Thank you for your faithful giving to the work of the Lord here at Chilliwack Alliance Church!  

 

Our general fund giving exceeded the anticipated budgeted amount for December but not enough to meet the year to date budgeted amount needed. We continue to carefully manage expenses so priority can be placed on outreach opportunities that present themselves. In addition, many of you have contributed generously to flood relief, local parish outreach efforts over Christmas, and our Fields of Focus missionary funds, we are thankful!  We will be able to make a lump sum payment to our District Loan with funds that came in specifically designated for debt reduction as well. As we begin the new calendar year, please remember that the general fund has fallen below budget as you prayerfully consider how the Lord leads in your sacrificial giving. Thank you for allowing the Lord to use you in this way!  

 

We are ‘blessed’ as we ‘bless others’ and show the love of Christ in this way. May the Lord guide us and help us to steward these funds well!
