Through 2020 and 2021, despite all the disruption, confusion, suffering and fog, you have been so kind, so generous, so faithful.
I thank you for giving to our congregation - a ray in the light of Christ. In early 2021 we completed our responsibility to our mortgage and we have enjoyed nearly a year without a house payment! Wonderful, thank you.
In 2021 our VLT decided to return to an important discipline of conducting annual reviews of our financial practices by a firm with Certified Public Accountants that specialize in such work. Currently we are conducting an outside audit with a firm Second B knows and trusts. I expect we will share a report from this audit at a regular Church Conference this calendar year. This is all an attempt to give our congregation the utmost confidence that gifts are handled appropriately with the highest professional and Christian standards possible. We expect this audit and commitment to annual review to demonstrate excellence from our financial office just as you have demonstrated excellence in generosity and faith.
Please join me in thanking our many volunteers who count the offering, sign checks and support our financial well being. Further, please join me in commending our Church Financial Administrator, Tanya Wofford, and our VLT for this commitment to transparency and trust. God is glorified in each of your gifts. May we be faithful to the one who is Faithful.
