2017 Year-End Financial Report
Thank you to all in the congregation who have given so generously and faithfully throughout the year 2017. This has been a year of challenges and opportunities, and through it all, we can’t help but see and feel the goodness of God in our lives. I know that all of the families of Wellspring have their own stories of challenges and triumphs, and the same is the case for all of us as the family of Wellspring.
As we have been praying at this year-end for God’s provision in the area of finances for our church body, I want to remind you of the many ways He has provided for us as a congregation throughout this year. In the midst of uncertainties, we can rely on Jehovah Jireh, the God who provides, to be faithful in His provision to us once again.
Our congregation has been faithful to give generously to our budget needs and also to many other opportunities throughout the year. Elders Emergency Fund, Guatemala Water Project, Hope of Life International, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Kids Ministry Offerings, are some of the life changing ministry opportunities that we as a Wellspring body have said “yes” to and responded with generosity and joy.
