Updated: Financial UPDATE June 30th
Our giving receipts through June 2017 are $151,380, which is $36,941 less than our budget needs. As a church, we've kept expenses below last year's level, but not enough to eliminate our cash flow problem.
With NO RESERVE CUSHION remaining, we need to carefully watch our spending. It is more important than ever that we remember to turn off the lights and turn off the air conditioning if you are the last in your group to leave. Before you head out the door for summer, please check the status of your church pledge and get caught up. We always sweat out the summer months and this year, we don't have any cushion. If you're one of those who typically donates in one or two lump sums for the year, now would be a good time! You may update your giving profile at giving.wgumc.org or send an email to
