A Windfall To Church

What does a thriving debt-free church do with a windfall of $342,625? A 74-year-old widow left the sum to Bethel Baptist Church of Toronto with the provision that half be spent on the local church and half be given to missions. The congregation will decide what to do with the money at its annual meeting this month. Meanwhile, the Rev. Roy Cook is worried: “I don’t want the money to be a bane on the church. People sometimes think because a church is endowed there’s no reason to give.”

“Christian living,” he adds, “shrinks along with their giving.”
