“Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ.”– I Peter 4:10-11
As members of the body of Christ, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church now looks to see how we can serve our community and our world with the gifts we have been given. Council has prepared a preliminary Ministry Spending Plan for 2019. Some aspirational budget items include: additional property funds to pay for a Roof Care Master Plan, a 2% salary increase for all staff except Pastor Steve who will receive an extra Sunday of vacation, and an additional $5,000 to apply toward the mortgage. These items among others represent a 12% increase in regular offerings.
The Estimate of Giving letters and response cards will help establish the scope of our ministry together this year. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. Responses can be placed in the collection box at the Info Center table or the offering plate and will be consecrated during worship this Sunday, February 24. Based on those estimates, Council will then finalize the Ministry Spending Plan for 2019. God’s peace be with you all!
