Friends in Christ,
I trust you are delighted, as I am to have participated in the great financial finish the Lord blessed us with in 2017. As you can see, we ended the year in a positive position, able to build on our reserves for the big year ahead. The totals you see are the results after the vestry, seeing where we would end up, decided to tithe ($15,000) by blessing our foreign missionaries with a love offering to help get their new year of ministry started.
This is all great news and I trust you are encouraged, as I am. Thank you for responding as generously as you did to close out 2017, and get 2018 off to a strong start. We will be sharing more in the coming weeks about our Destined for Joy Campaign and upcoming building project, as we are working on the legal, technical, and financial details, and in conversations with people and institutions beyond our church to secure what’s needed to continue forward. Please continue to keep our efforts in prayer for the Lord's guidance and grace. His will be done.
Gratefully in Christ,
