The Wisdom of Pre-Planning your Funeral at St. Luke's
Tuesday, March 15, 12:00 p.m.
(Activities Room)
When you stop to think about it, we spend a lot of time and energy planning: We plan for retirement. We plan our vacations. We do estate planning. In addition, I have assisted many of you with your funeral plans.
  
It makes good "faith" sense to plan ahead for funeral arrangements. You are invited to attend a seminar at St. Luke's that is designed to help you with these arrangements.
  
Some of the topics we will cover are:
  
  • Things that must be done
  • Decisions
  • Veterans Benefits Information
  • A Will
  • Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney
  • Funeral and Cemetery Instructions
  
It is my pastoral hope that this seminar will help to eliminate some of the stress and expense that often happens when a death occurs. With proper planning, you can protect those you love and experience peace of mind.
  
This seminar will be presented on Tuesday, March 15 at 12:00 p.m. A light lunch will be provided. Please make a reservation by simply calling the church office during regular office hours.
