While a subject we understandably like to avoid, we all need to consider what will happen to us when we die or become physically or mentally incapacitated. The Bible speaks in terms of “getting our houses in order”. 2 Kings 20:1.
Having a proper estate plan is important for several good reasons. We do a disservice to our loved ones if we have not properly prepared for our incapacity or death. Leaving a mess for family to clean up is certainly not a good estate plan. Moreover, we are called to be stewards of all that God has given us. A proper estate plan is the final act of stewardship with respect to our resources.
The Stewardship Team has invited Attorney Jeff Durney to come and speak about the contents of a good estate plan. He will talk not only about Wills, but also Powers of Attorney, Health Care Proxies and Living Wills. He will provide an overview of the important decisions each of us needs to make and why these documents are so important even for people who may only have a modest estate. He will also answer questions you may have concerning how to select an executor, the use of trusts to protect assets, custody of minor children and how to provide for the church in your Will.
Please join us on November 6th at 12 Noon, in Fellowship Hall, for the presentation.
