Planned Giving

The mission of the Planned Giving Committee of the Stewardship and Finance Ministry is to help members discover ways to share these blessings in support of the mission and ministries of Paxton Presbyterian Church. The goal of this committee is to share the joyful vision of making a charitable gift to Paxton and to offer guidance and direction regarding the numerous options for making a charitable bequest. For further information on how you may make a planned gift to the Church, please contact the pastor or a member of the committee.

Planned giving is a broad term for charitable gifts in which the donor makes a gift that a charity, such as Paxton Church, will receive at a future date.

The New Covenant Society

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord”– throughout Scripture, music is shown to be one of the great expressions of faith. During our lives we are called in many different ways to sing along and harmonize with Jesus. Composing a legacy can be one of those ways.

The New Covenant Society recognizes, honors, and thanks members and friends who have remembered Paxton Presbyterian Church in their estate plans. Society members share a common commitment to ensuring that Paxton Church has the financial resources to carry on its mission and commitment to its members and the community. To accomplish this goal, each member of the Society agrees to make a special planned gift to Paxton Church…a gift that will have a lasting impact.

Recent events include Wills Emphasis Sunday, the first Sunday in May (annually).
