"We are pleased to offer this excellent seminar to our church friends and commu- nity members," stated Mark Weber, Senior Minister at First Christian Church. "Most f'amilies find it easy to put off the estate plan- ning process. People need to understand that the process of establishing an estate plan is not difficult, nor threaten- ing. We're offering this semi- nar and do so to encourage and assist the community to plan ahead for life's reali- ties. And, estate planning is not just for the elderly. It is crucial that all people with young children identify guardians rather than letting the courts decide what will happen to the  children in the event of the loss of both parents." Topics covered include: Wills, Revocable Living Trusts, Limited Powers of Attorney, Health Care Rep- resentative Designations, and estate tax reduction mechanisms. Advantages and disadvantages of the various instruments will be discussed, and certainly, there will be ample opportu- nities for questions from the audience.
