Just a reminder for all you FUMC folks out there to fill out a 'Surplus Feedback Form' (available in the foyer of the church, on green half-sheets of paper). We've got a surplus of over $20,000 from last year's budget, and are working to discern -- thoughtfully and prayerfully -- how we should spend it. Since we've already got a very healthy contingency fund (i.e., money put away for our upcoming roof replacement) and enough in our church budget for established programs of the church, we're looking for your ideas as to where to spend these funds. Should we give some away to non-profit organisations within the Vancouver area? Should we contribute more to our denominational groups? Should we support overseas missions? Should we donate to Christian educational institutions?
We are looking for your feedback, and the forms are due by Sunday May 12th. So please do give us your input -- every voice counts!
