Quarterly Letter, April 2017
Dear Church Family,
The first quarter of 2017 has come to a close for our church programming and financial stewardship. Most notable changes in programming included the service time changes implemented in March. All indications are that this has been well received by the membership and has not impacted giving. Online giving was also introduced and early results indicate that this has also been well received as a convenient option for giving.
Here are the financial highlights for the first quarter:
Giving toward the pledges to the Reaching Up Reaching Out capital campaign was $14,064, through 3/31/17. This brings the campaign to nearly 97% of total pledges, with about 30 days to the close of an impressive three year campaign. Our membership has once again proven their commitment and support for the good work of First Church.
As we transition into spring and the second quarter of God’s work, we expect the pace to quicken. Maintenance projects for our church buildings and grounds are underway. Our Small Group program has begun a second series of study and fellowship as this program continues to build stronger relationships within our church and God.
On behalf of the Finance Committee, thank you for your generosity.
Gary Wichman, Chair
