IRA TAX FREE GIFT NEWS

Over 70 1/2 ?  

A charitable IRA contribution allows individuals over 70 1/2 to contribute up to $100,000 to their favorite charities without recognizing it as taxable income.    

Give DUC a tax free gift from your IRA in 2017.  Don’t miss this opportunity to take advantage of the special tax laws available right now and make a tax free distribution from your retirement account directly to the church and still benefit from the charitable deduction!   Talk to your IRA plan administrator before it’s too late. 

SECOND SUNDAY, SECOND HOUR

In February we will debut a new adult education opportunity: “Second Sunday, Second Hour.” The first four sessions will focus on “end of life issues.” The format for each session will primarily be question and answer.  You’ll learn more about this learning opportunity in the new year, but we want to encourage you to save the dates:

  Feb. 11 @ 11:30 – Health Concerns with Melissa Weidman from Hope Hospice

  March 11 @ 11:30 – Legal Matters with attorney Emir Sehic

  April 8 @ 11:30 – Preparing a Funeral with Faith Hallett – Hallett Funeral Home

FROM THE PASTOR’S STUDY

The season of Advent is on the horizon.  Advent begins the church year. It begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day. The word Advent means “coming” or “arrival.”

     Advent is a season of waiting and watching leading to the joyful celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is marked by a spirit of expectation, anticipation, preparation and longing.

SOCIAL CONCERNS
