Decreased giving leads to budget cuts

Donna Schulz,

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.
