Conference Budget – Schedules A & B:
Please reference Schedule A and Schedule B for a summary of the conference budget for October 2013.
As a result of the faithful giving of EPA local churches to the connectional ministries fund or CMF we ended 2012 surpassing the $3,400,000 budget. Total receipts were $3,401,619 and December 2012 was another outstanding month with receipts totaling $432,684. Thanks to all of the congregations who continue to support this ministry. For 2013, the annual budget is the same as 2012, $3.4 million. Through ten months a total of $2,598,486 has been received. This is $234,847 less than budget and $100,085 less than receipts from a year ago, at the same period. For the month of October, churches gave $256,778 toward CMF and this was $26,296 less than the amount churches gave to CMF in October 2012. To reach the 2013 goal of $3.4 million churches will need to contribute $801,514 to CMF over the remaining two months. As a comparison, churches contributed $703,048 over these same two months in 2012.
