September Financial Update

Dear Morning Star Family, 

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying life as you begin to get ready for the holiday season. Ministry at Morning Star is solid, with timely teaching and faith-strengthening group ministry all throughout the week, geared to help us lead people to pursue a Jesus-first life. From the Foster Parents’ Night Out to the highly appreciated Worship Night, we’ve shared many moments where people fall more in love with Jesus. We’re really looking forward to baptisms during our Sunday services on December 4. Thank you for being part of this wonderful church family! Here is some money news to keep you in the loop.        

 

SEPTEMBER GIVING REPORT / MINISTRY FUND 
Budgeted: $155,000
Actual: $128,415.20
Difference: -$26,584.80 (-17.15%)


2022 JANUARY-SEPTEMBER BUDGET REPORT / MINISTRY FUND 
Budgeted: $1,290,000
Actual: $1,440,079.74
Difference: +$150,079.74 (+11.63%)

 

UPCOMING  PROJECTED GIVING / MINISTRY FUND 
OCTOBER: $160,000
NOVEMBER $180,000

 

COMMENTS: As you can see, September giving was down. The trend over the previous three months, however, was solidly upward. The next three months will give us a good indication of what is realistic for our ministry budget in 2023, so please be in prayer as we plan for next year moving forward. 

 

BENEVOLENCE: I’m wondering if some of you are on the verge of being in a tough spot financially, so I want to remind you that we have a benevolence fund available to help those in our church family in need of financial assistance. You’re welcome to inquire by coming into or calling the church offices, or sending an email to info@mstar.church.     

    

GIVING: If you would like to partner financially with Morning Star Community Church in disciple-making work and/or set up automatic giving, just click HERE.     

  

THANK YOU for your faithfulness in praying and giving. I’m so grateful for you and so glad to be your executive pastor. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  

 

In all things, Jesus first! 

John
