As we enter into the third week of our sermon series “Things I Forget”, I want to encourage you to continue to reach out and invite people who you know who are far from God to join us at a weekend service.
This past week, in our all staff meeting we spent several minutes sharing stories of people we have invited. One of our staff members shared how he had invited two friends to join him, yet on the Sunday they came, he had to stay home with his children who were sick. His friends sent him selfies in front of the staff photos just to rub it in.
We are all in this together, helping people find Christ is a community project!
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.
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.
