Make a Legacy Gift

Planned Legacy Giving

sub_pic_1Gift Giving is an activity at the very heart of the Christian faith. To give something that is the result of one’s life’s work is to affirm that life itself is a sacred gift from God. Our accumulations are testimony to God’s goodness and giving is an appropriate response to affirm the source of these gifts.

The Planned Legacy Giving Program at First Church is a compliment to our current giving program. Rather than focusing on immediate needs, the Planned Legacy Giving program focuses on providing a longer-term source of funding for ministry that expands the role of the church in the community.

As you ponder end-of-life matters and make plans for the distribution of your estate please consider a charitable gift now or in the future.  When you have your estate planning documents prepared, we ask that you consider a bequest to the First United Methodist Church-Sarasota.
