    Warm Greetings from the Finance Office!
    Well…the winter season brings the snow and COLD weather! At least these are the happenings outside. The good Lord has blessed us with the warm comforts of our homes. And now on to the happenings here in the finance office at St. Peter……


    We are slightly under our projected income in both tithes/offerings at this point of 2018-2019 year.  As far as the Debt Reduction projections, we are currently at about 70% of these projections. We are in the first quarter of this fiscal year and hopefully will be able to offset the shortfall of our projected income in the coming months. The budget for 2018-2019 was revised and all ministries made cuts to their budgets. Over the next few months we will begin the budget process for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. We will be looking very closely for ways to reduce the expenses here at St. Peter but need to keep in mind that many of our overhead costs are fixed (utilities, insurance, etc.).
     “Simply Giving” is a great way to know that your tithe/offerings continue to support the mission and ministries at St. Peter. For more info….please contact the Finance Office X208 and we will be more than happy to answer your questions or help you to get set up with this program. You can also download the St. Peter app to give an offering, once the app is downloaded it will connect you to the “Giving” link. This too is a great way to support the ministries here at St. Peter.
    We have begun the process of year end procedures.
    Please know that you are all in my prayers. See you in worship!
