Noted, on the income side, Michele, Keith and Debbie have worked with a consultant to clean up the balance sheet. The designation of an “Earmarked Holy Spirit” is from the roll over. Income is on target.
Expenses: The general guideline on the budget has been to divide funds as 20% space, 40% on ourselves and 40% on others. The budget reflects 53% on others. Holy Spirit is $30K. Deficit of $6,300 – can be covered. The suggestion is to revisit the categories, but not at this immediate time. The Church of the Saviour and Dayspring funds have been restored.
Interest is from Manna and may shift.
