IMPORTANT TAX BENEFIT —  Have you reached that golden IRS age of 70 ½? If so, then you can donate directly to Holy Spirit from your taxable IRA with a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Just direct your IRA custodian to distribute via direct check to Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit. Currently the maximum annual QCD amount any individual can make in total is $105,000 (index adjusted annually).

  • This direct contribution satisfies any RMD (Required Minimum Distribution) you may be subject to.

  • This distribution is not included in your Adjusted Gross Income for the year and thus will not be taxable income.

  • This amount will not count against your IRMAA (income related monthly adjustment amount for Medicare).

 

You may already have a checkbook for your taxable IRA account for making such charitable contributions written directly to the charity.

 

 

FLOWER CHART — If you would like to donate flowers in honor or celebration of someone, the sign up   chart is hanging in the gathering space. Please print legibly.

 

 

EXPOS — Expos will be pausing their monthly meetings for the upcoming spring and summer months. Any special gatherings will be announced as they are scheduled.
