The total income for the first five months of 2020 is $37, 021.00 and the total expenses for the same period is $51, 558. 00. The net result is a negative balance of $14, 537.00. Most of the shortage of income was experience during the first three months of the year when we experienced a shortfall of $13, 526.00 in income.
During the last two months, our janitorial services became contracted based on the services we need. Our total payroll expenses for April and May is $7,133.00, $5,721.00 under the budgeted amount . Total expense for the past 2 months is $8,950.00 below the total expense budgeted. This made a huge difference in our net balance at the end of May.
At the present time, our main focus is to make things easy for our members and friends to donate to Walker. If you want to donate, but have questions about Pay Pal or another online form of giving, please contact Debra Keefer Ramage at firstname.lastname@example.org, who is happy to help walk you through these processes. Mailing checks to the church office continues to be an efficient way to contribute. Please mail checks to: Walker Community Church at 3104 16th Ave. S, 55407. There is no longer a PO box.
The other good news for Walker is that Southside Harm Reduction will be renting space from Walker in the near future. In addition, Walker is going to continue as the fiscal agent for Reconciling Congregations and also for a new fund raising group in our neighborhood.
Please feel free to discuss any concerns you have with any finance member or with Pastor Katy or Council Chair, Lulu Philips.
