Although our general budget income has decreased in the past two years, we have still been able to meet the needs of our staffing, facility, and ministries. This past year our giving in tithes and offerings reached $3.02 million. I am especially grateful to each of you for your faithfulness in offering your first fruits to the Lord by supporting the local church. Our ability to minister, locally, nationally, and internationally, is facilitated by the generous hearts of those within our fellowship. Although our general giving has had a slight decrease, our missions giving has set a new record high with $804,000. This figure represents the 9% from our tithes and offerings, special offerings, projects, mission team fundraising, child sponsorship, and Casa Materna (a maternity home to help reduce the infant mortality rate). Internationally, your giving has built a playground, served medical needs, and sponsored 53 children in Guatemala. It has served in disaster relief in Haiti and Peru. You have provided blankets for 100 Iraqi refugees needing shelter as well as helped support 14 missionary families in 11 countries. You have supported medical teams in Haiti and the beginnings of churches in Ethiopia. Locally, you have supported the Haven Ministry, Expectations Women’s Center, Meadowbrook, Oasis of Hope, and The Well Ministry. You have given $25,000 in gift cards to individuals in our community, provided outreach opportunities to the community for children, families, business leaders, and future pastors. Your giving supports Pastor Immer and our Hispanic Ministry that is reaching Spanish populations in our area. $44,000 was given to the Food Pantry this past year, equipping us with the ability to reach 2,447 distributions to families with over 210,000 pounds of food! All invested in treasures that only heaven will reveal.
