Contributions to the General Fund continue to exceed our giving of last year. In February those amounted to about $51,000 which is 11.5% more than last February. Expenses for the month exceeded our income by about $9,800. These are only 1.4% greater than those of a year ago. For the year so far our giving to the General Fund is around $129,400. Our expenses have been about $128,400.
While the Building Fund income for February was slightly down from a year ago, the giving to that fund for the year has just about equaled our mortgage expense. This fund continues to be stable.
As we look ahead, with the formation of a Call Committee for a second pastor, we know that this will impact our General Fund expenses. We trust that we will meet this challenge as Zion continues to move forward. Thanks to all who contribute with their time, talents, and financial contributions.
