Our 2020 Budget
I want to begin by thanking everyone who has supported the mission and ministry of Front Street in 2019 with your financial gifts.  The wonderful ministry that is done out of our church could not be accomplished without us all contributing our resources.
Hopefully, by now, you have received a pledge card for the 2020 Budget.  As you pray about how the Lord would lead you to support our church next year, I want to share a bit of information about the budget that has been approved by our Visioning Team.  You numbers people will like this information, the rest of you might find this a bit dry.  However, there is more about the ministry that has been accomplished in the past year in the letter that accompanies your pledge card.
History of the budget over the past few years:
If you compare the 2020 Budget to our recent peak in 2018, you will notice a drop of almost 6%.  Compared to the 2019 Budget, the 2020 number represents a 1.5% decrease.  The vast majority of these decreases have come from more accurate budgeting on the part of church leadership.  Also, one of our apportionment amounts paid to the NC Conference no longer exists.  So that resulted in a decrease in spending as well.
If you would like a copy of the 2020 Budget, you may pick one up in the church office.  However, for those of you who would prefer less detail, here are some of the major budget section totals.
Church Office Admin and Building $763,587
Church Office Admin and Building  Operations
Christian Education $58,100
Music Program     $22,200
Worship $14,100
Missions & Benevolences $154,434
Again, thank you for your support of the 2019 Budget; and, I am confident that with everyone contributing we can end the year in strong fashion.  As we prepare for Pledge Sunday on November 24, I know we will all seek the Lord’s guidance on how he would have us join in supporting Front Street’s ministry together.
