SUNDAY SCHOOL WING UPDATE

AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

 

After investigating and planning for the next stage of the project, the next step is to remove the ceiling tiles and old insulation from a portion of the building.  Then, the space will be sprayed with an open cell foam.  The insulation will cost around $ 2,500 and we have received funds to pay for that.  In order to keep things moving along without depleting our repair fund, we are encouraging the congregation to give to the Sunday School Wing project over and above their normal giving.  We anticipate needing around $ 2,500 more for lighting, painting, plumbing, and cabinetry.  This next phase includes the nursery and will be the most expensive (hopefully) piece of the project.  We are taking our time with this project and trying to spruce up this part of our building in a thoughtful, environmentally responsible way that will serve the needs of the congregation for years to come.

These sessions are on Wednesday evenings beginning

STEWARDSHIP AND THANKSGIVING

 

We had five giving units signup for electronic giving in November. 

 

This page can be accessed on the Trinity Lutheran website by pressing the "giving" button at the top of the page.  Electronic giving is easy to setup or modify and can provide a status report on activity for the year. 

Or, you may click below to be connected to our online giving page. 

 

It's convenient for you and provides much-needed financial consistency for the church. It is a secure site provided by Vannco services that is part of the simply giving program.

FINANCIAL REPORT

 

We were pleasantly surprised that we ended 2014 with an $ 85.00 surplus which is virtually breakeven.

 

The current financials show an approximate deficit of        $ 9,000.00. 

 

The main factors were some annual and quarterly insurance and administrative costs that were incurred in January, as well as utility costs being higher at this time of year. 

 

Thank you for your generosity!

 

 


 

Those of you who are in need of Offering Envelopes, there is a sign-up sheet on the table in the Narthex.

 

Please sign with your envelope number so we may get new ones to you.
