Financial Update

July expenses were under budget, but so was the church income; we appreciate all who are sending in their offering by mail even when they’re headed out of town. Thank you for your faithful support of Phinney’s many ministries!

For an update that will include August numbers, please look for an announcement in a future bulletin.

Have you ever considered using Simply Giving for regular electronic contributions?. Now would be a good time to sign up. Due to lower attendance in worship, summer time offerings predictably dip, while most monthly church expenses stay the same—regular scheduled contributions via Simply Giving help reduce that discrepancy! Over 90 PRLC households currently participate in this program, which is easy to set up, to change or to stop. You can choose to contribute from a checking account or via credit card, and specify the general operating budget and/or designated funds.

Electronic fund transfers give you peace of mind that your stewardship commitment is taken care of and that PRLC receives predictable revenues, even when you’re away from home. And you’ll never need to play “catch up” at the end of the year.

For more information, please request a sign-up form at Grace Station, find the “Online Giving” button on our website’s home page, or contact me in the office. Thank you!
