2021 Quarter 1 Financials
As it is in Heaven
At Christ Church, we believe that God the Father is the giver of all good things and that He invites us to join Him in bringing heaven to this earth. One of the ways we partner with God is through our giving. When we surrender our lives–time, talents and treasure–God uses them to reach others with His love, grace and goodness. Our tithes and gifts bring hope to others and turn their attention to Jesus.
This past quarter we have seen God use your faithful gifts to welcome back people who have not worshipped in person for 15 months or longer. We’ve met new families online and in person, as well as welcomed new members to Christ Church! More than 500 kids and students have come together for Vacation Bible School and camps, taking the first or next steps in their faith journey. Your generosity has also made it possible for us to be the hands and feet of Jesus through this current economic downturn and the devastation of the most recent tornado.
It is a privilege to minister alongside you. It is good to be His Church.
We are grateful to God for your generosity. At this mid-year point, donations and other income were behind budget but expenses were prudently managed. The $4.2M of donations and other income provided meaningful connections for members’ and attenders’ worship experience, kids and teens at VBS and COW camps and for continued community building as we welcome everyone back to campus.

HELP AND HOPE FOR THOSE NEAR AND FAR
One of the most beautiful things about the spirit of Christ Church is that we are grateful for God’s grace in the past and hopeful for what He will yet do in the future. This year, inspired by the call of Christ, we plan to dramatically expand our network of life-giving relationships and resources that will help thousands of people move to a wonderful new level of personal thriving and Christian influence.
We look forward to walking into that exciting new future with you and all who make up this exceptional church. May God be pleased and glorified by all we together do in His Name.
We are grateful to God for your generosity this first quarter. While donations were behind budget, expenses were prudently managed. The $1.81M of donations provided meaningful connections for members and attenders during Holy Week, at small and large group gatherings like COW for middle schoolers and the IF:Gathering for women. We also continued to support our mission partners around the world.
