FOREIGN MISSION FUNDS (Keilman Trust)
First Presbyterian of Shelbyville wishes to remind anyone or any church considering going on a foreign mission trip that transportation (airfare) funds are available through the Keilman Foreign Mission Trust that the church administers. Contact the church for guidelines; the church phone is 217-774-3624. It should be noted that missioners who wish to receive travel funds BEFORE leaving on a mission trip should apply well in advance (about, say, three months or more ahead of time) in order to be approved for a grant. Otherwise, funds will be distributed as a reimbursement.
Keilman Fund Love Gift Program has been SUSPENDED. Information will be forthcoming about a new way that churches and individuals can request that Keilman Funds can be sent to their favorite foreign mission project.
Generosity Task Force
The primary goal of the PSEI Generosity Team is to support the congregations of our presbytery as they seek to raise funds for God’s mission through their congregation and presbytery. Our strategies for working toward this goal are (1) conducting workshops on generosity at regional and plenary presbytery meetings, (2) responding to invitations of clustered sessions and/or committees of our presbytery to address particular stewardship concerns, and (3) providing a set of recommended resources on congregational generosity/stewardship.
