Zion’s offerings in July 2022 were $59,900, about $9,500 more than July 2021. July 2022 was a five Sunday month as compared to July 2021 which was a four Sunday month.
August 2021 was a five-Sunday month so the offering year-to-date comparison will even out in next month’s report. For July 2022 year to date, Zion’s total income is about $427,000 which is about $5,000 less than July 2021 year-to-date total income.
As Zion is reestablishing programs and staff, and with utility costs rising, expenses for July 2022 are about $11,000 more than July of 2021. July 2022 year-to-date expenses are greater than July 2021 year-to-date expenses by about $70,000. For July 2022 year to date, Zion’s expenses have exceeded its income by about $44,000.
The Finance Committee anticipated expenses would exceed income while Zion rebuilds its programs and staff. The dollars received from offerings, building rent, fees, and miscellaneous income along with the PPP and ERC programs permitted Zion to sustain and rebuild. Thanks to all who are financially contributing to Zion.
Correction: June 2022 year-to-date total income compared to June 2021 year-to-date total income was actually $15,000 less rather than the $5,000 less stated in last month’s Finance Committee’s report.
