Quarterly Treasurer's Report

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
 
In Oct–Dec 2019, we averaged $12,855 in monthly revenue and $13,525 in expenses. Revenue was even with the previous quarter, and expenses were also similar (except for a Visiting Clergy expense of $1,000). 

2020 Giving Intention Forms are now available (see below). As you consider your contribution, please keep in mind that the parish approved a budget of $14,147 per month at the Annual Meeting, and we have a gap to fill if we are to achieve that number. This is just under a 10% increase in giving over last year, and I believe we can achieve this goal, with God’s help.
 
Please feel free to contact me if there are any specific questions or concerns you would like to discuss.
 
Yours in Christ,
Greg Waters, Treasurer

 Looking Back
Last Sunday we discussed "David (Early Life)" (1 Kingdoms [1 Samuel] 16-17;  Children's Bible Reader , pgs 126-28) Ask your kids about David . What amazing things did he do as a lowly shepherd boy? He was anointed by Samuel to be the next king, he defeated Goliath by the power of God, and he wrote the beautiful Psalms that are in the Bible!
⤿  Looking Forward
Next Sunday we will discuss "David (Later Life)" (1 Kingdoms [ 1 Samuel] 19:1-10 & 20:12-42. And 2 Kingdoms [ 2 Samuel] 4:4; 9:1-7; 15:10-14; and 18:5-14, 33.  Children's Bible Reader , pgs 129-31) .
