We did it!
We can always count on you all, and we are so thankful! Within a few weeks, our giving has increased by $3,578/week, surpassing our goal!
At Woodland Hills, it’s always been our practice to let our church community know when we have financial needs, and trust that God will work through all of us to meet those needs. We find ourselves in one of those situations now.
Our offerings are currently behind budget for our current fiscal year, which ends next June. If we can increase our offerings by $3400 per week and eliminate the current deficit, we’re confident that we’ll have the resources to keep our ministry areas running without interruption. So we’re hoping you’ll consider helping us close this gap by becoming a Sustainer.
It’s an honor to be a part of what God is doing in the world, and through our church. And we want to see that impact continue!
How you can help
Regular, repeating financial contributions are extremely helpful in budgeting situations like these. It’s pretty simple: we’re able to plan our budget much more accurately if we can forecast how much people plan to give. With that in mind, we’re asking:
- Will you consider signing up for a new donation schedule?
- If you’re already on a donation schedule, will you consider an increase in your giving?
This is do-able!
Increasing our weekly offerings by $3400 could happen in a number of ways, but it will likely be because a lot of people work together.
For example, we can reach our goal if 170 people make new or increased commitments of $20 per week. As Greg has said in the past, giving at WH has usually been like a bunch of ants working together to carry a big log. We hope you’ll join in the log-moving, and keep the ministries and mission of Woodland strong!
A thank-you gift
If you’re willing to help us close this offering gap with increased financial contributions, we want to say thanks with our 2023 Learning to Love Together Woodland Hills t-shirt. When you sign up for a Sustain donation schedule, we’ll ask you what size shirt you’d like, and you’ll be able to pick it up on a Sunday (October 22 through November 12) or we’ll mail it to you.
Unable to contribute, but still want a shirt? They’ll be available for purchase at church through November 12, or online here.
