Financially speaking, we had a good year at Advent in 2016 – we paid all our bills, improved parts of our property, and were able to help our community financially through outreach. In addition, we added about $7k to our reserves, paid down some debt and our Endowments grew largely from market increases in our investments.
Receipts from pledging did come in a bit lower than expected, but we made up for it by spending less and receiving some other non-pledged gifts.
The 2017 budget has been completed and we will be discussing it on Sunday, February 19th after the 10am service. Be there or be square!
Stay safe and God bless.
