Finance Committee Update

The Finance Committee would like to update the congregation on the financial condition of the Church and our current performance.  Let us start with our assets.  We have a very strong balance sheet.  At the end of September our total assets were $809,052, of which $215,792 were restricted, meaning that they can only be used for specific purposes.  As we mentioned in our last update the Church consistently has a strong balance sheet.  Because of this, the Church Council at the end of 2020 decided to increase the amount of Outreach that we give each year and adopted a policy that it would be at least 50% of our annual budget.

So, how did we do last year?  Our total yearend expenses were $310,386 total, of which $171,466 or 55% was Outreach.  This year we budgeted $160,648 for Outreach, which was 50% of our total budget.  Year-to-date we have given our partner charities and student scholars $125,605 which is 51% of our total spending.  For the second year in a row, we will meet or exceed the 50% guideline.  Despite Covid-19 our contributions continue to grow each year.  As a result, we are well positioned to continue with this benevolent policy.

If making donations from your financial institutions or brokerage accounts please include your name and address and please use our mailing address of LTUMC, P.O. Box 83, Lake Toxaway, NC 28747 as we do not have a physical mailbox at the church.  Thank you for your generous donations!
