As of July 31, the church is seeing a deficit in the general budget of $6,500. This is primarily due to donations to the church budget being $18.500 below where they were projected to be. Fortunately, there have been some savings on expenses that has narrowed the deficit by about 2/3. As usual the Finance Committee regularly monitors the church budget, and all church funds, and can make quick decisions should they be necessary. On a more positive note, the church Endowment Fund passed the $1,000,000 minimum in assets that was established before they could start distributions. The Endowment Committee is working to put together a process for requesting funds and should have something to roll out by fall. If you have an interest in contributing to the endowment, please talk to Robb in the church office.
