Transfer of Wealth Impacts Ministries

It is estimated that more than $68 trillion will be transferred to younger generations over the next 25 years in the U.S.—the greatest transfer of wealth ever.

It’s enough to get your attention.

Check out these close-to-home estate gifts written from September 2017 to June 2022 . . .

  •  to churches and schools in the Nebraska District:  $13,728,707
  • to Concordia University, Nebraska:  $10,556,000
  • to other LCMS organizations (LWML, LHM, OGT, etc.):  $8,234,186
  •  to St. John Foundation (2017-2021):  $363,154

How to participate in the transfer

Craig Stirtz is a gift planning counselor for the LCMS Foundation, working through the Nebraska District Office. He has helped plan gifts for ministry for 30 years. Craig’s role is to walk beside members and mentor them (for free!) on the ins and outs of probate, how to minimize taxes and maximize what your loved ones are able to keep, work with attorneys, and avoid common mistakes.

Craig has no products or services for sale, makes no sales pitch, and receives no commissions or fees. To reach Craig directly for personal counsel, contact him at 402-616-0312, or craig.stirtz@lfnd.org.

It’s come to our attention that some o are getting emails that appear to be from Pastor Mike Meyer, but are not. Please be cautious and do not respond to these emails.

How to protect yourself from scam emails and text messages (according to the FBI):

  • Remember that companies generally don’t contact you to ask for your username or password.
  • Don’t click on anything in an unsolicited email or text message. Look up the company’s phone number on your own (don’t use the one a potential scammer is providing), and call the company to ask if the request is legitimate.
  • Carefully examine the email address, URL, and spelling used in any correspondence. Scammers use slight differences to trick your eye and gain your trust.
  • Be careful what you download. Never open an email attachment from someone you don’t know and be wary of email attachments forwarded to you.
  • Set up two-factor (or multi-factor) authentication on any account that allows it, and never disable it.
  • Be careful with what information you share online or on social media. By openly sharing things like pet names, schools you attended, family members, and your birthday, you can give a scammer all the information they need to guess your password or answer your security questions.

Everyone is welcome to the Blue Valley Community Action Open House on June 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Join the Seward Chamber ribbon cutting at 10:00. Tour the new office, food pantry, and thrift store; meet and greet their team; and enjoy refreshments. 


Pray for those leading, volunteering at, and attending our Light of the World VBS next week!

If you have a medium sized lighthouse figurine similar to the one in this picture and would be willing to loan it for the VBS program, please bring it to church  on Sunday.


Please pray for the teens and leaders getting ready to attend the LCMS Youth Gathering in July. Thank you to all who have supported their fundraising efforts including the envelope wall, Egg-Your-House, Easter Breakfast, and meals this spring.  


What’s the best “Bang for your Buck” food deal on July 4th?  Join the Mighty Fortress Ev. Lutheran Church (located at 6th & Bradford) July 4th lunch fundraiser for the Blue Valley Food Pantry, starting at 10:00 a.m. and continuing until supplies run out. Come and enjoy their air-conditioned fellowship hall! Sit down and relax. Have a hot dog, and maybe a few extras! Enjoy a cold beverage or coffee. Restroom facilities are available. 


Our June item for the Blue Valley food pantry is just-add-water pancake mix. The collection box is in the Rock Cafe. Thanks for being a blessing to the community in this way! You can see our Blue Valley Pantry item schedule on our website. Also, they would still like more of the following: pasta, pasta meal mixes, instant potato side dishes, and mashed potatoes.
