Hello Friends in Christ,
We are already half-way through 2019 and still thriving. Overall, finances are stable and the future is looking positive. Thank you for your continued faith in the church and our mission. Please find below the June financial reports. We continue to cover all of our expenses with contributions due to not having a full-time rector. Year-to-date, All Saints has a net profit of $3,011.16. We successfully transitioned to the new payroll provider in early July and are on our way to more cost savings. We earned $1,228.55 in credit card rewards YTD by shifting how we pay our bills. Also, this month we purchased a new hot water heater and 3-year subscription to back-up software.
As you are traveling and spending time with God in nature, don't forget you can still give your pledge on PayPal at the "donate" button on the church website https://www.allsaintsappleton.org.
When I think about how my contributions are used at All Saints, it is easy to focus on the business side of the ins and outs of money. These past few months have taught me what a difference All Saints makes in people's lives. These differences are a result of your kind contributions to carry out God's work. My husband and I were touched by the shut-in gift of a small pink teddy bear, my father sits with a prayer shawl from All Saints daily, I enjoyed the sounds of children giggling and running at the family fun night when I was at the church for a business meeting, and love seeing the beautiful flowers around the inside and outside of the church. How has God touched you through All Saints?
