A Lasting Legacy
Rev. Katie Pearce glows when she talks about the legacy First UMC, Morrilton, receives from the late Lt. Gov. Nathan Gordon's endowment through The Methodist Foundation for Arkansas.
"In the past, some thought it would have been better to have the $500,000 gift in a lump sum," said the senior pastor. "But after all these years, the principal is still making money for us, and we receive around $21,000 each year to support church ministries. That makes the interest from the endowment one of the top ten annual givers to our church."
A tool that is helping others prepare their legacy is the free wills planning document and seminar provided by The Foundation. Contact Janet Marshall at The Foundation to learn how your church can schedule a free seminar or how you can receive a free wills guide.
