Give your congregation the gift of sustainability
Our lives are deeply connected to our Sunday worship, to the fellowship borne of community and to the ministry done in the name of Jesus. Our generous support sustains the congregation’s mission now, but we can leave a gift behind that will ensure the vitality and stability of the parish we love.
The Bishops’ Legacy Fellowship
In appreciation for making a planned gift, you’ll automatically become part of the Bishops’ Legacy Fellowship. This is one of the ways the ministry of legacy stewardship is spread to other church members. The Bishops’ Legacy Fellowship does not raise funds, but does encourage, support, and celebrate gifts made as part of an estate plan for the benefit of a parish church, the Diocese of Western Massachusetts or Episcopal institutions.
