Dear Members and Friends,
As we wrap up the Fall Giving Campaign and prepare for the 2023 Budget, we wanted to share with you the pledged amounts and some information comparing last year’s pledges with the current totals received.
# Of Pledges $ of Pledges
2022 71 $300,000
2023 55 $237,000
Last year, based on the $300,000 pledged, the Church budget included an approximately $50,000 deficit. Over the next few weeks the Board and the Church Staff will be working to align the 2023 budget with the expected receipts based on the pledges.
As you can see, the amounts pledged are lower than last year and as such will likely mean the Board and Staff will need to carefully consider how to be fiscally responsible in their stewardship of the church budget.
If you have not done so, please prayerfully consider filling out the pledge card so the Board and Staff have an accurate amount to consider in their budget analysis for 2023. As always thank you for your generosity to Royal Redeemer and we pray that God continues to use the many blessings He gives us to Live out the Love of the King!
With Sincere Gratitude,
2023 Fall Giving Campaign Team Lead
