Good morning and welcome to our worship. It is good to have everyone with us in person today and we are glad to have those of you who are joining us online.
As we are still in the beginnings of a new year let me fill you in on some financial news from the church.
Our 2022 budget is now available to view online at pacoc.net/budget or you can request a paper copy from the office. Here are some highlights:
- Our weekly need has increased by 2.5%. Please consider an appropriate increase in your contributions to reflect this increase.
- We have added support for an additional Children's Home (Lubbock Children's Home). We now help support 6 children's home.
- We have added an additional mission point in Colombia, South America - Cristian & Ana Corrales in Bucaramanga. They are overseen by Great Cities Missions.
- Our Grace Offering this year is $154,200 which includes many of our Outreach Ministries, including Barnabas Center and Local Assistance. Grace Offering will be Easter Sunday, April 17.
- We have had to increase our building maintenance budget to account for anticipated repairs and improvements as the building ages.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact Blake Smith or any of the Elders. We encourage all our members to generously give to the ministry of the Park Avenue Church of Christ. Contributions can be deposited in the boxes at the rear of the Worship Center, or you can mail your contributions to the church office, or you can use our online giving platform, Tithely. Thank you so much for your ongoing financial support.
Another financial note: Due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to sell our two lots and use those proceeds to help pay off the Ark. We still hope to sell those in the near future. However, in light of that we will use at least a portion of our Fifth Sunday Contribution on January 30 and apply that to the mortgage.
Covenant Sunday has been moved to Sunday, February 6. Please make plans to be here as we recommit ourselves to the Lord and our service through this church.
