STEWARDSHIP

What gifts do you have to offer?

Stewardship is about participation because participation means giving of oneself  You are invited to participate in any way that feels right for you. Here are some possibilities within our church operation:

 

COUNTERS NEEDED: to count the offering each week. Additional volunteers are needed for this job. It is not difficult, and with sufficient participants, rotation during the year would be reasonable. We are currently stretched to the limit for May & July and really need help. Joan Nolting is willing to train as required, and the rewards are many! Contact Fred Wilke at 250-954-0477, or email: fcwilke@shaw.ca  Thank you.

Third Quarter Donation Statements – The 3rd quarter statements are in your mail boxes in the narthex.  Please pick them up.

Treasury Update

I am delighted to report that our financial situation has continued to improve in 2019.  Most notably in April & Easter, we were blessed with very strong Offerings.  The wonderful news is that we now have a Surplus as we head into summer! My sincere thanks to all for this dramatic turn-around in our financial affairs.

Yours faithfully. John Musgreave, Treasurer
