A NOTE FROM PASTOR TIM
We are told that a staggering 70% of Americans do not have a current will. The ramifications of this on children, surviving spouses, on taxes and fees is immeasurable. I think there are many reasons for this. Fear of dying, procrastination, confusion about the estate planning process, the cost of creating a will…and more.
We, want to provide some “layman friendly” estate planning information that can enable you to protect your family and be a wise steward of what He has entrusted you with. So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, kick off your shoes and browse around.
If you just want to get down to business, you can click on the Estate Plan Organizer at the bottom of the page and walk yourself through a tutorial/data gathering process. At the end, you can print it at home or ask for help.
All of the information you log in is confidential. The Estate Plan Organizer does not ask for social security numbers or bank account numbers. No one will see your entries unless you submit at the end and ask for help. In that case, one of our friends at The Baptist Foundation of Alabama or our partners at PhilanthroCorp (a Christ-centered estate planning firm) will be in touch to serve you in any way they can.
So, be blessed and make yourself at home!
Pastor Tim Lovett
TESTIMONY OF TONY AND DEBORAH SMITHSON
Several years ago, we had updated our will and estate plan when we had a big move in our family. Since then, we had some family changes and knew we needed to make some updates. When we saw that our church was promoting their partnership with the Baptist Foundation of Alabama, we decided to sign up for the service. We knew what to expect going in, but it was so nice to make updates and changes exactly how we wanted. Being able to do things over the phone was flexible and convenient for our schedules. We had an excellent experience and would encourage everyone to do it! This is a high-quality service, and we have been encouraging friends in our circle to take advantage of it We highly recommend this excellent service.
