We were $33,856 over budget for church ministry last Sunday (12/23). This places us at 91.6% of budget (first time we have been over 90% all year). We have jumped 5 percentage points in just 4 weeks. We need just over $216,000 to meet 2007 income projections, but only a week to do it. These numbers do not include any stock gifts we may receive.
The Global numbers were $20,678 above budget last Sunday. We are at 88.3% of budget there. With one week to go we need about $130,000 in offering for Global. We have jumped by 4 percentage points in the last 4 weeks.
Building was almost $2,000 over budget last week, bringing us to a YTD total of $219,017, almost 89% of budget. We need close to $32,000 to meet 2007 income projections. We have jumped over 1 percentage point in the last 4 weeks.
Please contiinue to pray for end of the year income. (We should meet our Church Ministry expenses for the year. Global feels the shortfall more keenly, as commitments are made to partners that should be kept.
