We all have been blessed with possessions that serve us in our lifetime, and we also have the ability to create a legacy through gifts that will touch the lives of many others after our earthly days.
With strategic planning, we can greatly enhance our individual estate capacity to impact others. This can be done through a variety of vehicles: wills/bequest planning, estate preservation, beneficiary designations, life income agreements, as well as memorials and endowments. Remember, you’re never too young to think about these options!
St. Peters has benefited over the years when the church received estate gifts (one form of planned giving) from former members who entered the Church Triumphant. Our Luther Rose Society recognizes those individuals who have documented their intention to provide a part of their financial treasure to St. Peter’s via a planned gift.
Recently, the Stewardship Committee launched an effort to re-engage the congregation in this important stewardship topic of planned giving over the coming months. We hope you will choose to learn more about these planned giving options and prayerfully consider your commitment to St. Peter’s.
