(NOTE: Members are encouraged to contact their personal tax adviser to determine the tax advantages, as this will vary from person to person.)

Keep in mind when it comes to actually living in retirement, especially after the age of 70½, you’ll have the opportunity to give to charity directly from your IRAs (a form of roll-over), where just as with non-qualifying investments such as stocks, the charity can benefit from the full gift amount, not the post-tax amount that you’d have to give if it came from your required minimum distribution.
If you get $4,000 a month out of an IRA but only see $2,700 post-tax, using a charitable roll-over would net the charity the full $4,000.

Drink Coffee on Sunday!
Every Sunday morning between services, we serve Equal Exchange Coffee. Every delicious cup helps transform poor communities that depend on their coffee crop to feed their families. Farmers are given a stable, predictable, and higher price upfront for their beans.
With Lutheran World Relief Farmers Market Coffee, farmers aren’t just suppliers of coffee beans, they are partners in the coffee business. What a great way to make a difference on Sunday morning with just one cup of coffee!
At LCHS we strive to we follow Jesus by Loving God, Living God's word and caring for all People. We invite you to be a part of the mission and ministry!
