Terry Toole discussed the budget developed by the council. Our dependence on pledges as a source of revenue in keeping the church functioning was emphasized. Pledges did decrease this year, a trend we intend to reverse with our next stewardship drive. A summary of the stewardship results:

For 2016, the 97 pledges totaled $197,400, which represented a decrease of $23,000 from the 2015 pledge income total of $220,800. The breakdown of the year over year changes:

  • 31 pledges for 2016 were increased over 2015 for a gain of $15,400
  • 20 pledges for 2016 where decreased from 2015 for a decline of $21,700
  • 10 pledges from 2015 were not renewed representing a decline of $17,000
