Legacy Ministry Sunday

Legacy Sunday

Teach your congregation how to model generosity and have a Legacy Sunday at your church using these resources


Using the documents below, you can design an entire Sunday morning service on generosity and stewardship, as well as provide informational resources to your congregation about how they can use planned and deferred giving with the Foundation to bless the work of the Lord.

Through your church's Legacy Sunday, you can teach your congregation about how they can give in creative ways to support your church's ministry and mission. The Foundation is available to partner with churches to help donors give both monetary and non-monetary gifts in creative ways such as charitable gift annuities, personal giving funds, trusts, endowments, bequests, and more.

You can promote and plan for Legacy Ministry Sunday using the resources provided below.
