Resurrection Foundation

Our Resurrection Foundation is ready to help you plan a legacy gift for the future of our church's ministry and mission.

The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection Foundation, a Kansas nonprofit corporation, was established in 2002 to identify and develop opportunities for planned giving. Our purpose is to endow and support the future needs of our church’s ministry and mission by encouraging our members to remember Resurrection in their wills, trusts, retirement accounts and life insurance designations.

Church of the Resurrection members give generously of their time and resources to support Resurrection's vision of changing lives, transforming communities and renewing the church. The Foundation provides these generous members with the opportunity to further this vision through planned giving.

Leaving Your Legacy

The church of the Resurrection's mission is to build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians. As a member of the church, you have committed to a journey of knowing, loving and serving God as you grow in your faith. A gift to the Resurrection Foundation is one way of furthering your lifetime commitment and stewardship by remembering The Foundation in your will or trust or as a designated beneficiary of another asset. A Legacy Gift is a way to provide support to the church's mission and ministries in the future.

The Foundation ensures the long-range financial growth and sustainability of Resurrection. To do this, the Foundation and past donors have established various types of funds.

Secure the Future

The existing funds cover a broad spectrum of ministries, missions and future needs. Some of these funds include ...

  • Seminary Scholarship Funds
  • Missions Support Funds
  • Traditional Music Fund
  • Congregational Care Funds

... and many others that may fit your charitable intent. Creation of new funds that align with Resurrection goals and your intent is an option as well.

Renew our Church

John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, has been called the single most influential Protestant leader of the English-speaking world since the Reformation. We believe that as United Methodists we are called to continue to renew the church through leadership and generosity.

The Church of the Resurrection's John Wesley Legacy Society honors the dedicated group of members and friends who have chosen to include Resurrection in their estate or planned giving. You can join the John Wesley Legacy Society when you declare a gift to the Resurrection Foundation. Learn more about the John Wesley Legacy Society.
