Following the Generous Way of Jesus, 63 households made financial pledges for 2018 totaling $210,320. This is an increase from pledges for 2016, both in the number of pledges made and the total amount pledged. Bookkeeper Cecilia Le noted that there are still a few pledges she expects will be made before the end of the year making these numbers even stronger.
“Time and again, the members and friends of this congregation step up to meet needs – specific and general,” Pastor Jeff said. “I am so proud and thankful for this congregation.”
Pledges, budget requests from the various Ministry Teams in the church, and history are used by the Finance Committee to draft a budget for Cabinet’s consideration. Cabinet makes the final determination of what will be presented to the congregation for their possible amendment and approval. The annual financial meeting of the congregation will be on Sunday, January 28, 2018, following worship.
Thank you for your generous support of the ministry of Niles Discovery Church.
