Inflation and increases in fixed costs present a challenge in preparing the 2023 PUMC Basic Ministry (operating) Budget. If giving does not increase, we will change what we experience—staff, missions funding, etc. We want you to have the best information possible so that you can pray and consider carefully what percentage of your income God is calling you to give. If you want your experience at PUMC to remain as it is, this is what it will take; if not, then there are some things that will have to change. There is more information involved than we can share on a Sunday morning, so we invite you to a special information meeting on Wednesday, October 19, at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. Refreshments will be provided.
