Wintry greetings to everyone! Here at Christus Victor, we’ve got nuts and bolts, dollars and cents on our minds as we prepare for the upcoming Annual Meeting. I want to thank everyone for their generosity over this past year. Your contributions not only help keep the lights on and the bills paid, it helps us to fulfill our mission to be the presence of Christ in our community. Christus Victor has come a long way in the past few years and your joyful giving has helped make that possible.
Every year, we ask our members to take a moment to consider what they may be able to contribute towards our operating budget. I’m pleased to report that your response has been very strong. We have received over 60 pledges this year, some from members who have not pledged in the past. Our pledged giving has increased almost 15% over last year. This puts us ever closer to a balanced budget for this year. If you have not done so, I encourage you to consider pledging. It enables us to move forward, confident that we have all the resources that we need. Thank you so much for your trust in our ministry together.
I’m so excited about the opportunities in the coming year and I can’t wait to share some of my ideas with you in the coming weeks. Thanks be to God for the abundance that we receive!
See you Sunday,
