Stewardship & Budget
The pledge drive is wrapping up, even though there are still about 40+ pledges pending. Reminders are complete. So far, 311 pledges, $767,000 (as of April 12, 2018).
At this point, there are careful projections to create a draft budget and estimate pledge income totals. A draft budget will be available for review by the Board April 18, and by the congregation on May 6. Feedback and revisions will shape the final budget, which goes to the Board on May 15.
The final budget then goes to congregational vote at the annual meeting on June 3.
