Traditionally January is the most challenging month for the church’s income budget. As people travel and enjoy the many blessings of summer, the weekly church offerings get overlooked.
Finding ourselves in a negative financial position only a few weeks into the New Year, is always challenging. It leaves us scrambling to pay the bills and chasing to catch up for the rest of the year.
January is a very important month for NewHope. There is much behind the scenes ministry. And heaps of program planning and preparation is going on as we prepare for a very busy launch.
Thank you to all our regular givers. And thank you in advance for your generosity and commitment to ongoing giving so we can launch into this New Year with strength and capacity.
