Estate gifts are a vital part of the on-going ministry at Grace United Methodist Church. Many people who may not be able to tithe during lifetime may consider tithing with a final legacy gift.
In addition to the peace and joy you have when making a charitable gift, there are certain current and/or future tax saving benefits you may be able to take advantage of depending on the type of legacy gift you make. For more information please call the church office at 717-566-2897 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for keeping Grace United Methodist in your prayers and your plans!
