Dear congregation member
It is with gratitude that we as the council of NGLC look back on 2016. It was a year in which the congregation experienced much life through our weekly services and various ministries. Thank you for being a member of this special part of the Body of Christ.
Our financial year also ended on a good note, albeit only due to higher contributions in November and December. Throughout the year, council was always slightly on edge and worried about the financial state of NGLC. We thank all those who contributed to the running of NGLC. Thank you for being financially invested in what God is doing among us!
We sincerely encourage each member to start or continue to give regular, monthly contributions according to their means – nothing is too little and nothing is too much! Our expenses are for the majority monthly expenses and thus a regular cash flow is of great help for the management of our church finances. Here a reminder that all offerings collected in the green bags go mainly to outside causes and do not contribute to our monthly budget. These offerings should be over and above monthly contributions via EFT or envelopes.
As per our AGM, we have budgeted for an income in contributions for R1’062’000 from members via EFT and envelopes for 2017. This will only cover our basic expenses and will not enable us to save or deal with any unforeseen occurrences. Would you please prayerfully consider how much of the monthly R88’500 required to sustain our church you and your family can contribute towards? The banking details for EFTs or monthly stop-orders are on page 2 of this newsletter. Thank you very much.
May God guide and bless you as you allow Him to speak into every area of your life.
