A message from your Permanent Endowment & Special Gifts Committee
Joe & Nancy – A hypothetical story
When my husband, Joe, passed away a few years ago I was devastated, of course, but grateful that he saw to it that the fruit of all our hard work was taken care of. We ran a small business for 40 years and were lucky enough to pass it on to our children. My Joe was meticulous about financial planning, so he made certain we would live comfortably during our retirement. According to our kids I have done a great job at managing my income since the death of my husband, so I have more than enough to give away. Once the kids and grandkids are taken care of, I can’t think of any better place I’d want the blessings of God bestowed upon us to go, than to Seaside United Methodist Church.
As I finish my planning on this earth, I want to honor Joe and give glory to God. I know that giving some of my estate to the church is an important way to love others by equipping God’s Ministry here on Earth, just as Joe would have wanted. This is our Legacy to Seaside United Methodist Church to help carry forward the Christian message.
