Remember that in our 2018 budget, about 93% of our financial resources go to things we have to pay for: salaries, utilities, building upkeep, etc. That leaves us with about 7% to do the things we want to do: help our community–through Sheridan Story, Little Kitchen Food Shelf, 3rd Sunday Offerings–; educational opportunities, community outreach, and other communities.
We understand the 93% must be paid in order to support our mission. But we need to recognize that by building our donations, we can build that 7% to be a bigger number. And do more work in our community.
You can give to Mt. Carmel in lots of different ways. In our Share section, you can learn about all the ways you can use and give your spiritual gifts and talents, like reading scripture or planning events. But you can also give your money, which not only supports the church’s day-to-day operations but also supports our participation in God’s work in the world.
