STEPPING UP: Financial Facts

Did you know that church expenses have increased by 15% from 2010 to 2016, but pledge income has increased by only 10% over this same period? Our plan to finish our renewal projects, fund the increase in property repair and maintenance, and create a balanced annual budget will raise church expenses by an additional 30% ($175,000) above 2016 levels.
Did you know that the average pledge amounts to about $9 a day? Increasing the average pledge by just $3 a day will put us on track to exceed our STEPPING UP goal. The STEPPING UP goal is to create a sustainable budget by increasing the level of giving to a level that is realistic to our anticipated expenses.
