From the Ways & Means Commission

We have made tremendous strides in closing the budget gap this year, down from more than $200,000 to just $80,000 as we move into the summer months. These gains have come through the generosity of WPC’s members.

At the same time, church leadership across the board (committees, the Diaconate, the Session, and the staff) are in the process of reviewing our spending to identify ways to reduce the expense side of the equation. The Session plans to present the congregation with an updated budget by the end of the summer. We will begin the 2018 budgeting process as we roll into stewardship season in the early fall.
