Do you remember back in high school when they brought in a motivational speaker and the whole day went to assembly schedule? I always remember each class having a different feeling to it on that day, as if the teacher knew they really couldn’t get into the lesson plan. The break in the daily routine changed the outlook on the whole day.
Three times a year we invite all Richwoods volunteers to gather together for an assembly we call Leadership Community. The next one is coming up THIS Saturday, May 14.
If you are one of the “committed” – be careful how you use this term 🙂 – as in someone who is contributing to the ministry of the church in any format, I’m asking, pleading—but not begging—you to join us for 90 minutes of celebration, encouragement, refreshment, prayer, and bagels.
I guarantee the morning will fill your ministry tank. Together, as a bunch of ordinary people, we are part of something bigger than we can ever dream or imagine. Thanks for being part of what God is doing in and through us.
On average Richwoods needs to receive $39.1K in gifts to meet its 2016 operating expenses, 10% of which goes immediately to Missions and helping people in our community who are experiencing financial troubles.
Our budgets are set on a calendar year, submitted by staff and approved by the Elders of Richwoods. Our ability to meet the needs of the people, provide programs, offer ministry opportunities, and so on, are all contingent on the faithful and generous giving of the people who call Richwoods their church home. As a church we do not take annual pledges to set a budget but we work off of our historical giving and attendance patterns to project a conservative budget.
