Financial Update & End of Year Giving
December 21, 2020
Merry Christmas, Bridgeway family!
I hope this finds you well and finishing up your Christmas shopping in preparation for a busy week ahead. We wanted to provide a brief financial update and make a request as you consider some potential end of the year giving. As you may know, at the beginning of 2020 we proposed a budget that would have had us operate in the red by a little over $30,000 for the year. What we could never have projected is that we would experience a global pandemic that would have us unable to meet in person for the better part of the year. But God… He is always faithful! We are excited to announce that we are projecting we will meet our budgeted income this year, despite the pandemic, and are looking good to operate in the black (just barely) for the first time in a long time! Thank you so much for your faithfulness in giving this year. I know it has been a hard year for so many, for so many reasons. We hope to be able to have a Core Gathering in January where we will discuss this in more detail.
We know at the end of the year many consider additional giving to not for profit organizations and so, along those lines, we are asking if you would please prayerfully consider a gift to Bridgeway Community Church. We would ask that you consider this gift over and above your normal tithe. Your giving to Bridgeway allows us not only to continue ministering to our community in Fishers, but also allows us to reach Indianapolis and places around the world like Mexico, Nicaragua, and Ukraine. All of your donations are tax-deductible but need to be in before the 31st of December to be included in this year’s tax return. Thank you for another great year of ministry together. We're excited about what 2021 has in store for our church and community!
Have A Blessed Christmas,
Kenny Panduku, Lead Pastor
