Last will and testament: what is a testament?

A Testament is your Preamble - a statement of your Christian faith in your will. It is a wonderful gift - an opportunity to leave your thoughts and parting words. In such a difficult time for your loved ones, this can be such a comfort and powerful re-assurance of your faith and belief in your witness of the resurrection. Your Preamble to your will can be as simple as your favorite Bible passage, a personal story or a quote.

This very emotional time for your loved ones makes an opportunity for your words of faith to be their most powerful. It may an opportunity for someone to further seek or renew their own relationship with God.

Mission Statement

Planned giving presents the opportunity for our members to extend their financial support of our church beyond our lifetimes. Our goal is not to elicit a planned gift from every member, but to give every member the opportunity to make an informed decision about making a planned gift to Second Presbyterian Church.
