Summer Budget Update
Each year our parish budget experiences fluctuations as our members' lives change -- some will die, others will move away for new jobs, others will need to revise their pledge amounts for personal reasons. We respond to those changes with prayer and adjustments to our budget.
This summer we have higher than average adjustments to our budget as we estimate a $25,000 shortfall in total revenues for 2019. The finance committee has adjusted expenses and revenues to offset the majority of this deficit without severely cutting back on our mission and programs for the year. We remain roughly $7,000 short of what is needed to cover the expected shortfall.
We ask our members to prayerfully consider an increase in your annual financial commitment to Grace Church to help offset this deficit. Please contact our treasurer Tim Engelbrecht, Shari Bonham or Fr. Todd if you are able to increase your annual giving.
We are grateful to your continued support as we do God's work in the world.
