The Stewardship Committee together with the Legacy Circle of Grace Committee welcomed 8 new Legacy Circle of Grace Members with several more in process.
There have been several questions about the process.
Once the office receives a completed Legacy Circle of Grace form, a welcome letter on behalf of the Pastors and Church Council is mailed. This welcome letter also contains a Legacy Circle of Grace Permission Form to publish my/our names as listed together with a self addressed postage paid return envelope. If you wish to remain anonymous you do not return the form and we will not publish your names.
Both those who allow us to publish as well as those who wish to remain anonymous will receive an invitation to our annual dinner and receive their remembrance wood replica of Grace Lutheran Church. You can see an example of the wood replica by downloading the PDF titled “Legacy Circle of Grace Wood Replica” located under the “Downloadable Forms” in the right hand column.
We have also received questions on how you can become a member and we welcome those inquiries. There are several ways to become a member.
- A will naming a gift of Cash, Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Real Estate etc.
- A Beneficiary Product (Life Insurance, IRA, Retirement Account, etc.)
Grace Lutheran Church wants to be sure we are moving forward and making decisions that keep us relevant to all our congregation members. We want you to understand the importance of your financial generosity to the church. Stewardship is not about asking for money, it is about sharing a vision for everything we do together in God’s name and inviting you to be a part of it. We encourage you to think about when the time comes for Grace Lutheran Church to carry on its ministries without you and your weekly support. Even when the outlook is uncertain there is strength in members who join together to plan for the future.
