TBA & Sanctuary
Two meetings will be held to review and then vote on the First Church budget for 2018.
On Sunday, January 14, 2018, an informational meeting will be held at 11:45 am (location TBA) where members of the Ministry of Stewardship, Finance and Administration (SFA) and the Budget Committee will share details about the upcoming budget.
On Sunday, January 28, 2018 an official congregational meeting will be held in the Sanctuary following the 10 am service to vote on the budget and endowment recommendations.
The budget is prepared by SFA in consultation with the Personnel and Stewardship Committees and staff. It goes through several iterations as the various needs of the church are considered and the results of the fall Pledge Campaign, where congregation members make their financial commitments for the coming year, are known. It is reviewed by the Church Council at their December meeting and they make the final decision about what will be presented to the congregation.
Also, save the date, Sunday, February 4, 2018, for the First Church Annual Meeting to be held at church. This is an official congregational meeting.
