2023 Mission & Ministry Support Appeal

Our 2023 Operating Budget, approved in the February 5th Congregational Meeting, includes the need to increase offerings by $39,400 to balance the budget and support the Christian mission and ministry of our church. This equates to an average increase of 11% in member giving for 2023.

Goal: $39,400

$77.50 per day

An average increase in offerings of 11% by our contributing members is needed to achieve the $39,400 mission and ministry support goal.  For example, the average donation is now $2,319/yr and this would need to increase by 11% or by $255/yr which equates to an average increase of just $0.70 per day. Members at the higher end of our donation spectrum would need to increase their giving by a proportionately larger dollar amount to meet the 11% goal. All contributing members will receive a letter within the next few days requesting your support of this important appeal. Please give this request your prayerful thought and respond as you are able. Thank you!
