Sturgis CP Church Legacy Fund

One genera​t​ion shall​ praise Your works to another and shall declare Your mighty acts. – (Psalm 145:4)




 “The vision of our legacy fund is simple. Our Lord has been faithful and generous to care for us in advance. We want to provide a way for faithful people to do the same.” 

Who We Are​

The SCPC Legacy Fund was created in 2017 to provide an endowment fund for members to provide gifts, bequests and a variety of financial trusts to support ministries of the Sturgis Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The fund operates by placing monies into an investment account under an outside investment manager who will consult and advise church trustees.

Community Is Our Legacy

 This fund allows our donors to “leave a legacy” for future ministry. Since 1910 Sturgis Cumberland Presbyterian Church has been serving this community and beyond in the name of Jesus Christ. 

By choosing to support this fund you will be stepping by faith into the future of SCPC. God will be faithful to honor that choice and order those steps.


Discipleship Is Our Legacy

Under the direction of the church session The Legacy Fund will support ministries beyond the normal church budget.

• Missions

• Children and youth

• Music and worship

• Build or make improvements to our existing facility.


Serving Is Our Legacy


Contributions to SCPC Legacy Fund may be given in a number of ways, such as:
