2015yearlyreportThanks to all those who came out for the church summit yesterday.  We had a great time thanking God for all that He did to provide for MERCYhouse's 16 year of ministry.  Here is a summary of what we heard:

Income

MERCYhouse took in $507,434 for Fiscal year 2015.  This includes congregational offering of $227,545 and outside giving of $223,486 and another $56,403 in rental income, church planting pass through funds, etc.  This is a 12%/year average increase in giving from MERCYhouse over the last five years.   

Expenses

MERCYhouse spent $492,489 for fiscal year 2015.  The big ticket items are facilities at about $95,000 and staff at about $260,000.  

Looking Ahead

As was stated in this Sunday's sermon and in the meeting, the way ahead is greater generosity among the givers of MERCYhouse.  We are improving but need to give generously as worship to God which results in the full funding of this vital ministry.  This would be especially helpful to your church staff who continues to raise 60% of the funds that go toward salaries.  See this LINK for more details and set up your online giving below:

summitSunday, July 26th is the date for our biannual church summit.  We will worship together at 10am and then have a luncheon and church summit around noon.  We should be done around 2pm.  This will be an opportunity to pray together for our church, review that finances from the past year, and vote on next year's spending plan.  It is always encouraging to see how God provides for our church and challenging as we look at the opportunities for ministry in our valley.
