Your Session sat for its regular monthly meeting earlier this week. The main order of business was consideration of the 2020 church budget, which we approved.
For the most part, next year’s budget maintains the status quo – revenues and expenses are about the same as this year.
Pledge income is forecast to be up a little, but not as much as our goal. Expenses are flat, and we still make up the difference between the two by taking a large amount from our endowment fund.
There is no imperative for further expense cuts, but (except for some small adjustments) neither were we able to add programming. We’ll have the details for you at our annual congregational meeting.
That’s it for this month (and 2019). Thanks for reading.
