ECV Forum: Finances

ECV Forum: Finances
Saturday, March 8th, 1:00-2:30pm
180 Colony Road

So, geez, money and the church; everyone's favorite topic... :-P But this is church budgeting ECV-style! We are stoked to have the opportunity to use the funds with which God has blessed us to support the things He cares about in the world: righting injustice, caring for the poor, advancing the gospel. Spending money has never been so much fun.

Seriously, the board of trustees (Katie Smith, Kathy Maskell, Kathy Saperstein, Jeremy Blum and I) met last week to brainstorm a bit about what kinds of things we can and ought to do financially as a church and it was a blast.

Saturday, March 8th at 1pm, we want to share with you what we've been thinking about, get your input, gather the collective creativity of the community and move forward to start putting our money into the things God is doing in our city and around the world. More will be coming soon on this topic (charts, graphs; if you love data, this is your thing); we really want to handle the money God has given us with integrity and the best way we know to do that is to be transparent.

So, come, join us!
