Memorial Park Church is a non-profit corporation, completely dependent on the gifts of members and supporters. Our ministry is sustained by weekly voluntary offerings. Many people who give regularly to our church find that doing so electronically is a convenient option, especially during times when they cannot attend worship. Electronic giving also helps the church predict its income so that the ministry and mission of the church can be better planned.
The church presents its budget for the coming year at its annual Congregational Meeting in August. All members are also asked to prayerfully consider the Biblical call to God’s people to tithe (give one-tenth of their income) to support the Lord’s work. Members are given an opportunity to express their faith commitment to supporting Memorial Park’s ministry by promising to give a portion of their income.
Offering envelopes are available every year for each church family in order to guarantee confidentiality and the proper accounting for each contribution. Additional envelopes may be found in the pew racks or obtained at the Welcome Center desk. Use of these envelopes is not required but they may be used to identify yourself when making cash contributions, in order to receive appropriate tax credit, or to specify donations for designated purposes. If you contribute by check without a giving envelope, we will use the information on your check to assign credit for the donation.
Our Annual Report is available each August to members, giving an account of all personnel costs, administrative expenses, missions giving, and program expenses for the previous year.
If you wish to express your commitment to Christ in a tangible way by agreeing to support Memorial Park financially, or have any questions about the church’s budget, financial procedures or your own giving receipts, please contact Catherine Pavlock, Executive Director of Operations.
