“Blessing Beyond Bounds: 
Crafting Your Legacy in a Faith Context”

Join Grace member and financial planner Jeff Cribbs, Pastor Bruce Modahl, and Stewardship Director Clyde Walter for three Adult Ed sessions exploring planned giving techniques and the stewardship of assets. These sessions are for everyone--you don’t have to be wealthy to make a planned gift or to consider how to align your personal values with your longterm financial plans. Topics include “Wealth in the Context of Faith” (Feb. 3), “Your Personal Values” (Feb. 10), and “Tools and Techniques for Faithful Giving” (Feb. 17).  Light refreshments will be provided.

Also during the Adult Ed hour: The Sunday Morning Bible Study continues its discussion of the Book of Daniel, led by Bob Jandeska. Making Disciples meets in Pastor Modahl's office.
