Year End Financial Update...

Thanks to everyone who gave in 2015.  With God’s help and your generosity our mission of sharing Christ continues.  Now that the year has ended, it’s time to see how we did financially.  We have good news and bad news. The good news is that we have many generous members, the bad news is that even with their generosity, we still experienced a shortfall in our giving for the year.

We experienced an average shortfall of $238 a week.

How we made up for the shortfall - We made up for the shortfall by pulling money out of reserves and cutting the budget in August of last year.  This helped, but even with the budget cuts we are still experiencing a short fall.

Additional measures - We have implemented an additional budget cut that went into effect at the beginning of this year, on January 1st, 2016.  Our hope is that this cut, along with stronger giving, will put our church on stronger financial footing. 

Please join us in praying for God’s hand of blessings on our finances as we start the new year.
