Please Pass the Plate

Here's the results of the most recent "State of the Plate" Survey presented by Church Finance Today, Leadership, and Maximum Generosity :

*** The number of churches reporting a decline in giving during 2009 increased to nearly 36%, from 29% a year ago.

*** 32% said they made budget cuts of 1% - 20%.  Only 14% said the same the year prior.  The top 3 cuts came in travel and conferences, ministry programs, and expansion/renovation projects.

*** 75% said they planned to teach more on giving in 2010.

*** 58% said Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University was a resource they planned to use.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
