I believe in this community. The amount of love, inspiration, and hope that exists in and through us is powerful. There is no possible way we could have gotten to where we are without your generosity. Through showing up to make coffee, sharing our stream online, and financially supporting Neighborhood—all of it adds value to this community.
We’re at the end of our fiscal year and we’re putting together our 2022 budget. Like many of you, COVID has had its impact on our bottom line at Neighborhood church. We have made extensive cuts over the last two years and again to the 2022 budget—because that’s what responsible organizations do. With a projected deficit, we’re reaching out to our community to be honest about where we’re at financially and invite you to partner with us at Neighborhood.
If Neighborhood has brought you some hope and inspiration to you or the people you love, would you consider becoming a sustaining member? A sustaining member is someone who commits to give a specific amount of their income on a reoccurring basis. This helps us project our income for 2022 and how we can best allocate those resources moving forward.
The truth is we’re going to have to do everything we can to continue to hold space for people who are looking for this kind of community. We are a community with ingenuity, moxy, and grit. We have shown that we can do hard things—again and again. I have nothing but hope for this community, knowing that we have a good and beautiful God.
If you’d like a deeper dive into our finances and projected 2022 budget, please reach out to me and we can set up a time to chat.
Thank you to everyone who has given and look forward to celebrating the new sustaining members for 2022.
