    Estate Design Seminars
    Thursday, October 26 | 2:00 & 7:00 PM

    Estate Design Seminars
    Thursday, October 26 | 2:00 & 7:00 PM
    Banquet Room
     
    "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." — 2 Corinthians 4:18
     
    When preparing financial plans, it is important to consider both the current and eternal perspectives. Our semi-annual seminars are focused on day-to-day money management and key components of estate design in light of God's Word. In addition to addressing typical concerns, you will be invited to ask yourself — what would the Lord have me do? Objectives include:
    • Strengthening — not straining — family relationships
    • Taking an all-encompassing approach
    • Care & guardianship of minor children
    • Avoiding negative impacts on beneficiaries
    • Tax considerations
    • Achieving greatest Kingdom impact

    There is NO cost for the seminar, and the process is absolutely confidential. You’ll benefit no matter your stage of life—whether you’re starting a family or reviewing plans as an empty-nester. Either update your current will and estate plan or get started now.

    Estate Design Seminars take place in the spring and fall. Choose 2 PM or 7 PM.

    REGISTER for 2:00 PM

    REGISTER for 7:00 PM
