You did it!, or better yet, with one weekend left of giving for 2016 it’s probably better said in present tense, You Are Doing It!
Once again the generosity of the people of Richwoods has exceeded goals set. Heading into the new year we are sending nearly $25K to Haiti to rebuild roofs on a church and school. We also have put aside enough funding to replace the original roof on the Knoxville Campus, which helps our staff and volunteers focus all of their energy on people.
Year-end giving: This coming weekend all gifts will be credited to 2016. We will mail out giving statements before January 23rd.
Annual Meeting: Saturday, January 21 from 9-10:15am at the Knoxville Campus. We will take time to celebrate the past year and take a peak into 2017.

2016 Cash Balance
As a policy we must have at least 2 weeks of average weekly income in our cash balance at all times, currently that figure is $75K.
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.
