We are proud of this website and encourage anyone who publishes anything about the church to include the new website address as part of the publication. It can be used in many ways, one of which is to introduce who we are and what we do and to encourage people to consider us for their spiritual needs. Please, anytime you see the old website address being publicized, correct it to our new address ldfchurch.com. And if you have a planned event, please let us know a week or so in advance and it will be advertised here.

With the new tax code, it has become more difficult to find deductions that exceed the standard amount allowed. But, are you aware that the IRS has established a procedure whereby you can reduce your taxable income by a special technique that involves charitable gifts that do not count toward your taxable income? For example, if you have a traditional IRA that requires you to take a required minimum distribution that is added to your taxable income each year, IRS code Sec. 408(d)(8)) allows you to have your investment firm deliver a charitable gift from your required minimum distribution to appropriate agencies such as churches, designated charities, etc. You do not touch that money and consequently, it is not included in taxable income for tax reporting purposes. This has become a popular technique for reducing the tax obligation to the IRS while satisfying charitable obligations. If you would like more information please contact your financial advisor or our Treasurer, Bill Raduege, through the church office at 715-588-7150.
