Established in 2010, RSLCS Foundation, Inc. is a 501c(3) organization that receives gifts and bequests in support of Risen Savior missions and ministries.
Gifts and bequests are managed and invested by professional money managers, preserving principal while earning interest, dividends and capital appreciation. All funds are maintained separately and independently from all other Church funds.
Recently, the Foundation grants supported Risen Savior's Following Missions:
Vacation Bible School Support
Our Risen Savior Children’s Ministry Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a fun learning experience, designed to teach biblical stories and principles. Children from the community and church participate in prayer and worship activities with others to develop a heart for service and a willingness to help those in need.
Ignite Youth Ministry attended the 2023 Jr. High Church Camp “Peace Quest” at Tonto Rim Church Camp in Payson, AZ. Students engaged in acts of service and kindness, while applying biblical teachings on peace. Students also developed a deeper understanding of peace as a Christian concept.
Risen Savior high school students (Impact Ministry) traveled to Austin, TX for a “Week of Hope” mission trip where they learned to further connect their faith to serving community needs. Our youth expanded their leadership skills, sense of teamwork and awareness of social responsibility.
LCMS Seminary Student
Learning and developing pastoral skills teaching people how to have a quality devotional life along with effective Bible study teaching. Honed skills that will assist with growing the church aligned to Lutheran theology and how to apply these skills to real life.
COFA is a U.S. based 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. For several years, Risen Savior has supported this organization's efforts to break the cycle of poverty in South Africa. Our Foundation's granted funds aligned to COFA orphanage programs.
