Year-End Financial Update
December 20, 2019
Merry Christmas! I hope this finds you well and finishing up your Christmas shopping in preparation for a busy week next week. 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 2019 we proposed a budget that would have had us operate in the red by a little over $40,000 for the year. There is good news and bad news on that front. The good news is that we will come in under that projection. We are now projecting a budget shortfall of just over $16,000 for 2019. While we are grateful to come in less than projected, the bad news is that we are still operating in the red for another year. Join us at our next Core Gathering on January 26th to receive some more detail about our budget from 2019 and to see the proposed budget for 2020.
There is still time to close the gap on this projected shortfall. We know that at the end of the year many consider additional giving to not for profit organizations and so, along those lines, we are asking you to 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. Thank you for another great year of ministry together. We're excited about what 2020 has in store for our church!
Have A Blessed Christmas,
Kenny Panduku, Lead Pastor @ Bridgeway Community Church
