This week I bring you an urgent update on our financial situation at SVL. As you know, last year we received a PPP loan to help us get through the uncertain financial times of 2020. But now as the coronavirus begins to turn the corner, our PPP loan is diminished and we have not seen a return to the level of offerings we were at going into last year’s quarantine. With the PPP loan diminished, we are having difficulty making payroll, much less carrying out the Ministry Plan we approved last summer. At our second meeting, the Executive Committee got a clear picture of the finances at all three areas of ministry and decided to present a clear presentation to the congregation of the current situation and the financial needs we have both immediately and in the long term. The Executive Committee is preparing a letter to be sent in the mail to every member in the coming days with more detailed information about the shortfall, and proposed ways to handle the shortfall. As your President, I ask you to prayerfully review again right now all of your blessings from the Lord (God’s Word, faith, health, and a means of income) during the past year, and then prayerfully review your current financial situation, including first on the list your thank offerings to the Lord. If it is possible, please increase your offerings by an amount you determine is possible. To put this into perspective, one of our members has already doubled the amount they can give once they were made aware of the severity of the situation. I know all of the members of our church want to know about and have the opportunity to respond to this urgent need. Feel free to reach out to me, or one of our executive board members if you have any questions. Tom McBride firstname.lastname@example.org (303)-424-5665
