Language for Wills & Trusts

Naming the The Mother Church in your will or revocable trust is the easiest way to support The Mother Church after your lifetime when you no longer have need of your assets.  

A gift through your Will, also known as a Bequest, or revocable trust can be:

  • Easy to arrange
  • Will not alter your current income or lifestyle
  • Can be easily modified to address changing needs

Below is the language to use in your Will or revocable trust, or share with your attorney:
