Attestation of Church Support for The Lift
I, Pastor Click here to enter pastor’s name, of the Click here to enter church name Church, attest that this church has discussed with its membership and voted in a church board meeting on Click here to enter date of church board vote to participate as a Constituent Church of The Lift (a community service organization supported by the Rocky Mountain Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists). We agree to participate according to the Constitution and Bylaws of The Lift related to Constituent Churches. This includes a commitment to formally supporting The Lift both financially and with volunteers, as long as we remain a Constituent Church. Our specific financial commitment is detailed below.
We agree that should there come a time when we no longer can or choose to participate as a Constituent Church of The Lift, which includes providing formal financial and volunteer support, we will give The Lift Board of Trustees a letter expressing our intent to end our membership. We recognize and agree that our membership as a Constituent Church with The Lift will end 90 days from the receipt of
the letter by the Board of Trustees, and that prior to ending our membership, we have an obligation to pay to The Lift any outstanding financial commitments we have made as a Constituent Church, including any such commitments for capital and building funds.
In return, The Lift agrees to provide support for our church’s community service activities and efforts through training and education for staff and members, food and clothing items for emergency and community needs, assistance with coordinating volunteers, and referrals to services and support our church cannot provide.

We understand how important our financial support is to the day-to-day operations of The Lift, and should we ever find that our designated amount of financial support becomes a hardship for our church, we will work closely with The Lift Executive Director and Board of Trustees to modify the amount in a way that does not create undue hardship for either party. Any such changes to our financial support will be voted on by our church board and go into effect no more than 30 days after such vote.
