2012 Financial Report Update

Due to some extremely generous end of the year giving our financial report has changed significantly since being published in the January Touchstone, showing a deficit of $9,476.84. The new report is as follows:

 

                    December 2012          Jan. – Dec. 2012

Income            $35,379.82                 $220,457.53

Expenses          17,506.84                   219,783.37

Difference         17,872.98                          674.16

 

As you may recall, our budget deficit was $17,270 at the end of November and we praise the Lord for His moving and generous provision to eradicate that deficit and to meet our needs so that we are free to continue sharing the truth and love of Jesus in our community and beyond. We are also thankful to everyone who gives and shares as you are able so that together we are able to fulfill God’s plan for us as His church.
