I just received FBC’s 2008 year-end financial report and a year-to-date balance sheet yesterday. I was joyful to learn that we spent FAR less than what was given and were able to use some of the extra to surprise-bless our missionaries, help some families in need in our church, and then put the remainder into savings for a future building!
With stories of financial hardship striking many churches around our valley, we are amazed at God’s grace to us, especially with the current economic storm that our region, nation and world is going through. Know that we are striving to be careful stewards of all that is given and do not take that responsibility lightly.
If you’re a member of FBC, you can look in the ‘Finance News‘ section of our website to see stats on FBC’s giving and savings. That section is updated every month or two with the latest information.
