Your Legacy: Planned Giving for St. Peter's

No one likes to dwell on death. Though we know that our Redeemer, Jesus Christ, died and rose again so that we may have eternal life, it is human to want to avoid conversations and reflections about the end of our mortal lives. It is important to take some time now to reflect on what we want our legacy to be after we have left this earth.

As you consider what your legacy will be, think about the ministries that you are involved in and support at St. Peter’s. You can impact those ministries long after your lifetime by naming St. Peter’s Episcopal Church as a bequest in your will or in another type of planned gift. Whether it’s a percentage of your estate or a specific dollar amount, your precious gift can continue supporting your parish long after you have left this world.


The 1768 Society

The 1768 Society is a legacy society for people who have made a provision for St. Peter's Episcopal Church in their estate, no matter how large or small.  The 1768 Society is meant to recognize your extraordinary contributions to St. Peter's, and to bring awareness to the church's planning giving program.  To become a member, please complete The 1768 Society Enrollment Form found here and place it in the metal box located on the wall outside the Parish Secretary's office.
