THE LUTHERAN CHURCH MISSOURI SYNOD
Our congregations accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.
CHRISTIAN PREAMBLE FOR A WILL
As Christians, we thank God for His love and mercy in providing forgiveness of sins and eternal life for us. We pray that God will use us to tell others of His love and mercy, and we pray that He will also enable us to live a life that is a witness to Christ and the salvation we have in Him. In addition, we can also make a strong witness to Jesus and our hope in Him in a preamble to our Last Will and Testament. A sample of such a preamble is available here for your use. It can be downloaded and edited to fit your personal touch and desires. God bless you to make your Last will and Testament a strong expression of your faith and a note of hope for others.
WILL IN REGARD TO A FUNERAL SERVICE
Christians are encouraged to make their preferences known in regard to their funeral service. The attached form is available for you to do just that. This expression of your desires for your funeral service will make planning for your funeral by your pastor simple and easy, and is will assure that your personal expression of faith is clear and distinct in the service. Once you have completed the form, please keep a copy with your final papers and your will. But also please make a copy available to your pastor for inclusion in your personal file at church. You may also want to give a copy to your loved ones to assist them in knowing your wishes in regard to your funeral.
