ESTATE PLANNING WITH OUR CHURCH IN MIND
.


Our local church and Conference have always been a big part of our lives.

We both were raised in the church, benefited from the Adventist educational system and consider ourselves blessed for having done so.

We enjoy supporting our local church through giving of our time and finances.

What a blessing the church's work can be when everyone participates in the divinely-set system of tithing and offerings.

This affects every area of the church's ministry such as Summer Camp, Education, Sabbath Schools, Evangelism, Health Ministry, etc. Besides regular giving, the church also benefits through estate planning.

"Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full …" Luke 6:38

This year we had our first baby boy and making a Will became a priority! We heard good things about Wills being done through the BC Conference and chose to go that route.

The Conference guide is easy for anyone to follow in making a Will. It enabled us to decide exactly how to distribute our estate and specify how we would support our local church and Conference.

Future ministries of the Church can be sustained in part through estate planning. And why should we not do so? All that we are blessed with in this life is from God.

Giving back a portion of our blessings to the church through estate planning makes perfect sense. What a privilege to help the Church advance its ministry!
