PARTNER WITH US
We WILL give 10-15% of our budget back to the community. This number for 2020 stands at $2,500
Our intention is not to “pass the plate” during our gatherings and worship services. We will simply invite people if they wish to give to the box in the back or give online.
We WILL always be transparent about our financial practices
We WILL strive and lean into being generous
No one wants to talk about money. It is the elephant in the room and we get that. But we also know that for Storied Church to ultimately succeed.... it will take money. And the stakes are high. The question we ask ourselves... is do we believe in the visions and values of this church? Does the community need an inclusive, affirming, community-minded faith community? Our answer is yes. And we need everyone's support from time, gifts, energy, and money.
HOW WE SPEND MONEY
TOTAL 2020 BUDGET $18,850
10-15% of our yearly budget will go towards supporting community partnerships. Local organizations that we believe in and are making a difference in our communities.
We want to go above and beyond for one another. This includes providing hot coffee and a meal at some of our gatherings. It also goes towards renting the space we meet each month. And for times that childcare will be a necessity, we offer to help parents with childcare costs.
We like to think of the administration to be the engine of the church. This includes things like office supplies, fees for bookkeeping and the website. It also goes towards online advertising and any video work that we will have done that help extend our mission into the community.
Since we have gradually started adding music to our gatherings. We want to start inviting musiciains to come and lead us as we experiment different worship.
