Summer Financial and Stewardship Update

At its most recent meeting, the Church Council reflected on the generosity of the congregation
and the amazing things we are able to do as stewards of God’s resources. Here are a few quick
examples:
Mission – Hundreds of pounds of food for the Amherst Survival Center, a meal shared at
Cathedral in the Night, and financial support for the new refugees settling in our community.
Ministry – A new sound system, a wide range of instruments, communion for shut-ins, and a
global focus for Sunday services help to make worship more welcoming and accessible.
Stewardship – LED light bulbs, a tremendous amount of yard work, and new paint in the Men’s
bathroom help to ensure that the property is safe and welcoming.
All of this is possible because we share our time, talent, and treasure. Thank you so much for
your generosity! Together we are keeping both income (pledges) and expenses on track and
things are looking solid at the halfway point of the year.
If you are interested in learning more, ask a council member or check out the financial reports,
which can be found on the bulletin board outside the church office.
