Update on Pledging:
We budgeted $84,200 as pledge income for this FY but with late pledges and pledges from new members, $95,625 has now been pledged. This is an $11,425 increase. Funds above that spent for operations can be used for ministry.
The Ministry Fund:
We have $53,900 in paid and pledged donations to the Ministry Fund. We also have the $13,400 from last year that was put aside for ministry. That is 90% of our $75,000 goal. With the money we are putting aside this year for ministry, we will exceed our goal. This will allow us to start the search for ½ time ministry.
