What happens if my church closes?

We can provide you with sample language that your lawyer can insert in your will.  That way you can express where you want your gift to go in the event that your congregation closes while you are still living.  If the church closes after it receives your gift, all of its assets will be distributed in an orderly fashion according to its constitutional documents.  In many cases, care of the congregation’s assets will be transferred to the Eastern Synod.
