We are pleased to share with you that we ended 2017 with record giving to Redeemer! Though numbers have not been finalized, we received over $75,000 above budgeted giving. With a budget requiring $1,550,965 for the year, your contributions totaled over $1,626,000.
In the next month we will determine the exact amount of the surplus based on how expenses are finalized. We are confident, though, that spending was within budgeted amounts, particularly because we had budgeted for a Senior Pastor for part of the year.
As the numbers are being finalized, the session will work to determine exactly how the surplus will be allocated. More information about this, as well as information about the 2017 budget, will be available in February when we produce our annual report.
2016 Giving statements will be mailed by the end of the month. In the meantime, you can check your contributions by logging into The City. Please email Amy Wilson [firstname.lastname@example.org] with any questions.
Once again, thank you for your generosity to the work Christ is doing in and through Redeemer!
