Memorials

A Beautiful Way of Giving

Remembering Our Loved Ones

A gift in memory of a loved one can be a fitting tribute, and can also benefit a favorite passion.  Often, words seem an inadequate way to express our sympathy.  A memorial gift can be that unstated but deeply thoughtful expression of our feelings.

Eternal Life

Memorial Gifts can enable God's work long after a loved one has died, and continue what that special person represented while alive.  Your gift can also become a "Living Legacy."

A Memorial Gift can Support:

  • Worship
  • Education
  • Christian Service
  • Ongoing Programs
  • Capital Improvements
  • Endowed Memorials
  • Special Gift Options or Projects

Memorial Gifts are Convenient

Perhaps you were out of town, or simply unable to attend the funeral of a friend, relative or someone you admire.  A memorial can communicate to friends and family that you care.  A Memorial Gift can be a perfect expression of love.

Endowed Memorials

Large Memorial Gifts can be made or pledged over a period of time to establish an Endowed Memorial.  The endowed memorial can be "named" in the honor of a loved one, friend or even in your family name.

Endowed Memorials are permanent and perpetual because only the earned income (interest) will be used each year.

Endowments can be made in the form of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, cash and/or life insurance.

Taxes and Giving

Gifts to charity remain tax deductible and continue to provide a reliable tax planning opportunity.
