On Saturday January 30, 2010 10am to 2pm St. Luke AME Church will host Legal Day 2010 “Wills, Advanced Directives, & Powers of Attorney – What You Need to Know to Protect Your Family and Your Assets!” This seminar will be facilitated by representatives from Alabama Legal Services, a non-profit organization that provides legal assistance to individuals in Alabama. St. Luke AME is located at 2801 21st Avenue North Birmingham.

Seminar topics will include the nuts and bolts of a will, advanced directive, and power of attorney. Attendees will learn why they need a will even if they believe they don’t have anything to bequeath, how to get their families to accept their final wishes as to asset distribution and medical decisions, and what to do if a person does not act according to the provisions of a power of attorney agreement.

“We all love our families, and we must be proactive in protecting them, and protecting all we have worked for,” stated Rev. Brian K. Blackwell, pastor of St. Luke AME. “A will is a basic instrument, easily prepared, that can accomplish this goal. And advanced directives give our families specific instructions as to what we want to happen should if we can no longer make decisions for ourselves. Our families need us to take care of this business sooner, not later. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.”

As an added bonus, those attendees age 60 plus and live in Jefferson County may be eligible to receive a free will prepared by Alabama Legal Services. Also, lunch will be provided to all attendees.

St. Luke AME Church is led by Rev. Brian K. Blackwell and its mission is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and environmental needs of all people by spreading Christ’s liberating gospel through word and deed. St. Luke AME is committed to praising God, empowering our members, and serving our communities.
