If you are an LGBTQ Christian or have an LGBTQ Christian loved one, you’ll want your assets to go where YOU want them to go, not where the state directs.
What’s At Stake?
- Your same-sex partnership may not legally be recognized in many states.
- Your same-sex partnership may not legally be recognized by the federal government.
- States typically allocate assets first to different-sex spouses, then to parents and siblings.
- Same-sex partners and their biological children / grandchildren often have no legal standing.

Remember Resurrection MCC in Your Will or Living Trust
Here are a few ways you can remember Resurrection MCC in your will or living trust
(The legal language to give to your attorney or financial advisor is in quotes below)
A Percentage Bequest sets aside a fixed portion of your estate for Resurrection MCC
“I give and bequeath to Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church located at 2025 W 11th St, Houston, Texas, ___% of my estate, both real and personal property of whatever kind and wheresoever situated, to be used for its general purposes.”
After other bequests have been made, a Residuary Bequest grants the remainder or a portion of the remainder of your estate to Resurrection MCC .
“I give and bequeath to Resurrection MCC located at 2025 W 11th St, Houston, Texas, all (or ___%) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, to be used for its general purposes.”
A Specific Bequest gives Resurrection MCC a stated dollar amount or security.
“I give and bequeath to Resurrection MCC located at 2025 W 11th St, Houston, Texas, the sum of $_________ (or describe the specific securities or property) to be used for its general purposes.”
In case one or more of your bequests cannot be fulfilled, a Contingent Bequest would benefit Resurrection MCC.
“If any of the above named beneficiaries should pre-decease me, I hereby bequeath his or her share to Resurrection MCC located at 2025 W 11th St, Houston, Texas, to be used for its general purposes.”
Help ensure that Resurrection MCC’s message of God’s unconditional love for all people can continue into the future by including Resurrection MCC in your estate planning.
