LOL Legacy Members

Building the future one gift at a time

Mission Statement

To ensure the long-term viability of our church through legacy giving in order to build missions and ministries beyond our lifetimes.

Vision Statement

To educate and encourage future giving for the long-term sustainability of our church and to leave a legacy that will make a difference beyond our generation.

What is the Legacy Members Group?

The Lord of Life Legacy Members Group is built on the principle of giving, where we have the opportunity to give back to a church that has so greatly touched our lives, so as to make a difference beyond our time with it.

The Lord of Life Legacy Members Group recognizes and lifts up those who have included our church in their will and/or estate plan, helping to ensure the long-term care of the church, its mission and its ministries.

The purpose of a legacy gift is to provide means and sustenance to the church’s long-term viability beyond our lifetime.  These gifts will support and sustain the growth of current and future ministries within the church.  Whether it’s a recurring donation or a one-time gift from one’s IRA, will, estate, or life insurance policy, legacy gifts mark a milestone in the donor’s life, establishing a legacy in his or her walk of faith and ensuring others have the opportunity to worship for generations to come in this place that has been so important to so many.

If you have already set up contributions to Lord of Life in your estate planning, we want to thank you for your ongoing support of this church we so love!  Your gift is critically important in ensuring the long-term sustainability of Lord of Life. If you haven’t yet informed the church of your gift, please fill out the non-binding Letter of Intent for a Future (Legacy) Gift (located within this packet) This will also help ensure your gift is directed in ways that are important to you and your family.

How can I learn more about this?

Please consider joining many others in including your church in your estate plan, will, trust, IRA, or life insurance policy.

If you have not yet considered including our church in your will or estate plan, we prayerfully ask that you reflect on this option.  Your future gift will make a monumental difference in the life of this church and its work in the world.

Our parent Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, provides additional information and resources to aid in leaving legacy gifts. For more information, please visit the ELCA Foundation site.

We also encourage you to discuss this possibility and what it could mean for you with your estate planner or accountant.
