Putting Your House in Order
A Great Gift for Your Loved Ones: Putting Your House in Order
Sunday, April 29th | 4:00-6:00pm
Cost: $10 for Materials
Do you have a will? Have you thought about who should have your most precious possessions after you have died? Would you like to greatly relieve the stress upon your families when it comes time to plan your funeral? Do you know the tax advantages of remembering the church and other charitable organizations in your legacy giving?
If you are interested in questions like these, join us for this workshop called Putting Your House in Order, sponsored by the Texas Methodist Foundation. In addition to addressing some of the questions above, the workshop is meant to prepare you for a visit to the professionals who can most help you with your particular wills and estate planning questions. The workshop, led by Rev. Carol Montgomery, Area Representative of North Texas for TMF, includes a workbook in which a person can record all the important information that will help loved ones with funeral planning and with the probate process.

Living Love When We Disagree
Women’s Bible Study
Thursday Mornings at 9:15am or Evenings at 7:00pm
3-Week Study Beginning April 30th
Relationships are messy. We’re all different and imperfect, and we can struggle to get along–especially with those who disagree with us. Often we find ourselves divided–even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe? During this study we will examine First Corinthians and learn how we are to deal with differences that rise up in the workplace, neighborhood, home, or community. The class will be taught by Kristen Lane. No previous Bible study experience is needed. Come and join other women as we work to love through disagreement.
