Does life matter? If the Lord is leading you with a sense of desire to leave an estate gift to support “ministry”, who should receive that gift? Should it be aimed toward your congregation, or some other missionary or educational support? Would it help you to have someone ask you some questions to lead you to confident purpose? Your LCMS Foundation, Gift Planning Counselor can help you. Contact Scott Radden, your LCMS Gift Planning Counselor at (618) 977-4049 or Scott.Radden@lfnd.org for more information.
