Giving to the Ohio Conference increased greatly during December, according to figures provided by Financial Coordinator Stan Helmuth.
Receipts for December totaled $54,889. Of that amount, $25,089 came from congregational giving. During December giving from individuals also was very strong. In response to a year-end appeal from Conference Minister Dick Barrett, individuals gave a total of $29,775 to Ohio Conference.
Expenses for the month totaled just $27,017, resulting in a surplus of $27,872 for the month. As a result, the Conference operating balance was -$20,278 at the end of December, a great improvement from the balance at the end of November, which was -$48,150. Thank you to all who contributed! The Ohio Conference fiscal year ends March 31, 2022.
