6.30.20 Weekly Giving, Basement Update, Recycle Update

The giving numbers for 6/24/20 - 6/30/20 are as follows: Weekly giving: $8008.98 Weekly budget: $7612 Percent met: 105.2% YTD giving: $170,045.86 YTD budget: $197,912 Percent met: 85.9% Of the weekly giving, $678.98 was from Venmo and $7,330.00 was from mailed contributions. The total received for the June Mission of the Month, Bibles for Grand Haven, was $735.00. In addition to the weekly giving, $3,300 was given toward the ServPro restoration and basement carpet replacement. BASEMENT FLOODING UPDATE: The basement flooding has caused an unexpected financial expense for 2020. Our insurance policy has a $10,000 flood damage limit, and the total cost for ServPro restoration and carpet replacement for church and the parsonage exceeds $50,000. If you would like to contribute towards this $40,000 need, please send in checks or venmo funds with "Basement Project" in the memo line. We expect work to be done in late July or early August, so this fundraiser will run from now until July 31st. Please remember this should only be given in addition to your general fund gifts as we need to meet our operational obligations as well. Thank you for considering giving to this cause. Any questions can be addressed to Jodi Deur, Chair of Finance.
