from Steve Hancock

Dear Members and Friends,

In one of the most beautiful and compelling passages of scripture we are called to a special and joyful purpose. “Hear, O Israel: the Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.” (Deut 6:4-5) Jesus adds that we should love our neighbor as ourselves.

Just after these words, Deuteronomy reminds us of a truth we already know – that we live in cities that we did not build; that we drink water from wells that we did not dig; that we eat from vineyards that we did not tend. (Deut 6:10-11)

At Second Presbyterian Church, each of us are nurtured and shaped into disciples because of the work of those faithful saints who have come before us. We stand on the shoulders of giants. A program of planned giving is a way that we can continue to build on a strong foundation for those who will come after us.

This webpage will give you the information that you need to prayerfully consider extending the ministry of Second Presbyterian Church to future generations. Malinda Kirchner, our Director of Planned Giving, will be happy to talk with you, answer your questions, and help you think about various options for planned giving.

With great gratitude for the grace of God and for the faithfulness of God’s people,

Steve Hancock

Pastor/Head of Staff

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.
