Finances

From the Treasurer…

If you were able to be at church on Sunday, or join online or Zoom, you know that we ended December in a very good place, given everything we have had to live through this past year!.  Although the giving was slow over the summer and early fall, it has picked up and we are indeed blessed to have such wonderful financial support. Pledges for December came in at $101,000!  That truly helped us “catch up” in our operating budget, leaving us only a shortfall of $17,000 at year end!  Thank you everyone!  Some of the ideas given were to share what our utilities are, how much do we pay for water?  Electric?  In the coming months we will share our expenses that must be covered to keep the church doors open.  In other words our “household budget”.  If there is something you would like to see, please let me know so we can provide that information in the United eblast.   

We are nearing the end of our renovation on the inside, and are looking forward to building an operating budget for the 2022-2023 church fiscal year.  On behalf of the Finance Committee, the Council and Staff, we are all so grateful to all of you for your continued support, and look forward to building our future with each and every one of you.

CUC is also blessed to have such dedicated volunteers that work very diligently throughout the weeks and year to make sure our finances are in order, deposits made, bills paid, etc.  Next time you see them, please add your thanks to mine to Ruthann Moomy, Finance Chair and Linda Tafoya, Financial Secretary, who both make such a difference in the life of our church.  Thank you Ruthann and Linda! 

Blessings,

Terri Townsend
