Money MattersWe are wrapping up the books on the 2012-13 church fiscal year (July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013) as this is being written. It looks as though we are going to have a small deficit for the year. We had a significant shortfall (9%) in pledge income; but expenses were about 5% under budget as well. Fundraisers and collections and miscellaneous did better than expected, so total operating income was just 6% under budget. The net result is a small deficit of $2,836 for the year. We will be sending confirmation statements for your new year pledges in August, and will include an additional statement for those who have not yet completed their 2012-13 pledge. Please try to clean up any deficits in your pledge account as soon as possible.
