Who Will Inherit The Mess – Estate Planning Educational Workshop


Led by Generations Legal Services 

Learn proactive steps to avoid messy situations:
  • How to avoid leaving a mess and confusion for children
  • How to make sure your estate avoids Probate (hint: having a WILL doesn’t do it)
  • The difference between Wills and Trusts
  • How to make provisions for children and/or charities within your estate plan
  • The importance of Power of Attorney and Healthcare Directives
  • What is TOD, POD, and TODD and why may I need them?
  • How to leave a legacy of love & support while minimizing taxes
This is a free event, there will be no solicitation. However, because of a grant from our partner Converge North Central two days of complementary estate planning appointments for anyone who would like a personal meeting with a team member from Generations Legal Services.

Covenant in Real Life
Led by Pastor Christian Ann Larson


This seminar has two tracks – one for those not currently in a relationship and one for couples to participate in together.How do couples build thriving, trusting marriages in such a complex world? How can couples grow their trust in God and one another so they feel more confident to the life God has called them to? Take a day to learn (together) about what matters most in healthy covenants. During this morning, we will learn about attachment to God and one another. Time will have breakouts for the various tracks and will be less about learning skills and far more about building deep connections in the midst of vulnerabilities. Marriage is not for the faint of heart, so join us for this bold seminar!

April 19th – 6:30-9pm

Location: Mill City Church (685 13th Ave NE)

Genesis Innovation Seminar
Led by Dr. Ramón Pastrano & Pastor Steph O’Brien


Have you wondered what it would like to start something new that would impact others in positive ways? As you look at the challenges we face in the world – do you see opportunities for innovation and new approaches to bring transformation? The Genesis Innovation Seminar is for those who have an idea, or are searching for an idea to meet a problem you see around you. This workshop will use “human-centered design” to jump start your ideas for social innovation, change and entrepreneurship. There will be future cohorts offered to help folks put their ideas into practice – this seminar is a great way to get a taste of what that cohort would be like!
