In May, the LOTI Endowment Committee will launch an appeal to secure the final funds necessary to commission the forging of a new bronze bell. The new bell will include an improved ringing system so that it can be used from the sanctuary during worship services, as well as for tolling at weddings and funerals.
We have already received a generous gift of $5,000. The Endowment Committee will match all gifts up to $5,000 to reach the goal of $15,000. Our hope is to order the bell by early summer so that it can be forged and installed by All Saints Sunday this fall.
As you celebrate Memorial Day this year and remember those who have gone before you, consider a gift to the Endowment Fund in honor of your loved ones. Let their memory continue to ring in your ear and to call young and old to faith.
