If I can’t take it with me…then what?

Do you love the church and have an interest in leaving something for the work of the church?  The synod, assisted by CLWR is offering a wills and estates seminar to explain the benefits of providing faith based gifts.  Church council would like to gauge the interest by the congregation for such an event before accepting the invitation. For further details, see the article in the May edition of ‘The Messenger’ newsletter. Contact Witness and Mission Ctte Chair Joan Roszmann if you would attend this seminar.
