How did we do in the month of May?
We were $2,482.32 over our monthly budget.
How much does it “cost” to run the church?
In a 5 Sunday month, it takes a minimum of $35,747 to run the church. This is the bare bones fixed costs of keeping the doors open. It allows us to pay the bills and fund a minimal amount to our ministries.
How much was the actual giving for the month?
The giving for May was $38,229.32
What do we do with the excess giving?
Currently we are allocating money for our monthly costs and keeping excess funds to help cover possible future giving that does not cover the monthly budget.
Is there anything else I need to know?
- If you’re someone who regularly gives to God at New Life: Thanks! Your giving makes a difference.
- If you’re someone who is not yet giving: Make a decision to get involved. Take the first step toward the biblical practice of giving. You can find out more about giving here.
- And for everyone: Please take time this week to pray for the finances of both our church family, and the individual families that make up New Life.
