On Sunday, May 6th we celebrated Legacy Sunday at St. Stephen’s. We discussed how a Legacy Gift differs from other gifts given to St. Stephens during the sermon and again at coffee hour. Legacy gifts are generally made through:

  • A Bequest in a Will
  • A Life Income Gift, such as a pooled income fund, a charitable gift annuity, or a charitable remainder trust
  • Gifts of Special Assets (real estate, stock, life insurance, retirement accounts)

We concluded the sermon at both services by asking parishioners to reflect on the inscription on the Legacy Plaque.
