Actually, the approval process began last September with recommendations from our staff leadership team. Then others participated in the approval process including the Personnel Committee, Elders and Deacons, and the Finance & Stewardship Committee. Last week, the Elders and Deacons met together to finally review and approve the proposed Ministry Fund budget.
Now it is time for our congregation to review and discuss the budget for the next fiscal year. You can be involved by:
- Attending a congregational budget meeting in the gym during the Sunday School hour on January 24 or January 31. (Check S.S. class schedule)
- Picking up a copy of the proposed budget in advance in the church office, if desired.
- Encouraging others to participate.
This is a great opportunity to find out more about our spending plan, get questions answered and make informed suggestions as we discuss the budget together.
During our annual business meeting in March, church members will have the opportunity to vote on the 2016-2017 Ministry Fund budget in its final form. In the meantime, all of us can pray for God’s wisdom as decisions are made. Our desire is to know and follow His will in planning and administering the finances of our church.
