Will and Estate Planning

Monday, October 29th at 5:30 pm

This event has been cancelled and we’ll reschedule at a later date.
Do you know what 60% of Americans have in common with Aretha Franklin and Prince? They are unprepared for the day we they won’t be here anymore. Not having a will or estate plan in place is poor financial stewardship. Join us for food, fellowship and a time to explore God’s word on life and death. We will learn about the importance of wills and estate planning and how to see it as a form of Biblical Stewardship.

We are asking you to choose a turkey (or turkeys) from the tree, purchase the item listed, and then bring them to the Fellowship Hall by Sunday morning, November 11th to be packed with others in a Feast Box. Each box will be delivered to one of our Growing in Grace families from Wahl-Coates Elementary and others in need – providing them with an entire Thanksgiving feast!
