Dec 6 Weekly Announcements

Financial Update From The Leadership Team

Dear church family, we want you to be aware of where we are financially as we seek to live out our ministry plan this year.  Giving started off slower than projected this fiscal year.  And while there are some recent slight improvements, fiscal year giving for the period 7/1/15 – 11/22/15 remained well short of budget:  ($130,655) or -19.9%.  We'll bring you another update soon as we head toward year-end together.  Please continue to pray for our ability do the ministry we believe God has called us to do.  And many thanks to all of you who are giving so generously! 

Don't forget that you can always give online as a one time or recurring gift.
