It is a Numbers World…
We talk often using numbers. What is your phone number? The Dow is up 600 points, the price of gas is down to $3.85, your blood count is low, and the temperature hit 101 today. Yes, our life is full numbers and St, Matthias is no different. The church numbers that keep me up at night are: there are 600 parishioners giving about $24,000 a month or about $6,000 a week. We have bills that average around $7800 a week or $31,200 a month. The church needs to raise at least $70,000 in additional income yearly to balance the budget. We currently have 125 people giving through Give Central, our on line giving program. We could use another100 more parishioners giving through Give Central
Friends of the Grape
Today’s number is 62. Yes it is only 62 more days until the Friends of the Grape Wine Auction on Sunday, October 7, 2012. The Wine Auction and the revenue it creates truly helps the parish meet its financial needs. In the next few weeks this bulletin space will be asking parishioners to help with auction items, sponsorship and volunteer opportunities.
If you have not signed up for electronic giving please consider doing so. It is painless, quick and it will give the Church some peace of mind. Go to givecentral.org to sign up.
