Living on the Edge! – A minute for (financial) stewardship.

 You are “community” people! We ended May with a small surplus. Monthly revenue was $17,691 and the expense total was $15, 272. We will end June with revenue and expenses very close in number. The first installment of three for insurance is $2509. BUT we received a Canada emergency Wage Subsidy grant for $6118. There are a variety of ways of making donations to the church – thank you so much for taking the time and the advantage of contributing to our mission.

“Community is the fruit of our capacity to make the interests of others more important than our own”

The GO Project shared some excellent reading options for all of us not just our youth.  This was included in their latest email to supporters / parents / youth….

…. let us be abundantly clear, that we are listening, learning, and acting in the movement that is calling us to examine our privilege, structure and organization.
 
Our programs this summer will include stories and resources written by Black authors and educators, and we will prioritize mission and justice work with our community partners led by Black leaders.
 
We witness every year that young people desire to engage with and talk about the social justice issues that affect our societies. We will not shy away from this conversation and action this summer.
