FINANCING THE ACTION PLAN
The intent of the proposed initiatives is to bring in new members who, implicitly, will bring new sources of church income with them.
We are seeking an additional 20%, about $25,000 more, in church giving for calendar year 2015 to invest in the future of our congregation. Once established and operational, these initiatives should be self-sustaining. They will result in more youth participation, attract additional members, and bring renewed spirit to our fellowship.
For backup financing these initiatives in the near future, the Vestry proposes that funding be budgeted for a three year period from various sources such as excess organ funds, sponsorships from various church groups, and perhaps loans from church endowments. We will also pursue the possibility of diocesan grants for new programs.
