This year our budget was the biggest it has ever been in Fort George history because there was some required maintenance to the building on top of our regular expenses. This resulted in a budget of $308,349.00. On top of this, the church voted to undertake a renovation to our space, budgeted to cost roughly $130,000. This money was then raised in full. As a result, our church has been more financially generous this year than ever before in our history. Thank you for your support.

In spite of your generosity, there is roughly $36,000 of outstanding expenses that need to be covered before year-end (which includes paying our missionaries). As you consider this and your year-end giving, please be generous so we can meet this shortfall.
