Here we are in the year 2019, a long ways away from the year 2000 when a lot of the world thought that all our electronic items would stop working but didn’t.
As you can see from the Financial Report below for January, our church is about $5,700 behind but that’s not the whole story. The good news is that everyone who gave to the church in January has given more than January 2018 by over 20% which is very good. The church has also received almost a $1,000 from people who watch our services on the internet.
Pastor John, on Sunday, talked about a person who was watching our service from India. So while the income is good, what is better is that Lakeview UMC is reaching people, not only our homebound, but people we never reached before with the gospel and that is very good news.
The church’s expenses were higher in January 2019 over January 2018 by about 6% mostly for some one-time expenses that will not repeat for the rest of the year. So good job everyone and God’s Blessings to All.
