Elder's Update

The New Life Church elders are recognizing the need to communicate better. The elder's are aiming at a weekly update in the bulletins. The first one is a quick recap of our Budget and Elections meeting which most people missed on account of the weather:

On Sunday night December 28th we met to rejoice over the highlights of 2008 and review and approve the budget for 2009. The meeting was rescheduled because of weather and not many people made it. Here are a few of the high points:

Your generous and faithful giving met every penny of our needs in 2008...with 1% extra...not too much...not too little!
We approved a budget for 2009 that is roughly the same size as it was last year ($556,559). The Elders believe it wise to be conservative this year.
We established Special Projects funds, for designated giving over and above our tithe to the General Fund, to focus our attention on these specific needs and priorities.
  • Missionary support increases,
  • Robinwood Facility Improvements
  • Riverfalls Piano
We also licensed Matt Vorhees and Aaron Orendorff as ministers of the gospel.
If you have questions you'd like the elders to address, please leave a comment here or write a note on a Keeping In Touch card in church.
