Did you get your STATEMENT in the mail? Sounds so ominous, doesn't it? Don't be scared. It's just to let you know how your giving compares to your pledge. If yours says you're a little behind, you're not alone :). We are nearly $20,000 below our giving plan through the middle of August. The established budget is the amount we need to maintain our ministries and add a full-time pastor.
It's easy to let those offerings slide when we're out of town for vacation or camp, but please remember, we want to be in good financial shape as we prepare to call a new pastor. Don't forget -- you can give online here: http://www.incarnationlutheran.com/giving.html
