Financial Future of our Church—Informative Meeting September 28, 2014 Following Worship:  All members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to attend an informal meeting hosted by the Session on Sunday, September 28th, following the service.  As you know, Session placed a moratorium on all discretionary spending in June and have just extended the moratorium until December 31, 2014.  Like most small churches, we are having financial difficulties and are quickly depleting our reserve cash just meeting ordinary expenses.  The Session will present a report on our present situation.  Session felt it important to explain the church financial condition prior to the stewardship season.  The presentation will be brief, followed by time for questions and suggestions for solutions, both short- and long-term.  It is important to have as many members present as possible.  We are all in this church family together and can only find a way forward together.  PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND ON SEPTEMBER 28TH.
