Church finances are usually opaque and mysterious. The leaders have a clear understanding of what the financial position of the church is but the people generating most of the income too often remain clueless until it is too late, when the money gets tight. As has been our intention to be transparent in all things, there are occassions when sharing too much can cause unintentional harm, but in the case of church finances, there is no reason to keep secrets.
This money post is the first of what we hope will be a monthly report. The expense categories are condensed so you get a broad view without getting bogged down in the details. Who knows, you may not care! But if you do -- take a moment to glance at the illustration. If you have any questions, send them along with a check.
