Planning a Legacy How faithful people prepare

Planning a Legacy

Planning a Legacy is a holistic estate planning seminar that covers important matters for all adults. This complimentary seminar includes basic information about wills, funeral and memorial services, end-of-life planning, and legacy gifts. The goal of the seminar is to inspire participants to take their next steps in their estate planning and to see it as a part of their legacy. For some that may be an initial trip to an attorney; for others it may be a follow-up appointment, sharing their funeral plans with a loved one, or adding their church to their will.

The format is a 90-minute gathering with a meal, a presentation from the Foundation, and a Q&A with an attorney. Participants will receive a binder with helpful documents to reference and complete as they start or continue this process. The Foundation is pleased to reimburse churches for the meal and for childcare to be made available. Additionally, we created communication pieces for the local church to use when advertising the program, as well as follow-up with the participants.

All Saints Day 2023

All Saints Day

Every time we recite The Apostles Creed, we profess belief in the communion of saints.

All Saints Day falls on November 1 each year. Congregations usually schedule the celebration for the first Sunday of November or the last Sunday of October, depending on church schedules. This year, All Saints Day will be celebrated on Sunday, November 5, 2023.

The Methodist Foundation for Arkansas has assembled this resource guide to help church leaders and pastors plan and celebrate All Saints Day as part of their Sunday morning worship services and to help them combine All Saints Day with a Planned Giving invitation.
