Finance News Another year and its time to plan for 2020. We need to have a base of funds to cover our overhead as well as our programs. Last year we did cover everything, This included a New Furnace, thanks to a small group of donors. without them this could never hap- pen. We took out funds from the Planned Giving Fund throughout the year to have enough to cover our expenses. This amount came to $17,000. We set our Budget on the very basic expenses. Weekly we show the amount that is short on this Budget. We still have money in the Planned Giving Fund, This money has been from members who have past away and from friends and relatives on their behalf. This month sunday, January 19 as our commitment sunday. we are Blessed with a opportunity to show that we are willing to give as much as we can in support of Gods work thru SUMC. A commitment card will be sent out to all those on our mailing list. Fill out the card and bring it in on the 19th. God loves a generous giver.
