Planned GivingScripture teaches us that as stewards of God's creation we are responsible for using what we have been given to benefit his kingdom. As Christians, we believe that ultimately everything in this world belongs to God, so it is only fitting that we return a portion of our blessings to him. Since we are only trustees of the possessions and wealth in our keeping, we must use them for a faithful purpose...for the good of all.
Planned giving is one way to express thanksgiving for the resources God has entrusted to us through our lifetimes. Through it, you can transfer your resources to future generations, continue your support to the church in perpetuity, and help strengthen our mission and ministry in the world. If you desire to arrange a gift to the church, once you have planned for your own needs and those of loved ones, we can help you explore options to determine a plan that best meets your situation and intent.
