Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
The wardens and Parish Council would like to encourage all members of the church to praying for our church’s budget situation at this time. As at the end of May we are substantially behind budget for the year ($38,622). If we do not deal with this situation over the next couple of months we will very quickly eat into all of our cash reserves and be in a position of not being able to pay for the ministry we have, under God, decided to do.
How can you help?
1) If you have not yet come on board as a regular financial supporter, it would be wonderful if you could do so. Electronic giving details are below and giving forms are available at all our services. It is our week in week out faithful support that is the key element.
2) If you have not updated the amount of your giving in some time, perhaps now would be a good time to do so?
3) If God has blessed you financially, perhaps you would consider giving a larger one-off donation to help alleviate the accumulated budget shortfall?
4) Pray for your church, that we would all have a spirit of generosity, flowing out of our faith in Christ.
Giving year to date $280,268
Budget year to date $318,890
Shortfall year to date $ 38,622
