CONGREGATIONAL FORUM AND MEETING | Adoption of the Ministry Budget for 2024
On Sunday, December 3, at 4:00 p.m., we will hold a Budget Forum in the Sanctuary and by Zoom, specifically to answer questions about the proposed 2024 budget. This will be the best time for you to have any questions answered as representatives of the Church Council and church staff will be present. Copies of the ministry plan will be been mailed to the congregation in advance to this date.
On Sunday, December 10, there will be a congregational meeting held at both worship services to vote on the proposed 2024 budget. As our practice, a congregational meeting will be called to order at the 8:30 a.m. worship service and reconvened at the 11:00 a.m. worship service.
Since this congregational meeting is in two parts, it will not be possible to answer questions from the floor. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we desire to limit the amount time spent handling business of the church during the worship hour. The Church Council sincerely encourages all of your questions and wants to give you the opportunity to have all questions answered. The Budget Forum will be the time to ask your questions. If you have questions but are not able to attend the forum, you may contact any Church Council member, by telephone or email, to ask about the proposed budget.
It is the wish of the Church Council to communicate openly with each member of the congregation and make every attempt to keep every member informed and aware of the financial accountability of Holy Trinity. We welcome your input and questions and hope that you will seek answers to all of your questions from our church leaders.
