God continues to richly bless our church family. Your commitment and generosity is to be commended especially as we navigate through the pandemic. The leadership is committed to being faithful stewards of the many blessings God has poured on us.
The Shepherds have asked the Financial Planning Team to assemble a budget for each fiscal year. This budget helps us best manage the funding of the many ministries of MacArthur Park.
After the Financial Planning Team gathers ministries’ budget needs and assembles a plan it is presented to the Shepherds for review and approval.
A very important part of this process is asking each of our MacArthur Park families to prayerfully consider their plan for giving during the next year. The leadership has been using this process for more than 25 years to help manage financial resources.
The Shepherds have committed that our yearly budget will be based not he total amount of funds indicated on our yearly Family Commitment Cards.
In preparation for our annual financial plan, every family is asked to complete a Family Commitment Card. This is an indication of what each family will plan to give during the next year. These cards are kept confidential.
Each family is asked to prayerfully consider what they will contribute to the ongoing work of the MacArthur Park Church of Christ. Families are asked to indicate that number as a weekly amount on the Family Commitment Cards.
Families are asked to complete these cards on or before October 17, 2021. Your participation is very important in this process as it helps us set a budget for 2022.
We know some families are able to give more during the next year and some less. The amount indicated on the card is for planning purposes. No one monitors an individual’s giving. We hope your family will embrace this process of financial stewardship by participating in the planning process. Please feel free to ask any Shepherd if you need more information about the process.
