Scripture implores us to “pray unceasingly”. Many of us pray as we begin and end
our day, as we grocery shop or put gas in
the car, and while we do a myriad of other things in our busy lives. Other than
Sunday mornings, we don’t often get a
chance to sit down, study the word, lift
our voice in song, and spend time in
prayer together with other believers.
Consider joining us at prayer night every
other Tuesday at 7pm for one hour in
the Life Center. The next gathering is
Tuesday, July 9th.

ESTATE/GIFT PLANNING YOU CAN HAVE
Today, Tomorrow and Forever…
LIFE INSURANCE: You probably own life insurance to protect your loved ones or a business interest you own. As your children grow up, their
need for protection changes. Your life insurance
can be an excellent way to include an affordable
gift to the Lord’s work or coordinate with your
charitable objectives in your estate plan.
Your gift can be made by simply including St. Peter Lutheran Church and its Endowment Fund and
other ministries that you support as a beneficiary
on your life insurance. By making a charity the
owner of the policy, you may also benefit from
some income tax savings now.
If you are interested in including a gift to the Lord’s
work using the tool of life insurance, please contact Ray Pagels, our Christian Gift Planning Counselor at 224-387-3857 or email [email protected]
