Dear Brookwood Family,
Included you will find the budget for our year beginning August 1, 2022 through July 2023. I want to thank our Finance Committee for their diligent work in preparing the new budget. As we move forward with our new vision: We will be formed in Christ to love like family and live on mission, your support is vital.
Let’s consider three specific components of “support.”
As we begin a new fiscal year, prayer acknowledges that we embark on another church year in faith. We trust God to guide us as we seek to glorify him. We commit to walk in the light of his wisdom.
Your tithes and offerings financially enable Brookwood to fulfill her mission, from our internal ministries to local ministry support to global mission partners.
Support means participation, or “showing up!” as Andy has challenged our deacons this year. As we’ve learned over the last few years, community is hard to do from a distance! Consistent attendance makes a difference. It makes a difference in our kids. It makes a difference in the spirit of our worship. It makes a difference in outreach. Recently, we’ve had several new members, and even visitors, bring their neighbors with them both to worship, to Sunday School classes, and to church events. This is critical for our growth as a church.
I am grateful for Brookwood and for what God is doing here and for what I believe he is preparing to do! May the Lord’s favor be upon as we begin a new church year. Wouldn’t it be beautiful for an abundance of prayer, an abundance of giving, and an abundance of participation to overflow at Brookwood in such a way that only God could be responsible?!
Grace and peace,
