After running a deficit for most of the current fiscal year, Ohio Conference ended January with a positive operating balance, according to figures provided by Financial Coordinator Stan Helmuth.

Receipts for the month totaled $48,939, including $40,278 in giving from congregations. Expenses for January totaled just $28,442, resulting in a surplus of $20,497 for the month.

That surplus was large enough to erase the previous year-to-date operating deficit. As of the end of January, the year-to-date operating balance was $19,855. Many thanks to all who contributed during January. We appreciate your support! The Ohio Conference fiscal year ends March 31, 2021.
