Financial Update

Oh, give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever - Psalm 107:1


    It is always good to give thanks unto the Lord, but as we come to the end of the first quarter of 2020, we have special cause for thanksgiving. Tithes and offerings to the General Fund are only $5,017 below where they were forecasted to be in the annual budget. Total expenses for the quarter were $15,274 below budget. Thus, in total at the end of March, the General Fund is $10,258 ahead of budget! Praise God!


    Are we out of the woods yet financially? Possibly not. We were not able to meet as a congregation on three of the Sundays in March, and March offerings were $9,703 below budget. But we are trusting in the Lord to sustain us spiritually and financially in these days that we are not able to be together, and we are confident that He will do so in a positive, powerful way.


     As always, thank you St. Matthew members and friends for your continued support of the ministries
here at St. Matthew. Your financial support and prayer support are more important than ever as we work through these difficult times.


     Please remember that you can give on-line through Pushpay at www.stmatthewumc.org/give or you can mail your offerings to the church at 1200 Moreland Drive, Belleville IL 62223.
