A message from Lead Pastor Mike Carlson – October 2022
We are overflowing with thankfulness for all the ways we have been able to bring the healing power of Christ’s love into the community. Thanks to your generosity, we will be debt-free in 2023 as we pay off our mortgage and direct those funds to enhanced ministries, increased investments in our staff, and a stronger infrastructure. Of course, inflation is hitting our budget in the same way it is affecting many of you at home, as needs in our community are growing.
Our annual operating budget is how we provide essential services and keep the lights on for the hundreds who enter our doors each week. It’s going to take the financial support of each of us to ensure St. Andrew’s can continue to help the whole world know the healing power of Christ’s love in our 101st year and beyond.
Your generosity makes everything we do possible, and we can’t live out God’s mission without you. Please prayerfully consider how you can become more engaged with St. Andrew’s to support and grow our ministries in 2023. Now is the time to declare your personal commitment through pledging or giving. Let’s make the start of our second century incredible, together.
