Numbers to Keep in Mind for 2019 at First Presbyterian Church providing a perspective for your giving
$629,000 preliminary annual budget for 2019 (includes $399,000 for professional staff; $71,000 for ministry & mission; $159,000 for building, HVAC, insurance, supplies, communications, etc).
With 150 families, couples, single members and friends who participate regularly in the life of the church. an average of $4,000 is needed from each family, couple, or single member/friend (that would be 10% – a tithe – from those whose annual household income is $40,000). Of course, some are able to give less than and others more than the “average.” No matter what, please plan to give. The Lord blesses each gift and giver. Together the church will continue its ministry.
As the Session finalizes the budget for 2019, please fill out the online form or fill out this giving card and return it to the church in the offering plate or by mail by November 26th.
