What is an annual appeal?

As with many non-profits, churches set aside time in their year dedicated to raising funds for the yearly mission and ministry of the church. For some, this is a time when they pledge their gift for the coming year. For others, this may be a time to become a sustaining giver or increase a sustaining gift. Sustaining gifts help us plan our budget and spend our dollars wisely to do the most ministry possible.

All gifts given support and sustain our day-to-day ministries which include: staffing; building maintenance and utilities; technology and supplies; communications; and educational and community ministries. These gifts also support new initiatives for ministry including:

  • Enhanced Adult Education opportunities
  • Engagement ministries for children, youth, and adults
  • Outreach ministries with our local ministry partners

Simply put, gifts given to Roseville Lutheran Church ARE the gifts that sustain and support our mission and calling to “Love God • Love your neighbor” and to be “a community united by grace.”

“When I think about giving to the church,
(I know) our time and resources
go directly to help others.”

How Can I Participate?

We know and understand that giving to the church is a private decision, and sharing your gifts from God is personal. We are asking all members and friends to complete an Intent to Give (see bottom of this page) so that we can plan for the coming year.

We ask that you prayerfully consider:

  • The generous gifts given to us by a generous God
  • Participating as a regular giver (weekly, monthly or yearly)
  • Giving thanks for this community of faith
Become a Sustaining Member of Roseville Lutheran Church

Sustaining members are those who provide a gift of any amount on a regular basis. Some examples of this are:

  • Recurring gifts through online giving: www.rosevillelutheran.org/givenow
  • Recurring gifts through offering envelopes
  • Regular gifts from IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions, Donor-Advised Fund grants, or stock gifts
Are You Already a Sustaining Member?

Thank you for your gifts! All gifts given, large or small, are used to support our mission and vision. Please complete an Intent to Give card (or go to www.rosevillelutheran.org/annual-appeal) and prayerfully consider increasing your recurring gift by 5-10%. 

“We were grateful to be in a position
to increase our gifts to RLC for
those in need in our community.”

How is pRAISE RLC Different from the Annual Appeal?

Traditionally, the annual pRAISE RLC campaign has been held in the spring to help close the gap in the ministry budget. In the last few years, the pRAISE RLC campaign has become a way to celebrate our work at RLC and in the community by highlighting different ministry areas throughout the five-day campaign, and a way to raise funds to support new or unbudgeted initiatives.

“I can feel that when I give it feeds my soul.”

In ministry year 2021-2022, the pRAISE RLC campaign raised funds to complete our live-streaming video booth, for the repair or replacement of our organ, and support for our day to day ministries. We are excited for our next pRAISE RLC campaign and will share more information in early 2023.
