After making provision for your loved ones, would you consider leaving a gift in your will to LifeWay Lutheran Church?

It’s one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can continue to support our mission of living Jesus’ love, sharing his hope with all and growing in grace together. Your gift is significant, no matter how big or small, and ensures that generations to come can hear the good news of Jesus Christ and be blessed through the ongoing mission and vision of LifeWay as we share his hope with all.

If you are about to make your Will, and would like to include a gift for LifeWay Lutheran Church, the appropriate wording is:

“I ________________________________ (your name) give and bequeath free of all duties, debts or taxes, __________________________________________ (Insert sum of money, residue of estate, % of estate, or property/shares/item) to LifeWay Lutheran Church (ABN 86 968 033 005) to support the ongoing mission and ministry thereof, and I declare that the receipt of an authorised officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my trustee/s for such a bequest.”

If you already have a Will you simply need to add a codicil at the end. The appropriate wording is:

“This codicil dated _____ is an addition to the Will of me, (full name). Other provisions contained in my Will are confirmed. I give, devise and bequeath LifeWay Lutheran Church (ABN 86 968 033 005) __________________________________________ (Insert sum of money, residue of estate, % of estate, or property/shares/item) for the ongoing mission and ministry thereof, and I declare that the receipt of an authorised officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my trustee/s for such a bequest.”

Wills and codicils must be dated, signed, properly witnessed and thoughtfully stored.
