Your Gifts Directly Impact Our Ministry!
Thank you to all who gave Estimates of Giving for 2023.
In 2022, we had 162 pledges for a total of $797,792. We projected receiving around 1.02 million against a budget of 1.1 million. We are thankful for the generosity of the congregation, as well as a 25,000 grant we received from the County. We also have monies that were given for general use for the church during the last couple years of COVID that should offset our 2022 shortfall.
As we look at 2023, we have 150 estimate of giving cards (as of December 7th) amounting to $822,167. Of those 150, 12 of those were people who did not give estimates for 2022. Of the 138 others, 83 increased their estimated giving from 2022. As we look ahead to 2023, with these estimates of giving, our projection is up to 1.06 million and we have worked to reduce our budget to around 1.078 million, giving us a much better financial outlook as we move into 2023. Again, thank you for your generosity and if you have not turned in an estimate of giving card and plan to give in 2023, you can fill a card out at the bottom of this page and help us to better anticipate giving and expenditure capability in 2023.
Through It All
Each year, we make a brochure introducing our theme and goals for the year. You can download a printable version of this year's brochure HERE! You will also receive a copy in the mail.
A Giving Exercise!
The amount mentioned in the Bible as the portion of wealth we should return to God is 10%. Using this worksheet, we invite you to calculate 10% of your household's income. You may not be able to give this amount currently, but we ask that you pray about the possibility of raising the amount of giving by a percentage over last year.
