Your Giving Matters
Inserted in your announcements this week is information on giving for the first four months of 2023. In our Gathering Meeting on April 23rd, some of you mentioned you would like to see more information about giving and how we are doing regarding making our budget for the year.
The insert includes weekly and monthly giving for January through April and what we need each week and month to meet our budget. Going forward, you will get a summary each week in the bulletin to let you track how we are doing.
If you have any questions about this information, please contact Lynn Montgomery, our church treasurer, or Pastor Lynnette.
Here’s how you can give:
➢in-person during Sunday worship services.
