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.
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.
