    Estate Design Seminars
    Thursday, April 22
    2:00 or 6:00 PM via Zoom

    Estate Design Seminars
    Thursday, April 22
    2:00 & 6:00 PM, via Zoom

    When preparing financial plans, it is important to consider both the current and eternal perspectives. Our seminars are focused on future planning 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 the 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 plans or get started now!

    Choose the 2:00 or 6:00 PM session; registered participants will receive the Zoom meeting credentials by email.


    "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

    Calvary Stewardship Ministry is focused on helping individuals and families approach day-to-day finance and milestone life events with a smart and biblical foundation through classes, seminars, and confidential individual/family counseling.
