Legal Issues for Life Planning

January 11 & 18, 2015
2:00 p.m.
Northminster Fireside Room

A great deal of planning goes into building a good life.

Yet, all too often, we put off thinking about our final chapter­, a plan for living well to the end of life with peace of mind.


Northminster Presbyterian Church of Ames is offering a program on the legal issues of life planning, presented by Judge Larry Jahn. Topics include wills, trusts, estate and inheritance taxes, guardianships, advanced directives and charitable giving.


The program is free and open to the public.


Topics will be divided into two sessions.
Sundays, January 11th and 18th, at 2:00 p.m.


Enrollment is limited. Please register by contacting the Northminster office at 515-233-2540 or office@amesnpc.org.


You may access the syllabus on the Legal Issues for Life Planning Page.
