Like her counterparts in other area churches, Ida Buhler has the unenviable task of making budget cuts. At the recent Mennonite Church Saskatchewan annual delegate sessions, the finance chair reported a $40,000 shortfall in church donations to the area church in 2014. However, by using money held in reserve, council was able to come in $10,000 under budget, a feat that likely won’t be repeated. The approved 2015 budget will see projected church donations remain at $260,000. The Camp Coordinating Commission will suffer a $4,000 reduction in funding, while Rosthern Junior College will face a $15,000 reduction. Total expenditures for 2015 are projected to be just over $418,000.
