Wills Emphasis Sunday » April 30

Wills Emphasis Sunday is the fifth Sunday in April and we will have a Minute for Mission given by Rick Rickman.

A will represents a person’s final wishes and intentions. After providing for your loved ones, one might properly consider one final testament of faith through a bequest in your will that provides enduring support for the vital work of the church.

The Texas Presbyterian Foundation is well prepared to assist donors and congregations with gift planning and permanent funds ministries. Learn more at
