2017 Financial Stewardship: Finishing Strong
Historically Greenwich “finishes strong” with our giving such that we make up the usual late Summer/early Fall deficit and end the year with a little bit in reserve.
Through October 31, year-to-date offering income is running behind expenses by approximately $73,000
This year-to-date shortfall is well within our historical giving patterns. Even though our accumulated reserves are more than adequate to cover any potential year-end shortfall, it would be a great witness to God’s blessing in our lives to finish the year “in the black” once again.
As your personal situation allows, we invite you to make a sacrificial year-end contribution to the Operating Fund by noon on Sunday, December 31.
Please be under no compulsion to give, but as you are able to “give cheerfully” we encourage you to make a year-end contribution to our Operating Fund because your gift truly does make a difference in extending the love of Jesus Christ into the community, and to the farthest corners of the world.
