With COVID-19, Murder Hornets, and everything else that has happened this year, we could use some good news. Our net operating income is currently ahead of our budget by $122,203! That's a tremendous start to this year and something to definitely celebrate and thank God for.
We will continue to send out these weekly updates, highlighting generosity and also giving you a clear look at our financial situation at Messiah. We know God will provide for all of our needs, but these past 6 months, we've seen Him work through you to bless us financially in a tremendous way.
A Financial Report from Erik Borgmeyer
June was a month where our tithes and offerings seemed to lag, but we've started July in a very strong way. We need an average of just under $39,000 each week during July, and we received over $53,000 in tithes and offerings during the first week. Thank you all for your commitment to God's work through Messiah.
I'm starting to reach out to people that have not quite completed turning in the money the pledged to the Forward in Faith campaign. We're nearly able to move in to our new building, which will be tremendously exciting, but that also means we will have larger operational expenses as we have to pay larger utility bills, cleaning bills, and other expenses. We know God is going to use our new facility to help us reach more people with the Gospel message, but we also know it will be a continuing financial commitment for us all.
