Jesus taught that our love would be evident through where we spend our money. Here at LABC, we seek to live by our church’s purpose statement: Glorify God. Pursue People. We believe that to fully Glorify God, a financial commitment is involved. God sacrificed his only Son, so as believers, we sacrifice our time, talents, and money to Him. This sacrificial giving is what allows the church to Pursue People.
We are so grateful for friends like you, who with regular donations and sacrificial giving, help us fulfill and expand the reach of LAke Arlington Baptist Church (LABC). We receive constant inquiries from individuals involved with LABC who have heard about what God is doing through our ministry and it serves as a daily reminder that each member of our community around the world plays such an important role in fulfilling the work we set out to do at our inception 70 years ago. Over the past year or so, we’ve had several folks ask us if they could include LABC in their estate plan. And we have responded with an enthusiastic yes!
During this season we have discovered that well above 70% of Americans do not have a current will. And even those who do, typically forget to include the mission of their school, local church, or favorite ministries, such as LABC, in their estate plan.
Sometimes people feel as if it’s a choice between giving to their children or a ministry. But it may be more accurate to say that you are choosing between the federal government and charity. To take a look at how charitable giving in your estate plan might help you provide for your heirs, reduce taxes, and still bless your favorite charities, please invest ten minutes in using our My Legacy Planner. It is free, easy to use, and perhaps most important, confidential. No one here at LABC will be able to see your personal financial information, but it will help you see how you can avoid leaving unnecessary taxes to the federal government and, instead, bless your favorite ministries.
