Stewardship and Finance
On October 24, the church business meeting discusses the 2019 Ministry Budget. In addition to examining the budget, that meeting elects committees, church officers, and deacons. We hope as many of you as possible will attend it.
The bi-annual Audit has been completed and the results have been conveyed by the auditing firm, Colonial CPA Group of Chesapeake/Yorktown, to our Trustees. A copy of the Audit Report is available for examination in church office.
Many good things are going on with the tithes and offerings you are contributing to the Kingdom Work at Walnut Hills. GriefShare is helping 12 people, about one-third church, two-thirds community, work through losses they have suffered. Financial Peace University also is helping 12 people, about half church and half community, become better stewards of their finances. Music, youth, missions, Bible study, preaching, benevolence, and many other ministries are continuing. Your church “tithes” a portion of your gifts by contributing to larger Baptist organizations such as the Baptist Association of Virginia and Peninsula Baptist Association. Among other things, these gifts assist in sending missionaries, supporting minister education, and, of great relevance right now, providing relief and assistance to people impacted by disasters like Florence. We thank you for your financial support for these ministries but, note that to sustain and expand our ministries over the rest of this year and into next year, we need, as a church, to expand our giving well beyond its recent pace.
