No longer gather in person means we no longer have a Sunday offering. As you know, your pledge payments and gifts provide the vast majority of income to the church. Here are two ways to continue your giving: you can mail a check to the church (1809 El Paseo Rd, Las Cruces, 88001); or you can click on the “Give” button on our website (fcclc.org). If possible, you might give several weeks or months in advance to help even out our cash flow. But we also recognize the financial strain forced on us all by the current situation, so only do what is comfortable for you.
Because of your ongoing generosity, I expect the church will end the first quarter of 2020 at break-even or perhaps with a small surplus. While we’re blessed to have some reserves to tide us over for a bit, we do need your continued support when possible. We will save some on utilities since the building is closed, but salaries, insurances and other obligations must be met. Your financial help will be most appreciated.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. Bruce Weber, Treasurer
