The income/offering to the General Fund in March again exceeds that given in March of 2022.  This month’s increase amounts to almost $1,800 per Sunday.  At the same time, our General Fund expenses for the month have exceeded our monthly income by about $29,000.  This month’s deficit is primarily due to greater participation in our youth programs (a wonderful problem!), increased food costs for the Wednesday Night Suppers, and an additional payroll. Year-to-date General Fund giving is up over 11%

Financial Report 20202.10

September was an encouraging financial month for Zion.  Our General Fund income/offering for the month was 6.6% higher than what we received in September 2021.  Our weekly average income for the month was just a few dollars short of $15,000.   For the year to date, we are still lagging behind last year’s income by 3.2%.  But with more months like September, we will be closing that gap. Our expenses for September are considerably greater than they were a year ago.
