“And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased”
God has called us to be good stewards of the gifts that he has entrusted to us. Planned giving is a key way to practice biblical stewardship by designating a gift to be given in the future – usually through a will or a trust. This method of giving allows you to establish a personal legacy with an eternal impact. Because of your generous contribution, future generations will be encouraged to stand on the authority of the Word of God and proclaim the good news of the gospel.
Most people, when given the opportunity, would like to feel that they have made a lasting contribution toward a better world, that their lives have touched others – perhaps for many generations to come. That small touch of immortality – the quiet satisfaction of helping perpetuate something meaningful – is the rich reward enjoyed by many who have made legacy gifts for your church’s future. These gifts, made during the donor’s life or through one’s estate, strengthen the ability of your church to provide for future generations of members.
