First United Methodist
Church of Gilford

We are a church of Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors

Thank You for the Generous Gift!

You may have heard, recently, that our church received a gift of $50,000 from the es-tate of the late Christene Peebles. We certainly are grateful to her for her faithfulness, fore-sight, and generosity. And it was a surprise to receive the gift so soon after her death. That is one of the advantages of a Trust over a Will: no probate and distributions are made without long delays. Another indication that she had received helpful advice and had made some good decisions. Hers is a fine example and is worthy of consideration.
Have you considered naming First United Methodist Church Gilford in your Will or Trust? You can designate your gift to the church for a specific purpose or you can leave it un-designated. And if you designate that it be added to the Endowment Fund, your gift will last forever as it continues to produce income for the church in generations to come. Give it some thought and prayer. Then, if it seems to you like the right thing to do, make an appointment with your attorney. And as you proceed to create a bequest to the church, you may even hear a still small voice within, saying "well done, good and faithful servant." (Matthew 25:21 & 23)
