Gift Planning Service
Did you know that giving cash, writing a check, or donating online are not the only ways you can financially support God’s work in Minnesota? Cash donations are certainly always needed and are gratefully received. But sometimes it might make more sense to give assets you own instead that have grown in value like Stocks, Bonds, Cryptocurrencies, Real Estate other than your home, unused land, IRA funds if you’re 70 ½ or older, or other valuable property. In addition to receiving an Income Tax Deduction for your gift, you may also be able to Bypass Capital Gains Taxes (up to 30% or more on the gain) between federal and state. That means your gift to your local church, school, North Star Camp, Maplewood Academy, Evangelism, or any of the ministries of the Minnesota Conference you want to support could actually go much further than just giving cash. If you would like to learn more about how you can support the ministries of the Minnesota Conference using appreciated assets you own, please contact us today and let us help you find the best solution to meet your goals and wishes. (763) 424-8923; www.mnsdagift.org; firstname.lastname@example.org.

Minikus Music Tour
Hello Minnesota Church Family,
I am so very excited to share an opportunity for music ministry/a live concert in your local church (big or small) by some awesome Christ-centered musicians who have a passion for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. I recently reached out to Matt and Josie Minikus (www.mattandjosieminikus.com) regarding coming to our local church in Blackberry next summer for a concert, and we are so excited to share their music with our local community. We have been richly blessed by their beautiful music and know that our neighbors will be as well. They would graciously welcome the opportunity to share their music in more churches in Minnesota too, so if you are interested, please contact Matt at: (712) 310-5546 or email@example.com. I know that they will be sharing their music in other churches in Minnesota next summer, so contact them soon if you'd like to invite them to your church too. If you're not yet familiar with their inspiring and thoughtful music, checkout their Youtube channel here: Youtube.com/mattandjosieminikus. Sara Swanson – Blackberry SDA Church
