Financial and Generosity Reports — May 2024

by Barbara Strobel

Financial Report

by Barbara Strobel, parishioner and treasurer of the church

Our 2024 finances are off to an excellent start. We are thankful that the Lord continues to bless us financially as we seek to do His work. Our revenues through April are right on target. Our expenses are slightly under budget due to filling a few open staff positions later than anticipated. We projected our revenues at this point in the year to exceed our expenses by over $450,000 and they are slightly better than that.

The summer tends to have lower attendance as folks travel and we want to keep our momentum going because planning for the fall will be in full swing. Please consider making a donation before leaving for vacation this summer. And as a reminder, 2024 is the last year of the generous Nau match, so please also consider making a gift above your pledge to allow us to meet the match.

Everyone’s gifts, large and small, are needed this year as we grow and expand in our call to be a Light to the City.

As of April 30, 2024:

% of total revenue to budget 

  • YTD Revenue was 39% of the 2024 Revenue Budget
  • YTD Revenue $3,540,226; YTD 2024 Budgeted Revenue $9,120,000

% of total expenses to budget

  • YTD Expenses: 33% of the 2024 Expense Budget
  • YTD Expenses: $3,018,540; 2024 Budgeted Expenses $9,113,060

Every gift large or small, matters! Thank you giving back to the Lord a portion of what he has given you.
