End Of Year Financial Update
Continued thanks to all of you who so generously have a plan to give to the church you love. We love the word "Plan" because when you plan to give, we can plan our Kingdom investments in the most strategic way. We are halfway through our fiscal year and right on target to fulfill our ministry commitments. But as with any church or non-profit, December giving is an important part of our revenue cycle. With your ongoing generosity, not only will we be able to meet all of our ministry goals for this year, but it will greatly inform next year's vision, strategy, and ministry spending plan. Thanks for being part of this adventure called Marin Covenant Church!
A practical consideration: If you have plans to make a year-end gift, don't forget that for 2017 tax purposes all donations must be postmarked or transacted by Dec. 31. (Are you set up to give online and/or automatically? Here is the easy-peasy, handy-dandy link to give electronically.
Additionally, gifts of appreciated assets (stocks) can be arranged by contacting the church office.
Thanks for being partners in what God has called MCC to do and to be!
